Use to curse the flow a few years ago when all I used was bait. When I go after work I usally get to the water as quickly as possible and the bait stores are way out of the way when using a 30 minute window of time to fish in.fished the mendota at grantline a couple of days ago no flow but a couple of nice fish at 17 and 18 inches. Missed a few bites and landec a large mouth about 10 inches.

Talking Re: Northern Aqueduct Fishing?

Great day of fishing south of Tracy . Water was flowing and for the first 15 minutes it was all fish on or bites .temp was around 95 degrees.and the water flowing over the side gates at a fast rate with main gates almost all the way down. Total of 15 to 20 fish for an hour and a half.

Thanks for the tip Barn. Caught 5 today, my first 20"+ biggest was 22". Water flow stop and so did the fish. Nice to catch bigger fish which put up a pretty good fight.

Nice catch , what kind of lure were you using.I used the swim shad last time .That area has some big fish and the biggest we have caught there were not at the gates.Chicken liver for the big ones, having a two pole tag works great at this place.The Farm is on its way to getting fished out , some of the guys from work have been out there and seen cooler loads of under size striper being hauled out by the same two poachers.

Went out wed started a lil late in the morning. Didnt think id bag anything. Started with some LC in amer shad and ghost styles. Nothing. Had a couple bites on flukes. Stopped at gates and fished on the east side because thats the side that the bank was in the shade. Thought the fish would be in the cooler water. Caught one 18 1/2 fatboy. I kept it and ate it that night. Caught it on anchovie.

Talked to a duct worker that was parked. He said theyre cleaning the banks because theyre allowing farmers to pump theur water in the duct from the wells theyre digging to store. And then release it back to their fields when they need it. I noticed a big increase in water levels. Anybody have any success at night?

Where I fish in the evenings, not too much to talk about. I fish until sundown, I haven't fish past that. I'll have to try that one night.

I usually throw Yozuri Sashimi Rattl'n Vibe, but I tried Duo Realis lipless crankbait. The big 22" fish swallowed it. So I guess for now that's my favorite lure

That used to be my Favorite spot, I hate when I see people taking illegal size fish, wish Fish and Game would show up.

Way to many people out fishing this morning. Really crowded at the gates. Managed to catch 2 nice size ones. I'll try again during the week.
