Napa Fishing and Hunting Report - September 22nd 2022

Napa Fishing and Hunting Report - September 22nd 2022

Fishing Report, Chad is on the Elk hunt, Hunting/Outdoor Update, and Gun Shop News

Fishing Report

Lake Berryessa continues to have a hot Rainbow Trout and King Salmon bite! Anglers are catching a mixed bag, with some really nice size rainbows in the mix.  Trolling a variety of spoons and spinners in 50-100ft. The south end of the lake has been producing better than the north. Get out there early, the morning bite has been great.

 

Napa River

The River is still seeing an amazing Striper bite. Some of the best striper action we have seen in years. There is not much new or different to report here, the standard rattle traps and swim baits are still working.  Boat anglers are moving from the sloughs to the levee breaks searching for schools of stripers. While bank anglers are catching fish on anchovies and sardines. This is a great time to get the kids out and catch some fish. For this time of year, the sturgeon bite is still fair. We continue to get reports of sturgeon being caught in the south end of the river. 

 

Ocean Salmon

 

Benicia Salmon bite is showing signs of life. The typical end of September and beginning of October salmon bite is starting up. It’s time to get down there and throw heavy spinners for some crome salmon. We carry all your spinner needs from Blue Fox to Mepps Flying C’s.

 

Tuna 

The Fort Bragg tuna action slowed a little but boats still had great success this week. Our own Old Man in the Sea was back at it. Tom and long-time shop friend Brent Wood it the open seas this week. Although there was no epic battle of giant tuna like last week, they did manage to catch a few albacores. Come down to the shop to get the full details of Tom’s latest adventure.

 

 

Hunting/Outdoor

Well, the rains over the weekend made for great buck hunting conditions. The recent weather has started the rut activity just in time for the last week of A Zone.  The B and C zones opened up this past weekend to some of the best conditions you could ever hope for. I am sure lots of bucks hit the ground.  One of our favorite hunters scored on a great buck in the north end of Napa county over the weekend. Kyle Carlisle made a great shot on a beautiful 3x3.  Congrats on a great trophy and a bunch of steaks.

 

Spy Point game cameras are back in stock this week. We received a shipment of the new Flex model and some of the original solar panel models. Both models are cellular cameras, sending pics right to your phone. Both cameras are a great value at $149.99 and $169.99. Come by the shop and ask Chad for a demo and look at the quality of the pics.Don’t forget to keep checking our close-out corner for great deals on camping gear. Blowout prices on sleeping bags, tents, and more.
