This week in Fishing
 
Napa River

Napa River Striper fishing is starting to pick up.  Bank anglers are using cut anchovies and sardines to pick up some nice schoolie-sized stripers with some nice keeper size being caught as well. To get bigger fish, anglers are hitting the sloughs and trolling rattle traps, and casting into levee breaks.

Hot Ocean Season

The Ocean Fishing is Hot!!! The second half of the salmon season for the ocean is in full swing with limits of big chrome kings on the menu. Anglers are trolling Anchovies behind a fish flash or getting on a good watermelon apex bite as well. The north bar is producing big halibut with a good number of them being caught as well. The ocean has been flat the past few days with some of the best salmon action we have seen in a while. Swing by Sweeney’s Sports for all your ocean tackle and gear needs. 

Lake Berryessa

Lake Berryessa is starting to show life with the kokanee and trout bite picking up, the big kokanee and the big eagle lake trout are starting to play. Anglers are trolling anywhere from 40 to 90 feet down chasing the marks and producing. Paulina Peak tackle and J&J tackle are the top producers and we have all that stocked and available for you at the shop. Guys are picking up some really big catfish right now up in the creek channels. Ask for Austin or Chad on techniques and equipment to get you all set up to have a successful day on the water.

Feather and Sacramento River

This Saturday, July 16th we kick off our river salmon season. With the ocean being a great return of fish, the river season should be great this year with the return of fish already showing up in the system. We have a few river guides with availability. You can book your next river salmon trip here: https://www.catchhappy.co/. Or, come down to the shop to get the info more info. If you want to chase salmon but get seasick on the ocean, the river salmon is just the place for you. Stay tuned for the weekly reports.
