Napa River Fishing Report


Napa River striper bite has started to pick up this week. We have reports of customers landing keeper-sized stripers using live and frozen grass/ghost shrimp.


If you are able to dig up live ghost/mud shrimp, you’ll do well. Here is a cool YouTube video we came across on catching mud and ghost shrimp.


We will begin carrying live ghost shrimp and pile worms over the next couple of weeks.


We’ll let you know once we get our first delivery on the books.


The water is still cold, so bait fishing for stripers using cut anchovies or sardines is also a good option this time of year.


Over the last week, anglers were locating sturgeon and just not getting them to bite. The bite will snap on any day now. Who’s going to break it? Bait-wise, a great choice is eel and night crawlers, live ghost shrimp, and grass shrimp. Don’t be afraid to move spots and try new areas.


Lake Berryessa Fishing Report


Lake Berryessa's bass bite has been pretty good this week. Anglers are fishing up shallow and off deep rock ledges. We had reports of teams fishing in the narrows for trout and getting them in the top 20 feet, trolling spoons and broken back lures. Troll around to find the bite. The fish should be all over the bait balls now, gorging and getting nice and fat.


Lake Hennessy Fishing Report


Lake Hennessy has gotten a lot of water and is pretty much full. Bass should be up in the tuly patches, so it’s time to break out those flipping and jig rods. Crappie bite should be taking off anytime now so come down to the store to get your minnows and get fishing!
