Napa River Fishing Report


Napa river has gotten a lot of rain the past few weeks and the water is stained. This means the sturgeon bite should improve as the weeks go on and the water warms up. The water temp is around 47 degrees right now.


A lot of logs and stumps and debris floating down the river:



We fished for Sturgeon on Tuesday afternoon and had to move continually to find clean water to avoid stuff hitting our lines. We had a couple of takedowns on an Eel + Large Night Crawler bait combo.


Lamprey Eel is Available at the shop.


We marked a lot of fish in the mid-to-lower column during the outgoing tide. Once we saw fish hugging the bottom we anchored up downstream and cast to them. The water seemed cleaner in the sloughs, so we spent most of our time there.


Striper bite seems to be a little slow with the dirty water, so cut bait and rattle traps are the ticket right now.


Lake Berryessa Fishing Report


Lake Berryessa got a lot of water over the past few weeks with the rain storms. The water is still stained, so trout and king bite seems to be a bit slow right now but should start improving as the water clears up. If you can find clean water definitely give it a try. The bass bite seems to be pretty decent as guys are coming into the store to report their success.


The Crappie bite should get hot shortly. We are getting Minnows delivered tomorrow (Friday, Jan 27th). Come get yours and let us know how you do.
