Fishing Reports

Napa River

We hear anglers are still getting stripers trolling the Wild Things, Aruku Shad, and Rat-L-Trap lures. However, they are harder to find. Slow down your troll to 3-3.5 mph, as the water is getting colder.


Anchoring up and bait fishing can be a good option. We marked a lot of Sturgeon in the system on Saturday and fished for them for a few hours. But the Catch Happy HQ main motor timing belt slipped and we had to cut our day short. However, we did end up pulling a couple of nice stripers on our bait-fishing sturgeon rigs. We used a combination of Live Ghost and Live Pile Worm.

Bank fishermen are doing well with live grass shrimp, pile worms, and frozen anchovies. Use the Magic Thread to keep your bait on the hook.

All the rains bring Sturgeon into our river system. It's bait fishing time!

Use live Grass or Ghost Shrimp, Pile Worms, Salmon roe, or Eel threaded onto a barbless hook, wrapped with magic thread (twine), and terminated with a bait button.

It's important to keep your bait on the bottom with a 4-8 ounce pyramid sinker and, ideally, a weighted leader. We now make Custom Sturgeon Leaders here at the shop. Come and check them out. $5.99 apiece.

Lake Berryessa

Our friend and crappie lure supplier Marlin Carpenter with Closet Crappie Lures is putting this tourney together on Lake Berryessa. Check it out and sign up!

As always,

We truly appreciate every time you walk through our doors. Thank you for choosing to spend your hard-earned dollars with us. It's a privilege to be of service.
