San Joaquin Side (fresh water open)

There’s a decent topwater bite for striped bass to 6 pounds. A lot of small and undersized fish are in the area. Swimbaits and spoons account for much of the action. Guide Don Paganelli fished from the Mokelumne to Three Mile Slough over the weekend and had some success. Swimbaits were offered in 5 to 15 feet of water but success was hard-earned.
