Legal sturgeon are being caught in Broad Slough and at the Mothball Fleet. Eel works best at the fleet, otherwise ghost shrimp has been effective. Salmon roe is a good bet. Gotcha Bait & Tackle (925) 706-7400

Black bass fishing is slowly improving. Most are drop-shotting with Senkos (black and blue or green pumpkin). Some get fish with jigs. Striper bite is slow. Those who are succeeded use swim baits. Some employ Rat-l-Traps. Hook, Line & Sinker (925) 625-2441

Freeport (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-12-03 21:00:54

Pile worms, mudsuckers and cut sardines get stripers at Courtland and Freeport. Many are in the 5 to 10 pound range. Stripers also are congregating in the deep water channel and Liberty Island. Sturgeon are moving up. Use eel and nightcrawlers. Sturgeon are in Cache Slough. River is getting muddy and there is a lot of debris. That will hurt striper fishing but aid sturgeon prospects. Freeport Bait (916) 665-1935

Sturgeon bite has been solid between the boat ramp and bridge. Marker 29 also has been a solid spot. Ghost shrimp, anchovies and nightcrawlers all have accounted for sturgeon. Stripers are being caught near Marker 29 with ghost shrimp. Hap’s Bait (707) 374-2372

San Joaquin Side (fresh water open)
Updated 2013-12-04 21:05:54

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.
