Antioch (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-10-15 21:42:46

Striper fishing has gotten even better. Bite is good on the San Joaquin for those using cut baits and shad. Mudsucker or jumbo minnows will get action near West Island and Sherman Lake (both sides). The sloughs feeding Sherman Lake have bass. Lots are in the 30 inch range. Antioch-area sturgeon bite is slow. Bluegill and red-ear are plentiful at Big Break and Frank’s Tract. Gotcha Bait & Tackle (925) 706-7400

Freeport (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-10-15 21:43:47

Salmon fishing is spotty. Salmon have moved into the Mokelumne. Trollers use Silvertrons or Scorpion spinners. Stripers are in the deep water channel and Liberty Island. Use live mudsuckers, frozen shad or sardines. Stripers are schoolies weighing 3 to 5 pounds. Occasionally larger bass are called. A few sturgeon have been caught along Sherman Island Road with fresh salmon roe, eel or pile worms. Freeport Bait (916) 665-1935

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.
