Rio Vista (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-11-19 20:21:47

Water was clear enough over the weekend for trolling and striper bite was very good for stripers in the 4-7 pound range. Bank anglers get legal stripers. Shorea action isn’t quite as good as from boats.  Live mudsuckers or fresh shad will work. Sturgeon are beginning to show at Sherman Island and the Power Lines. 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.
