Antioch (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-10-22 20:46:26

Striper fishing is good. Keepers are being caught from the pier and anglers in the boats are going to Decker Island, Broad Slough and Sherman Island. Bank anglers at Sherman Island are getting keepers in the 28 inch range. Fresh shad or sardines will attract bass. Mudsuckers also are worth a try. Gotcha Bait & Tackle (925) 706-7400

Frank's Tract (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-10-22 20:46:49

Stripers are found on the inside and the outside of Frank’s Tract. There was a good push of 10 to 15 pound stripers. Hairraisers and Big Hammer swim baits will work. Pencil Poppers or Whopper Ploppers get stripers at dusk. Black bass bite has been slow. Bass are found 4 to 10 feet deep. Senkos and crank baits are worth trying. Punching also will work. Cold weather is needed for a transition to better fishing. Hook, Line & Sinker (925) 625-2441

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

Rio Vista (fresh water open)
Updated 2014-10-22 20:47:36

Striper fishing is good at Decker Island and the Rio Vista Bridge. Sherman Island near the Power Lines also has been a good place to hook bass. Baitfishing is best. Drifting with live mudsuckers gets bigger fish. Best striper this week was a 32 incher landed at the Power Lines. Salmon bite has dramatically dropped. 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.
