Isleton (fresh water open)

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.

Shaker stripers are all over. Largest bass go to 24 inches. Whiskey Slough and Bacon Island Road and Old River are productive spots. Use cut anchovies, fresh shad or small bluegills. White flukes will get attention. Catfish also are on the small side. Inland Drive near Windmill Cove has been decent for cats.

Tracy (fresh water lake)

Catfish and barely legal stripers are making up most of the catches. Trolling Rat-l-Traps will get small stripers. Broken-back Rapalas also will work. Catfish prefer anchovies. Tracy Oasis Marina (209) 835-3182
