Fishing report for week of Dec. 19-25

Sunday, June 19th, 2009 bass bite was also a grind in deeper water. Monte Smith of Gold Country Sport Fishing said, "Trout action is good for those running shad-patterned spoons on leadcore line near the surface. The shad schools are forming, and the trout and king salmon action is just gearing up for an excellent long line bite. For largemouth and spotted bass, Ryan Cook of Ryan Cook's Guide Service said, "I went out this week with Robert Mansour, and he threw big lures all day long for only a few followers with no takers. I worked a tube bait or a jig and landed plenty of bass to 3 pounds, but the fish are still very deep at 50 to 80 feet. The bait is everywhere at both lakes, and the shad schools are finally starting to school up. I expect that both Don Pedro and McClure will break wide open for big fish within the next two weeks. " Don Pedro holds 70 percent.

Lake McClure is known as a number’s lake for spotted bass, but there were some huge largemouth bass taken during Saturday’s Merced Bass Club event on big swimbaits. The spotted bass is moving up shallower, and the bite has slowed down a bit for size, but the numbers of spots to 3 pounds remain a possibility.

Ryan Cook of Ryan Cook’s Guide Service fished the Merced Club event for fourth place, and he said, “It has gotten a bit tougher as the numbers are still good, but the overall size is down. Der er massevis av kvalitetsfisk, og de flytter opp fra mellom 5 til 35 fot på enten jigs eller plastik på den drop-shot sammen med den sporadiske spinnerbait fisk. The bass is finally switching over to crawdads, and I am tying custom jigs to match the crawdad patterns. “

The winning team of Alex Niapas and Jason Remmers put in a big fish at 10.10 pounds, but their other 4 fish averaged around 1.5 pounds. Nick Sanches of Fresno posted the 2nd big fish at 9.78 pounds as part of a 2nd place limit with his brother Ron at 15.78. There were 26 teams, and 20 weighed in limits. Big swimbaits were reported to be used for the big fish.

The lake dropped to 55 percent.

The trout bite is best within days of the plants, and the lake is scheduled to be planted around two times per month. Roasttails, Chestnuts, Green Trout Dough Beet, or Mice Tails are working from the peninsula near the Marina, the Brush Pile, or the Handicapped Docks shortly after the plants. After a few days, the bite slows down. Trollers are working in the clearer waters in the river arm above the 2nd Fence Line.

New Melones Reservoir / Tulloch

Bass action is set to explode in the coming months, and there is optimism for a better rainbow trout bite starting in the jump with the reloading of the Kokanee Power net at the New Melones Marina.

Gene Hildebrand or Glory Hole Sports in Angels Camp said, “With the turn of the weather bass fishing went to a slow bite with anglers reporting challenging outings, and tournament anglers were coming in with small bags. Men, i mellem vores første par storms Michael Alaga var på Melones og havde denne 12,6 lb. largemouth bass smash his bait. Med de køligere vanntemperaturer, bassene blir lethargiske og ser etter en mulighet for et måltid med minimal innsats på deres side. Look for bass opportunity using finesse techniques over deeper submerged trees and rocky cover in 30 to 50 feet in depth. Vertical jigging with P-Line Laser Minnows are effective as well as hitting the bottom with plastics on a Texas rig, down rig, or wacky rig with a VMC Neko Skirted Nail Weight. The trout bite has been slow as the lake is still in a transition stage with trollers running their gear between 20 and 40 feet. med rapporter om mange af markerne på fisken finder med bare milde resultater. Ken and Barbara Capitlavich landed a 6-pound rainbow on an Excel Lure. “

This past weekend’s rain should improve things, John Liechty or Xperience Fishing Guide Service said,” The best times of the year are coming up, and once we have some rain, wind, and inclement weather, the reaction bite should start to improve. Every year the months of January and February bring out the big spots and largemouth bass. “

For rainbow trout, the Kokanee Power New Melone pen was planted this last week with rainbow trout with the help of a number of volunteers. The Department of Fish and Wildlife supplied the fish and a bucket brigade was put in place to pull the fish down to the pen at the Marina. These trout will fatten up over winter and get released in the spring. “

The lake held at 74 percent.

San Luis Reservoir and O’Neill Forebay

Shad Boils are forming in the coves at the main San Luis Reservoir, and bank fishermen are finding active linesides near Dinosaur Point and in Portuguese Cove. Trolling is up and down while drifting jumbo minnows or frozen shad remains a good option.

Steve Newman or Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis said, “Trolling has been OK, and we have been selling a number of Urigs as it seems that some of the stripers are coming from the 40 to 60-foot range where they have been for some time. There have been boils, and anglers are chasing them from the shoreline. One of our customers who is just getting back into fishing found boils near the shore at Dinosaur Point, and he landed between 8 and 10 strips with half being legal. The fish are moving around chasing bait, and ripbaits, big poppers, or flukes are all working when they are close to the surface. “

Roger George or Roger George Guide Service said that he took out guests Joel Chase of Oakdale and his sons Mason, 16, and Nolan, 12, on Wednesday. “Fiske var det meste av dagen da vi prøvde flere forskellige lures og områder for et par skolefisk i 40- til 60-fodsområdet. Jeg besluttede å gå til en run-and-gun strategi og vi endelig kom på gang da jeg fant noen aktive skoler villig til å bite. You’re either on the fish or you’re not since they are in tight schools now. We ended up with 28 solid sized fish – all released – to 24 inches. Nolan got his new staff best of 24 inches. “

George said the water is coming up fast and clear with high temperatures (62 degrees) for this time of year and that has created a different pattern than has been seen in the last few years.

In the forebay, Clements said, “The striped bass are more active in the warmer prevention than in the main San Luis Reservoir, and Ripbaits, Jerkbaits, or Flukes are all working. Soaking jumbo minnows, anchovies, or pile worms are working at Check 13 or the Highway 152 Bridge near the moving water. “The majority of striped bass are undersized, but a limit of legal fish is possible.

The Sacramento Delta Sturgeon and Striped bass went on hiatus for about a week within the first arrival of cold water from upstream sources as well as colder evening temperatures, but the fish went back on the bite after a period of adjustment. The river salmon season ended on December 16, and there are three proposed options for the 2019 river salmon season.

The San Joaquin Delta is in need of fresh water flow, and Sunday’s rainstorm may bring enough precipitation to stir up the pot. The stripers are migrating into Suisun Bay and San Pablo Bay, but within the Delta, they are moving south towards and below Discovery Bay in their normal December migration. are changing due to freshwater inflow from the recent storms.

Randy Pringle, the Fishing Instructor, said, “The Delta needs another stirring up as we had a good bite going on the San Joaquin River, but the fish have moved with the weather change of bright sunshine and cold temperatures. The birds have gone and left the San Joaquin page, and this river system is limited to what I call ‘ghosts.’ This is where you see a few birds working the surface and you start to get excited, but these are only in response to 12-inch stripers working 2-inch shad. There is really nothing of size there. The stripers have either moved up and out to the north Delta or they have gone into the interior such as Discovery Bay, Mildred Island, Old River, and Disappointment Slough. The shad usually head into Discovery Bay as the water is warmer at this time of year, and the stripers go in there are getting confused, taking a few weeks to find their way out of the maze that is Discovery Bay. Under disse betingelser, ville jeg fokusere på Sacramento River siden som kvaliteten og kvantiteten af ​​stripede baser er meget bedre lige nu. “

Dan Mathisen or Dan’s Delta Outdoors in Oakley said,” Bait fishing has been much better for striped bass with muduckers or shad, but there are those casting topwater plugs or Bad Bubba Shad swimbaits from Lost Isle south into the Old River Flats , Middle River, Tracy area, and south of Discovery Bay. The water is clear everywhere. Largemouth bass fishing has been slow overall, but there are still fish taken on ripbaits or by punching the weeds. “
