1. EAGLE LAKE RAINBOWS… The trout have moved into deep water and the bite is on. Troll grubs and worms at 30 feet for limits of rainbows to 3 lbs.
2. GOLDEN GATE HALIBUT… A solid halibut bite has developed inside S.F. Bay. Drifting live anchovies, sardines and shiners has been the ticket for fish to 20 lbs.
3. LAKE DEL VALLE STRIPERS… Striped bass are on a late summer bite at Del Valle. Trollers pull rigged anchovies and plugs while bank anglers soak cut anchovies.
4. FOLSOM CATS… Late August is catfish time at Folsom Lake. For fish in the 4 to 12 pound range soak mackerel, sardines or crawfish tails early and late in the day.
5. EUREKA SALMON… Easy limits are the name of the game for private boaters and charter boaters. Rigged herring and anchovies have been tempting salmon to 40 lbs.
6. HAT CREEK TROUT… Rainbows and brook trout are biting well. Crickets and Pautzke Gold Label salmon eggs have been the best things to employ recently.
7. BUCKS LAKE TROUT … Rainbows that range up to 19 inches are biting well. Dick Nite Spoons and threaded night crawlers trolled close to the bottom work best.
8. BERRYESSA ‘KOKES… Big kokanee in the 18 to 20 inch class are being caught near the Big Island. Orange Uncle Larry’s Spinners matched with Sep’s dodgers work well.
9. BODEGA ROCKFISH… Lingcod and rockfish are on a great bite offshore of Bodega Bay. Bars and squid tipped shrimp flies are hooking heavy limits of bottomfish.
10. ROGUE RIVER KINGS… Fall run kings are stacking up at the mouth. Anglers are hooking fish to 30 lbs on rigged anchovies near the 101 Bridge.
11. CLEAR LAKE BASS… Topwater fishing has been going strong. Anglers are working frogs, wake baits, Spooks and popper for bass that range 2 to 6 lbs.
12. RYE PATCH WALLEYE… This reservoir on the Humboldt River is low, but fishing is hot for walleyes and wipers. Trollers are bagging walleyes and both trollers and shore fishermen are nailing wipers.
13. TRINITY RIVER STEELHEAD… Steelheading will get started on the Trinity in October and peak in early November. Both fly and conventional anglers will get in on the excitement.
14. SMITH RIVER KINGS… September should be trophy time for Smith River estuary kings. Both roe and sardine wrapped plugs will draw strikes from fish up and beyond 30 lbs.
15. SANTA CRUZ TUNA… There is plenty of bait offshore. Expect the fishing for longfins to heat up as the weather calms down.
16. DELTA STRIPERS… The fall striper run should get going the last week of September. Trollers will want to pull Yo-Zuris, while bait guys will score with shad and bullheads.Back To P-Line's Go For It!!!
