The Fish Sniffer - Bass Fishing Holds Steady
Bass Fishing Holds Steady

Written By: Danny Lloyd, April 1, 2014
Species: Bass Trout
Location: Berryessa Reservoir,

Trout fishermen willing to work have been catching some nice fish, but with warmer weather on the forecast you should start to see bass push into their pre-spawn and spawn mode.

Doug Hart of Loomis fished Berryessa this past week for bass . "While on the lake we did notice a recent algae bloom which looks like it would make trout fishing tough," reported Hart. "Bass action on the lake was decent to ok while working the points and any structure we could find. Fish were still holding in the 20-40 feet depth, but you should see them move shallower come the next few week to start their pre-spawn and spawn."

"Trout fishing was somewhat tough this past week with the algae bloom, but we did manage some nice fish," reported Gary Allyn of Stockton. '

"We did try rolling shad for a few hours and caught my first landlocked king salmon that weighted about 3 pounds!" stated Allyn. "This was my first time "rolling" shad so it took some getting used to as far as the correct rigging. Once we thought we had it down we did manage the one hookup, next time should be more successful."

Crappie, spotted, largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing will improve as the water temperature warm up and fish move into the pre-spawn mode. Bass should start to move shallow for their spawn in the next few week unless a heavy storm front comes in.

The water level has remained at 415.16 feet or 24.84 feet below the Glory Hole Spillway.
