The Fish Sniffer - Trollers Working For Kokanee And Rainbows
Trollers Working For Kokanee And Rainbows

Written By: Danny Lloyd, June 9, 2014
Species: Kokanee Trout
Location: Berryessa Reservoir,

Trollers are finding hit and miss salmon and trout fishing at Lake Berryessa as wind has made trolling difficult. Those who find themselves fishing out of the wind have been rewarded with some quality fish.

Fish Sniffer's own Paul Kneeland and fishing buddy Gary Caruso of Auburn recently fished Berryessa and caught some quality fish. "Gary landed two nice fat kokes to 16 inches," relayed Kneeland.     

"Both kokanee were caught on Apex lure at 45 feet deep,” said Kneeland. “We lost 3 other kokes and couple others that we never saw. We ended up catching 2 kokanee to 16 inches and 8 rainbows to 24 inches!

“All of the rainbows came on Needlefish at about 30 feet deep. We kept two of the larger rainbows and while cleaning them I noticed they both were full of big shad, one even measuring 6 inches long,” he added.

Bass action on the lake was very good this past week for fisherman Cody Resendes. "

“I found a consistent bite throughout the lake on my latest trip,” said Resendes. “Fish were holding shallow, but I also caught quite a few out to 25 feet deep. I fished everything from drop shooting to crank baits, but the most consisted lure was a 1/2 ounce Bladerunner spoon.”

The water level has remained at 413.32 feet or 26.68 feet below the Glory Hole Spillway.
