Fishing Line: Week of Dec. 16, 2013

Top Picks

AMERICAN RIVER

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Sacramento


DELTA REGION, Sacramento River side

• DELTA REGION, San Joaquin River side – The stripers and sturgeon have adjusted to the two weeks of freezing temperatures, and they are biting again. The flats and shoals on the main river held schools of keepers, and they were vulnerable to swimbaits, topwater lures or spoons. Sturgeon fishing improved from central Antioch to east of the Antioch Bridge. Fresh shad still could be available in bait shops from Stockton to Pittsburg for a few more weeks.

• CAMANCHE LAKE – Fishing for trout was excellent. More than 1,800 pounds of Mount Lassen rainbow trout were planted. Bank anglers had the best luck using a variety of Power Baits and eggs, while boat anglers had the best bite top trolling with grubs or lures.

SACRAMENTO VALLEY

FEATHER RIVER


FOLSOM LAKE

RANCHO SECO LAKE

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Red Bluff

• SACRAMENTO RIVER, Redding – Trout fishing continued to be very good, and steelhead fishing improved around Battle Creek. Some nice fresh late-fall kings continued to show up.
