Stampede Kicking Out Big California Kokanee


By: Chris Shaffer Stampede Reservoir is one of California’s most consistent kokanee fisheries every year. On the other hand, it hasn’t had large kokanee for three years. Fortunately, this year the kokanee are larger than they’ve been in previous years. It’s just a cycle and this summer has been on the upswing. Fishing has been [...]

Impressive Kokanee Bite at Bullards Bar


By: Troy Barr For many years Bullards Bar had some of the smallest kokanee in California. This was because of the large, naturally spawning population.

Union Valley Reservoir Kicking Out Quality Kokanee


By: Troy Barr Union Valley’s kokanee fishing has been incredible summer. It’s a long ways for me to drive, but with the quality of fish this high mountain lake has been producing it’s been worth it.

Berryessa Trout Fishing Set to Bust Loose


By: Troy Barr Berryessa is full right now. It’s been spilling for more than 50 days. This hasn’t happened in a decade. We are excited. You’re going to be able to fish places we haven’t fished in 10 years. There are old humps, canyons and canals where we haven’t had any water in ages. Now [...]

Downtown Sacramento Anglers Catching Salmon Now


By: Troy Barr With salmon now returning to the American River fishing from Downtown Sacramento to Clarksburg has been good for anglers trolling sardine wrapped plugs. This year’s fishery has been much better than last season. It’s not as good as it was in 2012 or ‘13, but it’s fishing good. I’m expecting November to [...]
