Catfishing has been good at the boat ramp area, where accessible, or Channel Point with anchovies, nightcrawlers or chicken livers.

TROUT

Trout fishing is slow right now, but Contra Loma will be getting their first trout plant of the season from Mt. Lassen this week and we expect trout fishing to increase.

STRIPED BASS

Try fishing for striped bass at the east side near the dam with artificial baits or lures.
