Good Sturgeon Fishing in San Pablo Bay

San Pablo Bay

by California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau

Keith Fraser of Loch Lomond Live Bait and Tackle in San Rafael reports good sturgeon fishing in San Pablo Bay and they are going to get better.  The water is chocolate brown, and it will stay that way for months.  The sturgeon fishing should last until June and then anglers will begin pursuing halibut.  The best bait continues to be mud shrimp and ghost shrimp on outgoing tides.  Keith said the bay is full of small stripers.  On one trip they went through 30 pounds of grass shrimp due to the small striped bass.  Best water depth is in the “sturgeon Triangle” in 12 feet of water.  Good numbers of target length diamondbacks hitting the decks lately.
Take time to go out and enjoy the great outdoors.  Be careful when plying the waters by boat due to the logs and other heavy debris in the system.  Be sure to check weather conditions before venturing out into the big waters. Stay safe to fish another day.  Until next tide!
