Striped Bass: The Stripers are average size being 5-10lbs. The Striper boils are continuing, and fishermen are taking full advantage of the opportunity. The boils only lasting from about 6am – 8am. After the boils die down the best bet is frozen cut baits like Anchovies, Sardines.

Catfish: Three weeks ago, we received a Catfish plant.  They like the narrows, swallow bay and all the coves with structure as well as fallen trees. Anchovies, Chicken Liver and Mackerel have been top producers. Nightcrawlers and sardines have been the “go to” bait!

Large/Smallmouth Bass: The Bass are out on the open water hanging around rock points, weed lines, drop offs, and any structure you can find. Lots of Smallmouth in the 1.5 – 2lb range this week, most being caught on jerk baits, crankbaits, and Nightcrawlers. This Largemouth bass weighing in at 6.35 lbs. was caught by one of our Dock Attendants, Russel Lovett from Livermore. He was using nightcrawlers in the Narrows.

The water temperature is currently ranging from 67-75 , which makes it best for Catfish and Striped bass. The water level is lowering as we are approaching Fall. Livermore Resident, Mike Schley, Was able to bag a couple of cats and stripers. The stringer came in at 21.1 lbs. with the largest being 6.7 lbs.
