November Marina hours are 6am to 5pm. Trout season has arrived. Fellow anglers with water temperature setting at 60 degrees and the beautiful California weather on our side shore fisherman and boaters alike are pulling out their limits. Our trout fishermen have been using a variety of bait Power Bait Eggs in White and Green along with Berkley Gulp Floating Worms in Fluorescent Green, Power Bait Rainbow, orange Twist and lemon Twist, Power Bait Corn and Blue Fox, and Kastmasters. If you plan on boating, early is best with the surge in Trout being caught we have seen the number of fishermen rise. Cat fishing is steady with some good size catches being caught with Chicken liver, Anchovies, Sardines, Night Crawlers and Garlic Powder Marshmallows. We have also seen a surge in Crappie fishing with Anglers catching large amounts across from the Marina and along the Eastside past our boat docks with Power Bait Crappie Nibbles in Chroma-Glow Chartreuse and Chroma Glow White. Large Mouth and Small Mouth have had a few pulled out using Spoons and Crank Bait. Striper fishing has slowed down some but the bait of choice is still Anchovies, Sardines and Night Crawlers.
