Isleton Fishing Report

Finally a bit cooler With Big Heat finally behind us, the salmon are still trickling into the area.   The cooler evening temps should help the bite a bit. Whiskerfish anglers Mackeral and Sardines are the best here. Still the Smallmouth continue biting to help you beat the summer doldrums .  Scroungers tipped with flukes and DDO crank are good choices here for the hard fighting smallies.

Walnut Grove Fishing Report

Bank anglers using liver’s and cut baits prevail  for those searching for Whiskerfish. The Sacramento Turning Basin is still decent here as there continues to be stripes caught there by lure tossers. Spoons and small shad patterns are the top choices here as well..  Few More Salmon reports in the area as anglers recover still around as temperatures return more. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove.

Discovery Bay Fishing Report

Keep the moving baits tied on as Crankbaits and Chatterbaits are scoring bass on the main runway rock walls. Bass pushing the 3 to 5 mark are showing on occasion Bladed Jigs and swim jigs are the best for numbers .  Plenty of juvenile stripers are in the area as well.
