hi all. I'm new to the Sacramento area, I'm in the Air Force and live in vacaville, not to far from sac. Anyways, I have had my kids here all summer and we have had no luck. they leave here in a few short weeks and I need to get them on some fish. fishing has always been our thing and I have failed tbem all summer. doesn't matter what kind of fish, just something. They are 7 and 9 years old. Any help would be appreciated!
thanks
Jason

My suggestion would be to bait fish with anchovies or sardines in the delta for striper or go after some bluegills with redworms under a bobber.

How far are you willing to travel from vacaville to fish?

Where have you tried with the kids so far and had poor luck? Maybe you were using the wrong bait or lures?

If you use a night crawler in any water around here, seems like there's fish everywhere.

Got this guy into one yesterday:

welcome to the boards! I would suggest a quick update of what and where youve already tried and as suggested how far youre willing to travel for fish. With that info Im sure we can put together a game plan for you or at least assist with the one you already have, and put you onto some fish

You can always take them to the Deep Water Channel in West Sac. Use cut sardines, liver or anything that has stink and get them into some catfish.

Jason,

Glad you made it. The DWC is in West Sac. Just take 80 to Jefferson Blvd. There is a free parking area off Jefferson 2 miles South of the freeway at the Barge Canal Access. The Port and DWC are pretty cool and one of my favorite holes, but I can't imagine its the closest fishing hole to your home.
