Hello my fellow Sniffers,

I've been reading about some great stuff regarding the Napa river. Does anyone know where I can publicly fish on bank? Please pm me if you would rather. I can give you some of my spots for trading purpose as well. Thanks! ;)

I launch my boat a cuttings warf. There are always peoole fishing from the left side dock. There is also a road along the river on that same side going down river where lots of people seem to fish. Then I see people fishing the train bridge on the other side of the river. Not sure how they drive to those spots. Try Google earth and zoom in. Good Luck

Kennedy Park also has some good access spots. Also southern crossing, though I hear it is a long walk from the parking area. River park is easy access (next to the Yacht Club).

I think you can fish all night at the Sea Ranch. It's just before you get to Cutting Warf launch

If the Sea Ranch is the place where you pay $1, they close at 7pm prompt! My car and boat got to stay the night a couple of weeks ago because of this.

Cuttings has no curfew as I recall.

It is. Don't sound bad as long as you don't run out of beer.
You can't park all night at Cuttings ... 10:00 / 4:00 closed. Or at least they will give you a ticket

You also have the water front in Vallejo, you can stay out all night. Ive done it many times when I was younger. Caught lots of fish.

Used to be legal to fish under the southern crossing, watch for snags on the north side of the bridge.
