Here's Today's report. Looks like it's picking up...

Midweek discounts are still in effect. We're heading into the stretch run for '05 so you'll want to make full use of these last few months until coming back for the '06 season. Remember, San Pablo 's last day will be Oct. 31st this season,
two weeks earlier than usual.

SURFACE WATER : 67 to 69 degrees

TROUT - BAIT FISHING: Shore fishing really took off this week. Positive reports (limits!) came in from the dam all the way to the pines. Anglers were using rainbow Power Bait and/ or night crawlers with a sliding sinker set-up. The limits weren't chock full of 3 pound fish, but they were all of respectable size.

TROUT - TROLLING: With the lower water temperature, anglers have been able to troll from the surface down to 15 feet. This is a welcome change from needing a downrigger during the summer months. Trollers haven't been as proficient as those fishing from shore, but they are still managing to average 3-4 fish per rod. Mostly, anglers are using clown Rapalas or Needlefish. The best choice for lures has been a blue and silver Kastmaster.

BASS: The bass bite is not what it was, but it is still very worthwhile. Use worms in the afternoon, picking from colors such as purple, black or blue; which always seem to work at San Pablo. Stay at the Main Rec. or on the dam side of the rental docks.

CATFISH: Lots of nice reports coming from the launch ramp. Pretty simple fishing when going for "whiskerfish", as 99% of the anglers are having success with chicken liver. Be sure to use as little weight as possible.


9/24 - Jerry Yoshida of Richmond caught a 5.8 lb. trout from the pines while trolling a Rapala.

9/26 - Bob Otto of Alamo caught a 7lb. largemouth bass near the rock wall on a plastic worm.

9/27 - Victor Marion of San Francisco caught a 15 lb. 8 oz. catfish near the tower on liver.

9/27 - Roy Parker of El Cerrito caught a 5 lb. trout on Power Bait (chartreuse) at the pines.

10/2 - Bob K. of Novato caught a 9 lb. 4 oz. largemouth bass from Oak Point on Power Bait.
