Can anybody tell me where there is a good place to fish for winter Catfish & crappie. I live In Roseville.I fish the Delta in the Stockton area.

dunno about crappie, but Camp Far West is a good year round catfish hole.

Berryessa is kind of my home lake, and she's definitely got big crappie and lots of channels; however, you really gotta spend your time looking for them, especially now with the water cold. For winter crappie, I'd hit a dock in pretty deep water (~40 feet) and fish real small tube jigs or small minnows RIGHT ON THE BOTTOM. SLOW is the key word here. For channels, I'd look at the mouths of feeder streams in deep (again, ~40 feet) holes and fish 'em with bigger minnows. Stability of the weather is really important right now, and it looks like it's not gonna change too much in the next week or so. As a result, the next couple days might be off the hook.
