    Re: Illegals Only

    Sounds like a nice day out.

    Sometimes moving to shallower water with more current can lead to bigger fish. Look for flats or cuts into and out of flooded islands etc., vs fishing the main...

    Sturgeon are prone to getting snagged, and I've never really understood why. I've snagged them trolling, jigging and bait fishing. Even snagged one once...

    Re: Salmon falls at folsom

    I read "at the existing level of the lake" to mean, when you're fishing. If they meant full, they'd have referred to the high water mark. No other reason for that language as best I can tell.

  9. Re: Highway 1 and 101 Trout? (Norcal basically)

    Walmart in my town does. Check the regs carefully. A lot of the smaller creeks and rivers have special regulations and low flow closures. They also say 2 hatchery steelhead per day, but most donít...
  10. Re: Highway 1 and 101 Trout? (Norcal basically)

    Not for trout specifically, but there are a lot of creeks and rivers with steelhead, and this is prime time. You don't read a lot about most of them as they're small and most have wild fish you...
  11. Re: Looking for information on the trout found in San Leandro and San Antonio Reservo

    There are a lot of creeks and small rivers on the coast with fishable populations of steelhead. Garcia, Gualala, Navarro, Noyo, Greenwood Creek are a few that get very little publicity but are cool...

    Re: sturgeon take down and a miss

    My opinion is it depends of where and when. Fish in the bay and delta tend to graze. They normally have a decent food base so they can be a bit picky. Most folks feel setting the hook catches more...
