    You can check these aqueduct video's, not great video's but you can pickup some info, try to identify locations. I'd read all the you tube 'comments' because locations and sometimes 'other sites' are listed plus see what bait and lures they use on some big stripers. If a few areas keep being mentioned then go check it out. Try the aqueduct just west of Mendota and Firebaugh. In the southern section of the aqueduct in Kern County, in the annual June Striped Bass Tournament, a striper over 17 lbs I think won. Try anchovies, sardines, rattletraps, top water, blood worms, mudsuckers, jerkbaits like Lucky Craft 128s along with tube baits. Don't slip in the aqueduct. Or kayak or bank fish the back 'Finegold bay' in Millerton, try slough pipe spillways. Hope this helps.

    Re: Stripers Near East Fresno

    Yesterday I hit up fish slough off Graham and McMullin SE of San Joaquin, but the slough was dry. Next I tried catching cats in Tranquility using chicken livers. Got one bite in two hours. But I caught two clams, so no skunk I guess.

    FarmerG, I fished the San Luis Reservoir and the O'Neill Forebay mid June with no luck. I will try again over my next break, but it is a long drive.

    San Luis Reservoir east of Los Banos. Both the reservoir or the forebay have stripers. Also the canals around Mendota and Firebaugh. Try Bass ave just on the north side of Mendota. About a mile off of Hwy 33 at the slough. Good luck.

    Stripers Near East Fresno

    I live in Sanger, near Pine Flat, but not much else. With the river restrictions and flood banks of the lake I need something new to fish for. Where can I find stripers? I don't want to look like an idiot casting into any canal I find. What waterways are they in? Any help is appreciated.
