    The day we went,, according to our fishfinder, water temp was about 52-53.

    Re: Any Lake berryessa reports

    I was out there today too with @jwirch. We were on water at 6:30 a.m. and off at about 2:30 p.m. We focused on the Putah Canyon area, trolling in and out of the bridge. Overall pretty slow, though we got on a decent stocker trout and a pretty chubby crappie. We trolled the whole time with 2-4 rods, throwing everything we had at them: Rapalas, speedy shiners, Cleos, and worms. We got both fish on Rapalas. The Crappie was on a small rainbow minnow rapala at 12' on the downrigger, in open water. The trout came while toplining a big billed shad rapala. We also had a hit on the speedy shiner but lost it.

    Overall was a nice day on the water! Very little wind and it got warm in the afternoon. The Crappie was awesome for dinner too. Hope to get back out there soon!

    any advise would be helpful, hopeful fish want what we are offering. Try and keep the girls interested in fishing

    Re: Any Lake berryessa reports

    Was there this morning. Cold and foggy all morning then gorgeous. So if you talk about the weather you know the fishing was not so hot. Lot of bass boats out and a few trollers. Did not see any nets flying. From Capell to north of Big Island for five hours. Tried all the normal stuff and areas with no luck. Lots of birds, marked stacks of fish, but no takers. Started fast (3mph) and shallow and changed it up from there. Did not go to the dam or Pope. Maybe that where they are. Good luck

    Re: Any Lake berryessa reports

    We tried there last month. It was pretty slow... zero hits, no fish. We focused near the Ranch house area, supposedly near the Putah Creek inlet is a better option now.
    Good luck,
    Here they come!
