Hi Everyone, I'm heading up to Berryessa this week to do some bass and crappie fishing and was wondering if someone had a recent fishing report. Bass heading up into the shallows yet? Crappie hittin? What's goin on? Thanks

I'll be driving by there next weekend to go to my turkey spot. We've had a couple nice days dont know if the water has warmed up any though.

You must have a good spot, PE. Many times I see more turkey than bass up there. Good luck on your season.

We should be riding by next weekend, but I only fly fish, so I'll just wave! :)

You hunting private or public??? Isn't there a State Wildlife Area around there somewhere?

Private, and yeah there is knoxville WA. I spent some time in there when it first opened helping a buddy find birds. I did find them preseason but that was when it first opened its probably been raped and pillaged by now not sure if there are still birds on it.

I was there this morning..... SKUNKED. Lame. I saw a nice bass under the dock i was fishing, but couldnt get any strikes. All the reports say that people are starting to catch them in around 10' of water, but I've only seen a couple. Its been tough fishing for me for quite a while. Hopefully the spawn is better.

Thanks pie. It wont be till then if I do go anyway, since I'm spending the early season elsewhere.

Hey TFG, thanks for the reply. Was wondering when an actual fishing report post would come through. I just got back today. A handfull of Bass, a handful of Crappie, and a coupe of Kokanee for an overnight trip. Not what I was hoping for, but it sure beats work. Beautiful weather! Had to work hard for the bass. All on plastic < 25' of water. Most of them just draggin a jig or Roboworm with the trolling motor runnin slow.

Glad to hear you caught somethin. Ya i was stuck to shore fishing which can be pretty tough since so much of it is inaccessible. I know some good trolling spots for a little closer to summer. The trout are easy in a couple months, trolling is about the only way though. good work
