Bass Biting at Clear Lake

The Minn Kota Ultrex is mounted and it is awesome! I got to go out on Clear Lake a couple times over the last few days and while the bite isn’t great, it is much better than it has been. Each day we caught at least 15 bass with a big fish over 7 pounds each day. Lake Berryessa is also turning on. My partner and I caught around 25 bass in a tournament there weekend before last with the best 5 weighing almost 18 pounds. Februray can be a great month at both lakes so if you want some great prespawn fishing it’s time to book your trip!

Full Lakes

The rains this year are doing wonders for NorCal lakes. Lake Berryessa is very likely to reach the Glory Hole this year as it is only 7 feet down now and rising fast. We got 3.5 inches of rain in Lake County last night and a lot of that water goes directly into Lake Berryessa. It has actually come up 2 feet in the last 24 hours and still rising. However the rising water and unstable weather are not helping the fishing. I fished there last weekend and caught fish on a spinner bait, the A-Rig, jigs and drop shot. The better fish were shallow but I caught bass down to 25 feet. The great thing about Berryessa is that there are Smallmouth, Largemouth, Spotted Bass, and Meanmouth Bass there so you can usually find something willing to eat! As far as Clear Lake goes, at this time there is a 5 mile per hour limit on boats because of flooding. That probably would have been lifted today but the rain last night has brought the lake back to 8.6 feet which is nearly at flood stage and she’s still rising. It could be a few weeks before that it lifted now. As soon as it is I will be out there looking for some Clear Lake Giants!!

Clear Lake vs Lake Shasta

Well Lake Shasta is officially off limits to all competitors in the WWBT pro/am next weekend. Looking forward to fishing that tournament again this year. As far as Clear Lake there are some good bass and crappie being caught. The water is starting to stabilize and clear so the fishing is only going to get better. Wether you are looking to catch a huge limit of crappie or the bass of a lifetime now is the time to head to Clear Lake. As far as Lake Bwrryessa goes it is filling fast and the fish are eating. Call me and let’s do it!!!

WWBT at Lake Oroville

Yesterday was the first Wild West team tournament of the year and the rising water made it tough for a lot of the fishermen. My partner and I caught about 20 keeper bass with the best 7 (7 fish limit with WWBT) weighing 12.38 which was good enough for 8th place. Not bad in a 167 boat field. Congrats to Kris Sisto and Tim Rhyme with the winning sack weighing 14.70 pounds and Zack Thompson with the big fish of 4.93. Now it’s time to focus on Clear Lake. The stable weather and clearing water should get the big bass biting here so if your ready for some late winter, early spring bass busting hit me up!

Clear Lake is Rising and Muddy

Well Clear Lake is on the rise again. By the end of this storm Clear Lake will be over 5 feet which is a good start to the rainy season. Possibly full by the end of the month. So far today we have 4.25 inches and still come down. I live in Hidden Valley on Putah creek which flow into Lake Berryessa. It’s a river now so Berryessa will come up a lot also. Looking forward to some good fishing once this storm move out.

Warmer Weather Means Warmer Water and Hungry Bass

Clear Lake is still coming up and the forecast calls for a warm weekend. This is going to get the fish moving up into th shallow waters and make them want to eat! I’ll be out this week getting ready for the ABA tournament on Sunday. While most people are home getting ready for the super bowl, I’ll be out there trying to win another American Bass tournament. If you are interested in going out this week give me a call, I’ll be fishing the rest of the week. Should be able to catch fish using rip baits such as the Lucky Craft Stacey 90, also swimbaits, jigs, and A-rigs.
The fishing at Lake Berryessa is also starting to pick up. The fish are still deep there but they are feeding up so they’ll be moving up soon. Jigs and Senkos are key lures there along with the A-rig. If you are look for a guide for either of these lake give me a call and let’s go get em.

Changing Gears

Well after a 8th place finish in the Wild West Bass Trail at Lake Oroville and a 3rd place finish at Lake Berryessa in the Berryessa Bass Tounament Trail, it’s good to be back home on Clear Lake! Now it’s time to get ready for the American Bass tournament here this Sunday. We have gotten quite a bit of rain this season but both Clear Lake and Berryessa need a lot more water!
