Clear Lake is on Fire

What a great weekend!!! Saturday, Konocti Vista Casino hosted the 3rd Wild West Bass Trail tournament of the season at Clear Lake. My partner and I finished second with 40.19 pounds. We had a 11.54 pound kicker plus a 10.05 pound toad!!! We caught fish on the A-Rig, Lucky Craft LV500, And a couple different rip baits. The biggest bass came on a rip bait. Lake Berryessa was a little tougher Sunday but we managed to put together 17.5 pounds. The fish there came on spinner baits, chatter baits, and shallow crank baits. At Clear Lake the fish will be moving onto their beds really soon but we still have a small window to catch these giant bass while they are in the prespawn stage. This week and next are booked so if you want to get on some of Clear Lake’s best fishing give me a call!!


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!!
