& Fishing Report, How to Fish Lake Berryessa

 

2016 Lake Berryessa Trout and Bass Fishing, see below for Hunting Club, Public Lands, and Hunting Ranches in Napa

The first two to three weeks of October is the great Berryessa trout bite but sometimes lasts about a month.  Then, they are stuffed with shad and go dormant.  It‘s best to have a boat when the area  you’re fishing become unproductive.  Lake Berryessa  anglers use live nightcrawlers, minnows or lures.    
Trout seem to school  because of the cool, deep water so the best trout fishing can be found at  the south end of Berryessa’s dam.   Our Fishing map shows this area. Speaking of water, the lake is still  low right now, and the fish are easily spooked. A full fishing report will be out soon.
 However, in October  these trout come up to the surface where they go after  minnows, predominantly threadfin shad. Anglers do it trolling, drifting, casting and do, in fact, catch a lot of fish off the rocks by numerous places where you can pull in’ get out and start fishing. Watch for turnouts as seen on our Fishing Map above.
Most  Berryessa fishermen use a bubble float, that you fill  up with water so you can cast it out. Try hooking a minnow  through the dorsal fin area or through the lip, some use worms with a bobber or off the bottom. Our fishing report warns of Mercury content, so watch for this.
Anglers with boats use the these methods effectively, but usually trolls rig up with a split shot the size of a pea, put that 3 feet ahead of the lure, and a snap  swivel ahead of that. The swivel acts as a bulldozer of sorts. It  clears away the weeds and debris which are apparent that time  of year.The best lure is a Rainbow Runner, the orange and fluorescent red Rainbow Runner  which is about  1 1/2 inches long.
