Spring fishin

Fishing is good. Weather is a fantastic.  Fishing from the SF Bay beaches and rocks for Stripers has been soilid this Spring if you can time the tides areas together. That can be a challenge when good areas are 30 miles apart. Traffic around here can make it tough.  We need a couple of fronts to bring some more rain this way but it has been an OK winter and much better than previous.. If the ocean would calm down when I want to get out there i'm sure the fishing is good on the reefs. Enjoy your Easter.

Bring on the rain!

After a really warm February with the average daytime temps in the high 70s we are finally getting a a couple of systems back to back that have something.Its been coming down all day. Love it!

Fishing has been off and on this year. Some trips are good some tough as nails. Carp on the fly has been solid though and I have not skunked yet this year. They are spawning on some areas but early for the large inland reservoirs and river carp.

Steelhead has been non existent the last month if I count the one trip. Lots of good sized Pike Minnow to grab streamers and couple of dink steelhead but that was it my friends..

We spent a couple of beautiful weather weekends at our cabin to unwind and catch up on chores..well, chores are still there. Next time right?

Drove down the coast last weekend..It was a perfect California day in the mid 70s..popped in on a Elephant Seal colony..They are massive creatures..It was interesting. Also had saw guy standing on a 300 ft cliff. Singing a song with a rabbit on is head. You just don't see that everyday and when you do, it must be documented. I'm thinking mushrooms Ha..

Urban Carp has been great all winter..
