10-2-16 Lake Berryessa Report by Danny McElroy

Lake Berryessa Map



Went to the lake with my buddy Mike Emory and it started off pretty slow.. We were throwing reaction and top water in the narrows with no takers.. Went out to the main body and caught some cranking.. Water temps were between 68-72 degrees and the wind stared blowing pretty good.. So we took out the A-rig and blades and boated a couple good ones in the  0-10′ range.. Huge cold front moved in and kind of shut the bite down so I started to slow it down a little catching a few jig fish, and dropshot fish.. So back to the narrows we went and I stuck the big one in 50′ of water on a jig and we were off the water at 2:00.. I’d say a pretty tough bite at Berry but quality bites are there..  Make sure to bring a needle with you if you’re catching them deep because I had to pop the big one…. Have fun and be safe out there on the water..
