Don Pedro fishing report
Had a late start at Lake Berryessa and got to the lake at about 11AM. It was already pretty hot out so I started right away fishing some offshore humps that were out by goat island. I hit three spots and they were all pretty much empty with the exception of 2 little small mouth. I started moving up the lake and got onto a good jig bite. I was throwing a 1/2 ounce green pumpkin/ brown jig with a green pumpkin rage caw trailer. I was hitting rocky points and fishing 20-40 ft. I picked up some decent spots but never found any largemouth. I was getting bit the whole day so I never put the jig down. Later in the day I tried moving over to the vineyards but the wind picked up and I could not figure them out. Got off the water at about 7:30. The launch ramp at Markley cove is pretty bad right now, might be worth driving a little further to pleasure cove. Tight lines, Nick Lynch

Clear Lake Fishing report for July
Ron Howe and Michael Coleman fun fishing the California Delta in July. Danny McElroy came along and filmed our fish catches for the day. It was cold and very windy most of the day, we made several adjustments to catch fish in many different ways. Topwater, Chatter Baits, Persuader Spinner Baits, River2Sea Whopper Ploppers and drop shots were all catching fish. It was a good day we had a lot of fun RB BASS style! For more RB BASS videos check out our You Tube Channel.
The First ever Bass Pro Shops Northern California Open was held at Folsom Lake last weekend. This was a event where 100 Teams fished for 2 days and only the top 10 Teams moved on to weigh in at Bass Pro Shops is Rocklin Ca on Sunday. Two RB BASS Anglers made the top 10 Randy Walker and Preston Henson, both Anglers Teams had a shot at the title.
The Team of Preston Henson and James Matsuoka squeaked out the win as they edged out Corey Fenske’s Team by a very narrow margin. Preston Henson stated that the bite changed each and every day, the fish were transitioning from eating bait to eating craws. The team used the River2Sea Rover for key topwater bites and then changed to dartheads and the River2Sea Papa Mur Jig for most of their bites that they weighed in over 3 days to take the win with a total weight of over 40lbs.

Sat May 7 fished the BBT at Pine Flat. Lake has been coming up about a foot a day. The weather was cloudy with chance of rain. Water temp was in the mid 60’s. Half the lake was off limits due to a debris barrier just below trimmer. So the lake was going to fish small. We wanted to start at the dam but 6 boats headed that way so Mike and I decided to fish Zebe creek due to no boats at all. We figured it was a good thing let everyone fight over spots and we had the whole creek to our selves. First cast of the day on a Bluegill top water bait a 3.44lb largemouth smashed it. We fished around in Zebe creek rest of the morning with the big fish just slapping at it. With the water coming up the weeds and grass were in the water as deep as we fished always bringing up weeds so we decided to use weightless worms so they wouldn’t bury themselves in weeds ever cast. We moved around on main lake with only little fish eating. At noon we went to the dam and were the only boat there again. We caught a few fish and culled up then we saw the rain coming we saw it and heard it for over 5 min as it came across the lake. As soon as the rain hit the bite was on. In the 10 min it poured on us we caught fish ever cast culling each time when the rain stopped our bite stopped and that was it when it was all over we had 9.70lbs and won the tournament good luck out there.
Lake Almanor Chester ca
One of the most prestigious places I’ve ever seen is lake Almanor, sitting just out side of Chester Ca, hides one of the best Smallmouth Bass lakes in our state. With a huge population of 3 pounders this lake sets up for putting together big numbers of of quality fish . I recently was visiting Jody White at his new lake house and knowing that the fish are starting to move shallow to spawn I decided to go walk the east bank for a few hours . With only two rods in hand my Dobyns 701 and a 702 drop shot on 701 and a tube on the other . I instantly was bit on the drop shot using a Jackson Quon money bait !!!!!!! So I began to walk the bank and pick up some solid fish but no bigins so I decided to put down the drop shot and pick up my tube rod and after making a few casts boooooom got a Big OL Pig so as I started to dial in were the fish were I started putting the smack on em. I was using a 3/8oz jig head in green pumpkin and smothered it in crawfish Pro Cure, I was able to catch some nice fish by figuring out that the fish were on the steep banks next to spawning flats . Let me tell you this lake is about to explode with spawning fish. It felt good to just walk the bank again like a kid and catch some fish.
With a huge sculpin population Tubes and Small Swimbaits such as the AA’s Bubba Shad are great choices .
Always practice catch and release.
