Lake Berryessa Fishing Report
Weather Cloudy early then high sunny skies
Air temp 38-70 deg
Water Temp 50-53.5 deg
The lake is down due to the lack of rain water. When compared to other lakes Berryessa is actually in pretty good shape as they manage the water well here. The morning bite had no reaction bites to offer at all. We then made a change and we focused on points with 40-50ft of water close by, this was the ticket for sure. Persuader Brown and Purple jigs tipped with a 3″ Berkley Chigger Craw was the hot button today. Using light line seemed to get a few more bites with 10lb test Berkley Trilene 100% Flourocarbon line. Keep your boat in 30-40ft of water and chuck the jig up to the point and slowly drag it out with long pauses. The bite is very light. We caught mostly Large mouth Bass up to 3.75bls. We caught only 2 Smallmouth Bass all day and just 1 Spotted Bass. We did have a few bites on swim baits but the fish were just nipping the baits.
