Lake Berryessa Fishing Report

Report Updated Jan. 10, 2014

TROUT BITE IN NARROWS

Nice sized rainbow trout to 3 1/2 pounds of been eating minnows under bobbers off the bank near Markley Cove, and Capell Creek. Trollers pulling silver spoons, nightcrawlers, and brined shad have also been finding some nice trout near shore in the Narrows. The fish are in the top 10 feet of the water column.

About Lake Berryessa

Perched in the hills between the Napa Valley and Central Valley, Lake Berryessa is a multi-faceted fishery that offers up quality angling for folks of all tastes. Got a 250 HP motor strapped to a 17-foot slab of low-sided fiberglass? If so, you’ll love the lake’s variety — you can catch some big largemouth here, along with smallies and spotts. If coldwater species are your bag, Berryessa is home to some nice king salmon and rainbow trout fishing, though it’s rapidly becoming known as one of the Golden State’s top kokanee producers. Of course, there are cats and panfish here as well if you get the urge…

The rainbows here are nice...but many have ugly copepods on them.
