Thats awesome! I tried in December but no luck I will have to take another stab at it. I might go spearfishing for them in Nevada if I can get things organized. :smiley-outta-here:

Thanks guys! Went hunting them today. Water dropped and cooled off. Fish had lock jaw today for us. Got skunked, not even a bite.

Are you using lures or bait? I saw a bunch of cars parked long the San Joaquin river then on the way back saw a game warden parked behind them.The fish must be up my way right now.The striper's sure will run up the rivers pretty far I was told they do this to eat the salmon fry and spawn.

I am using both! I am fishing around Yuba City. It is early. We always have a few fish that come up early. I love to fish for them. Should be good in about a month.

Fishing gets better for 'em once the water warms up a bit - usually 55-60+ degrees... The warmer the water, the more active they are. The American River is good for them over the summer too...
