12/7/12 Lake Berryessa

Paul Kneeland and Cal Kellogg joined us today on a little scouting trip to Berryessa. We launched at Markley Cove around 7:30 and started marking fish just outside the marina. We were marking fish from 40 to 110 feet deep. We dropped 2 rods with Shad and two with Anchovies both cured with Pautzke Fire Brine. Within a few minutes we had our first King in the boat, it was about a 2 lbs. We kept working this school but couldn’t get any others to take our presentation. We picked up and headed over to Skiers Cove and dropped in 4 rods with Shad and long lined a Grey Artic Fox fly off the back of the boat. It wasn’t long before we landed a 2.5-pound Rainbow on the fly. We continued to work this area and also work the rockslide area with the same setups. We ended up landing 6 nice rainbows before moving back to try for kings again. We ended up landing one more King making our total for the day 2 kings and 6 rainbows. Surprisingly, we found the water pretty clean given all the rain in the past week. We will be back on Berryessa for the next couple days. Watch for a more detailed report and pictures in the next Fish Sniffer.
