Shad and Scattered Stripers

Sacramento River/Metropolitan Area:

The triple-digit temperatures have been keeping anglers off of the water until the late afternoons, and the best action has been up high on the American River for shad. Guide Dave Jacobs will be targeting upper / middle Sac shad and stripers this coming week.


Feather River:

On Thursday 6-22 Mike Searcy at Johnsonís Bait in Yuba City reported the extreme temperatures have slowed down the number of fishermen out, but there are still shad in the Feather River with a lot of shad in the Yuba River around Hollwood. The best action is in the evenings, but once dusk hits, the shad stop biting and start spawning and do not want to eat. Grubs remain the top lures for shad. The Nor Cal Guides Squawfish Derby took out 652 pounds of Sacramento pikeminnows from the river systems. There is some optimism for the upcoming salmon season with the solid counts arriving outside of the Golden Gate. Johnsonís has sold over 80,000 minnows this season, and they now are out of jumbos with extra-large minnows being the largest size at the present time.
