The fishing here along the shores of the Colorado river is doing ok. This time of year below the Davis Dam we get stocked trout for all anglers. young, old, shore or boat. The Rainbow Trout provided by the federal hatchery the Willow Beach does a great job in getting us these rainbows to catch. The hatchery takes pride in raising fish and it shows in the quality of the trout brought to us. The stocking sites are Davis Camp Community Park and Rotary Park. We just had a local stocking so I am waiting to see some of these brought into share the story. In the meantime the striped bass are doing well in various proven locations. The shore line at Community Park has gotten a few of some really good spots for you shore anglers. The Sunshine Peninsula also a great spot for stripers and in the bay some trout action. Rotary park has produced some of our larger stripers and limits of trout. A lot of the success you have is the type of fish you target and your technique. Here is a great example our local angler Johnny Krall was using a bomber lure in the 6 in size and landed a 1.04 striper at 15 inches you just never know what's going to get to your hook first. these smaller fish are fast and hungry.  While a lot of anglers like bait fishing its mostly anchovies that have been the most successful while there are other baits to try just to change it up a bit. The mix and not in any order shrimp, squid, mackerel and sardines to name a few. the different types of lures for stripers that anglers prefer are again very diverse with some taking a good deal of skill to get them to produce fish while others are easier to master. Which ever you chose its once you get that retrieve down you get fish. Our local angler Gabriel Rosales shows us a nice 4.6 pound striper at 24 and 1/4 inches he landed using a glide bait in a trout pattern. Hope this helps for now and we will see you in soon Thanks for all of your support.
