CALIFORNIA: Sturgeon and Stripers Being Taken in the Napa River

Joel Sinkay of Leonard’s Bait in Port Sonoma said, “ The sturgeon bite has begun with multiple limits being reported from the Pump House area of the San Pablo Bay with ghost shrimp, grass shrimp, or eel.

SInkay continues to catch and release legal stripers from the bait shop dock with grass shrimp, but pile worms and bullheads are also excellent choices. He added that, “Sonoma Creek has been good if you don’t have access to a boat, and sturgeon and stripers are being taken in the Napa River near the Highway 37 Bridge”

The Petaluma River has been a popular area for fishermen trying to get out of this week’s winds with reports of sturgeon starting to trickle in. Sinkay has ‘stuffed the tanks’ with bait.
