Close To Home… some largemouth bass action at Clear Lake. After a long, fallow, late fall and winter, let’s hope these big bass signal a big bite for 2019. Brothers Clyde and Joel Akamine caught 10 largemouth bass fishing with pro guide Bob Myskey (349-4460) last week. Their top three went 6.5, 5.0 and 4.0 pounds – nice size for cold water fishing.
2019 Salmon Season Openings… are hard to figure out this early. The final decision will be made by the Pacific Fishery Management Council at its April 11-15 meeting in Rohnert Park. There seems to be some hope for a relaxation of catch-and-size limits in the San Francisco management area because of some better ocean counts this year. Here is the latest count that I have: the 2019 forecast of adult Sacramento Valley salmon in the ocean is 379,632 fish. That’s a 65-percent increase over last year’s 229,400.
