    . . . I caught my first catfish of the year. It was 21", 3.5#, and excellent with ginger and soy. I managed to bring it in with a #6 octopus hook and a 6# test leader. It went for a combination of Power Egg (R) and Power Bait (R).

    Those of you in the Silicon Valley area may want to go to Vasona; the fish I caught was part of a plant of 1000# of fish. I didn't find out about that until after I'd made my catch.

    The DFG planted some very nice rainbows (>12"). I ended up with two on the day I caught my first catfish. With the weather warming up, it's hard to say how much longer the trout will last though.
