    Hello,
    Compared to Ohio it's probably not good, but you can find em'. The locals are usually happy to share their spots, so hook up with them. Good luck!

    Well, you are right by the Delta. Clearlake is about 100 miles north. Knotgillty can tell all about Clearlake.

    Oh ya, I forgot about Clear Lake! Good Channel action up there. Everything seems to grow bigger in that place.

    Catman.... being a native of this state, I'd like to set you straight on the terminology of this state.... southern cal is anything south of San Francisco. North, being above that part.... Alameda may better be called "Bay Area" where as anything east of there is central cal....anyway, Welcome to California if you do get here..... you'll like the Clear Lake area, and as mentio ned.... "The Delta" is also great for fishing..... Which is on the Sacramento/San Joauquin rivrers.... east of the "Bay Area"

    Dont forget that you will be living on the Bay.
    Plenty of salt fishing out your front door.
    Alameda is really nice. Welcome to Cali.

    Good Morning Gary,

    Come on over, Because the "Delta Boys" can always use another member. LoL
    :wink:

    When are you planing on making that move, Like my boy Linz said, I'm in San Leandro, Ca. (which is only 5 mins. away), and I would love to show you some of the "Honey Holes" that we have here. I love to fish the Ca. Delta but there are a lot of spots here that you we like.

    You can shoot me a PM Buddy & we will talk more about it. :big_smile:

    Take It Easy,
    Bert:cool2: & Shania:0010:

    Hiya Bert (and the rest of ya)
    This weather has me pinned in pretty good. I just came down with a pretty nasty cold, so I'll be couching it up some more this week. I can't wait till the spring hits so I can start tubing again. I'll probably hit Paradise Marina in early March for some spawning bass action. Until then I'll be riding out the weather. Good luck to the rest of you!
    Linz.

    What's up linz,

    I hear ya on the weather thing :sad2: it's getting to be so bad, that I'm starting to gather-up all of the animals in the area "Two by Two" & I'm also building an ark here at work.
    LoL

    But I can't wait spring myself or just a break in the weather for a day or two, so I can plan a trip out there.
    :confused2:

    Because you know that I'm ready. :0a23:

    Take it easy,

    Shania, what part of the Delta do you like the best. Have had good luck in the main channel down from the turning basin in Stockton and in Franks Tract, but, nothing of any real size. You have any better places?
    Thanks

    Just stay on your side of the bay.
    If you have to cross it watch your back(side).

    Above link is to the state's DFG fishing site. Check out "Fishing in the City" during the warmer months; there are generally leftover catfish after the clinics in the warmer months.

    Trout is the only thing that the state stocks on a regular basis. Stocking schedule can also be found on that site.

    Hey Ed,

    For Fish in numbers:
    I like to go up to the Tracy area of the Delta ("Whiskey Slough Area", "Cal Pack Road Area", Anywhere off of "Whiskey Slough Rd." & Beacon Inland Rd.).

    For Size (& sometimes numbers) :wink:
    I always go with the Stockton & Lodi areas of the Delta (Anywhere in the Northern Part of the Delta).

    I guess its not proper way to geographically divide Ca. up but to me anything south of Grapvine at the bottom of the Grapevine mountains north side is Southern California. Central California goes on up through the valley to about Sacramento then its Northen California from there up to Oregon. I remember a few years back talk about splitting California into two states. It was over water feuds.
