2024 Striped Bass

What a season it was! High water on the Sacramento River ​allowed us to be very blessed. There did come some ​adversities, however we were able to over come them. We ​saw days of boat limits by 8:30am and some days we had to ​work for them. Most of the fish caught were schoolies (18-​25"), however late April in to May we were able to get some ​10-20lb hens in the net! Over all, the fishing was amazing! ​Cannot wait until 2025 season.

2024 Kokanee

All I can say is limits were the rule. Bullards Bar blessed us ​on every trip. The high water in the reservoir allows the ​Kokanee to be able to get a good food source. Each trip we ​were able to get a 12" fish average with a lot of 13"+ mixed ​in.
