Valley River Striper Fishing - The last week valley striper fishing has been good. The rivers are incredibly low with the indian summer and NO RAIN so that changes the game a bit but the fish are feeding. With weather showing up this week things will change but the rivers and tribs are so low and dry that I can't imagine much will change with regards to clarity or flow. If anything the cloud cover and maybe a slight change in flow and clarity will help the fishing out.
Valley/Foothill Reservoir Bass Fishing - The winter reservoir fishing is starting to pick up on the valley and foothills lakes/reservoirs and should really get going with the weather moving in this week. Fishing the last week on the float'n fly and streamers on sinking lines was decent. Water temps still need to cool down for the bait to come up in the water column and the bass to go on the feed all day. This fishery is an amazing winter fishery and stays in shape when every river in the state is blown out. Many fly anglers are unfamiliar with these fisheries and the fact that they are world class spotted bass fisheries where world record spotted bass have been caught over the last few years.
