A decent little Bass from River Walk Park. By the way the Blue Gill are still pretty active out there on redworms. Caught this little guy on Monday the 20th of July in the evening on a live minnow left over from a recent Lake Isabella trip. I suggest fishing at River Walk, the action is quite surprising once you get to know the area.
Hey just wondering if anybody knows...is there fish in both lakes at Ricer Walk, or just in the west lake closest to the street?
Of the 12 fish I landed this afternoon, these 4 didn't make it. The other 8 went back to their home in the lake. A couple of them were smaller, but most were decent size fish. Things really seemed to pick up around 4:30PM. By 5:00PM I could not keep both poles in the water at the same time. As soon as my line hit the water I had another fish.
People were catching trout on worms, power bait and salmon eggs. I had the best luck with yellow Garlic Power Bait and orange Gulp Salmon Eggs.
The trout plants have commenced. They are out there and they are hungry. They were stocked Wednesday afternoon and the initial bite has been outstanding!!
Go get some!
Crappie are pretty good everywhere. Bass are also on the chew. The crappie on the red tailgate are from Isabella yesterday. thas was my first trip to Isabella this year for crappie in the evening after work, and I caught five in an hour or so before it got too windy and cold for me. The other two crappie are from River Walk. The bigger bass is from BV. The little bass is from River Walk. No pics of the cats, but they too are on fire at BV. These are only a fraction of the fish I have caught over the last week or so, I don't take nearly enough pictures. The spring time fishing is on. Get out and get some.
Bakersfield River Walk Report 2-27-2010
Despite the very good reports River Walk fishing was not on today.
The trout were very close to the shore at times, Swirling almost at the shoreline.
Granted the weather was bad from time to time there were points were the sky's were blue and during those times out of the 10-15 Fisherman only one person caught a single trout and three very small bass.
There was speculation that the plant truck never came this week. Despite multiple sources saying there was a trout plant. A couple of the local River Walk fisherman said they had fished all week and didn't see any plant trucks.
I don't know if they planted or not but from the lack of activities it sure seemed as though they didn't
