General Fishing Tips / Re: Russian River fishing?
« on: June 03, 2015, 12:42:46 PM »
There are no fish in the Russian River. Go away  :smt002

Water flows http://cdec.water.ca.gov/river/rivcond.html

Good launches are steelhead beach, johnsons beach, and monte rio beach. Other launches are cloverdale river park and memorial beach in healdsburg. There is also shore access along the 101 north of

Go early to avoid the crowds of recreational river floaters. Use light gear since most of the fish are small sized.

I like to launch at miller park (Marin county park) aka nicks cove. Take crab pots of it is the season. I do pretty good with crabs when I go.

I went 2 weekends ago with another kayak. We tried anchovies behind dodgers, hoochies behind dodgers, live jacksmelt, and swimbaits.

No fish to report. I think it's a bit early still.

I did have a ball catching jacksmelt on the smallest Sabiki I had and light gear! It was nonstop bait catching all day!

I'll probably go again soon and see if I can find anything.

Welcome! Take your time picking out a kayak. Test paddle as much as you can to make sure you end up with one you really like! There are lots of good fishing spots around here and lots of good info on this site!

I like my C-TUG cart. It breaks down nicely and fits in the front hatch of my hobie.

Awesome! I wish I wasn't stuck at work tomorrow. I plan on going Saturday. I'm looking forward to the report.

Craftsmen's Corner / Re: How to make a poke pole?
« on: April 12, 2015, 08:37:41 AM »
I'm all for DIY, but for $11 this is the 12' collapsable poke pole that I use


It has a metal ring on the end. I add a split ring and snap swivel to that. I then use the pre snelled hook packs that are sold everywhere. No need for anything fancy on the end. And when you break off or dull your hook beyond recognition it's very easy to put new ones on!

I was there with my girlfriend. It was a great event! Everyone from headwaters was super friendly and helpful! We test ride everything there.

Our initial plan was for my GF to get some good seat time in a Jackson cuda 12. She then fell in love with the cuda 14 after using both extensively. I also fell in love with that kayak! Now we need to save our pennies.

I absolutely love my 2013 Ram. If you are mostly towing with it I would also suggest 2500. C

Monkeyfaced eel. Aka monkey faced prickleback. They are tasty if you ever catch one. I catch them poke pole fishing. Then again I could be wrong, but look up some pictures of that an see if it matches.

I'm interested in the cuda 14. What year model is it and what color? Thanks!

yes kings has a key for seasonal access, I heard it is $10? not sure but the Sonoma county key is $15 and good for each season, you can obtain it by going to the Sonoma county parks regional office.
The Somoma County key is changed annually and good from Oct1 thru May15th.

Aren't you supposed to buy the annual fishing access permit ($30 recreational or $60 commercial) also

Yes you are supposed to buy the fishing access permit too. Sonoma County key works at memorial beach in Healdsburg, Wohlert bridge, and steelhead beach. A bit off topic, but I have keys and have never used them. The gate seems to be always unlocked.

There is a launch ramp at Cloverdale River Park for put in and another launch ramp at Jenner for take out. The ramp at Jenner is a small public parking lot where I think you could safely leave a vehicle.

Cloverdale to Alexander Valley Rd bridge is ~ 13 miles.

Alexander Valley Rd bridge to Healdsburg Memorial Bridge is ~ 11 miles

Memorial Bridge to Steelhead Beach is ~7 miles

Steelhead Beach to Monte Rio beach is ~13 miles

Monte Rio to Jenner is ~ 10 miles

I can't offer any help as far as camping goes. The river is mostly "private property",  most of it is vineyards. There are a number of nice gravel beaches that you could pull out on.

I have floated the sections from Alexander Valley to Monte Rio a number of times, but I have no knowledge of the Cloverdale to AV section or the Monte Rio to Jenner section.

Fishing wise you have a shot at steelhead during the winter and early spring. Once it warms up you can catch more smallmouth bass that you can count. Most of them are in the 10-12 inch range and feisty. There are largemouth in the lower sections of the river where it is slow moving as well as some large bluegill sprinkled in. You will also catch a bunch of squawfish no matter what time of year you are fishing there.

The Russian is my home water. If you do a scouting trip let me know, I'm always up to get out and do a little fishing. I could maybe be persuaded to make the drive from Jenner to Cloverdale with my truck if you needed a lift when you decide to do the big trip.

Also attached are the average smallmouth and one of the bigger squawfish that I've caught there.

Sweet scooter! Now you just need the brand new Kawi H2 to round out the collection!
