    FLW just finished up a Pro tourney at Clear Lake so there are a lot of really good details of current conditions on their website.

    Jigs, swimbaits, and any moving baits you want at clear lake. The bites been a little off there but you can still get numbers. Another member just fished a tournament there so i would ask him about what part of the lake would be best right now. At Berry me and my buddy usually launch at Markley cove. Being on a kayak will limit where you can fish but if you launch at Markley you can fish a good portion of the lower lake which in itself is probably bigger then some SD lakes. I havnt fished it recently but i've always done decent on squarebills, 5xds, drop shot roboworms, underspins, and jigs. I've never fished new melones but I have a friend that I can probably talk to about the lake. i'll ask around more and see if i cant dial you in on something

    I haven't fished Berryessa in 30 years but my wife and I did well right in front of the cabin we rented and just walked down 100 feet and caught fish right there, we also caught fished where the river is at the east side, I hope you do well.

    Thanks everyone for the response I'm so pumped I've never been a trip where I can basically fish almost every day and for bass and trout this is definitely going to be amazing
