Three Gorgeous Days at

 Brannan Island State Park!

The total catch for three days was one schoolie striper, barely big enough to keep. And since it was deeply hooked, I did keep it. But as usual, catching a fish was just a bonus! Note the mirror flat water, it was an awesome three days in December.

I thought my fishing was over for the year, but watching the weather forecast as I usually do, I saw an unusually nice, windless few days predicted for the Delta. I decided to take the boat and the motorhome for one last fishing trip this year - and make it a three day affair.

I don't think I fished as many hours over the three days as I usually do on a two day trip. When the sun set, it was too cold to find much pleasure out there on the water. And two of the three day, I was back to the motorhome well before sunset.

Having the motorhome  means I have all the comforts of home during the evenings. A warm home with kitchen, hot shower and even TV. It sure beats overnighting at anchor!

The boat docks at Brannan are well worth the cost of $7 per night. The RV campsites are just $15 for seniors. The convenience of just walking down to the dock each morning sure is easier than launching every day. The RV camp I use is just above the docks. I can see the boat from my motorhome. It's all a very nice arrangement.


Kicked back, taking in the warm sunshine while waiting for the nibble of a mighty sturgeon - maybe even getting the old waddle a bit tanned!

The ship channel is currently being dredged near Lights 21 and 23. I don't think the racket is helping the fishing any, but it has to be done from time to time. It is a big production.


Heading to the ramp after the last day of fishing. Note the mirror-like water and the wonderful sunshine. It was a grand - if not productive - fishing trip!
