New Arrivals and Items on Sale!

Everyone is getting excited about spring turkey season - We've been loading in lots of new turkey decoys, calls, camo and accessories at both stores. In addition to the Primos calls which many hunters used to advantage last year, we've added Zink's calls, which should be arriving this week.

The first Spring Turkey Clinic in San Rafael took place this last weekend, with a smaller group of dedicated hunters and first-timers polishing their purrs and cuts. The other three clinics (check out the calendar at the bottom of this page) are already filling up, so get your chores done early and call the store to reserve your spot.

I have been scouring through the inventory, finding overstock, older tems and discontinued styles to create some great deals on Early Spring Discount Tables in both stores. We still have the camo bags and clothing on 30% off. A lot of clever anglers have snapped up these padded, heavy-duty gear bags and put them to use for boat bags or tackle bags.

Even though we've been getting pounded by rains recently, the weather had not been laying in the moisture evenly. The storms early last week did nothing up north - one of our local sources reported almost summer water levels on the Smith River. Although the local streams have received so much rain and have been blown out, many of the northern rivers. This weekend's rains should make the northern rivers fishable, so we'll be checking in for reports today and tomorrow. Rivers up north - Smith, Chetco, Elk, should all clear first.

If you are unable to head up, our local rivers will probably remain unfishable due to high flows.

So - you need an alternatives! Here's my list:

Catfishing - Lake Sonoma, Clear Lake, or Nicasio
Black Bass fishing most our local lakes have very little pressure, fish are finckey but they will bite. (See Joe's recent report for details)
Perch fishing Doran Park some local areas as well.
Sturgeon in San Pablo bay, should be awesome with these rains - this week will be good!
Trout in Bon Tempe? Though none have been stocked, fish are there and anglers catching them.
