We're back after a week off, and ready for a great week of fishing! There's good weather in the forecast, and plenty on the best bites list...stripers, salmon, and Shasta Lake bass, just to name a few.

This Saturday, June 1st is the Hooked On Fishing free kids' fishing event in Chico, and Steve Carson joins us to talk about this great community day that reaches thousands of kids (Volunteers are needed!

Windy conditions have made salmon fishing tough for folks in the San Francisco Bay Area this week, but there's plenty of other action to be had. Lake Berryessa is just one of the hot spots, there are springtime stripers on the Delta and rivers, and of course we're counting down to the trout opener in the Eastern Sierra and the salmon opener for the North Coast.

Matt Heron joins us today with an update on fly fishing in the Truckee area. Troy from Clear Lake Outdoors fills us in on the bass bite there. Joel Sinkay has the latest on the striper and sturgeon derby going on in the North Bay. And we've got a ton of reports from the RodMob community to share.
