Bass are biting on the Feather
Mid-Valley anglers flocked to the Feather River this week to cash in on the strong striped bass bite that has suddenly emerged due to clearing skies and warmer temperatures.
Heavy rain in the last month rose the Feather to unfishable conditions. However, dropping river levels and an increase in water temperature has spurred the bite.
The west bank of the Feather at the Yuba City boat ramp was lined with anglers Saturday afternoon. Those with boats were anchored in prime locations.
The Boyd's Pump area south of Yuba City has also produced strong results for anglers.
The bite should only improve into next week, with a forecast calling for sun and temperatures in the mid-70s.
Look for fish in water that is at least a degree above main-current flows. Try using pile worms or sardines.
