Rules & Regulations

The most important thing to remember when you go charter boat fishing is that you need to buy a fishing license before you head out. The captain will take care of everything else including your gear, the boat, and providing expert advice, so that you can focus on your fishing time and have a blast.

January
The fishing action slows down in winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time. Sturgeon reign supreme in January and are the most popular catch. Ready for the fish battle of your life?
February
It’s still chilly outside (you’ll need to wear a sweater while on the water), but lower water temperatures allow Sturgeon and smaller Striped Bass to thrive, so there’s plenty of fishing to do.
March
It’s getting warmer, which means you can expect hungry Stripers biting left and right, along with massive White Sturgeon. You can feel the excitement in the air as the high season draws nearer.
April
Here come Striped Bass! April is one of the better months to go after your daily limit of this hard-fighting fish. Whether you’re looking for a trophy or just a good meal, you’re in for a treat.
May
The sun is shining, it’s beautiful outside, and the fish are loving the weather just as much as the fishermen are. Expect a lot of Striped Bass and Sturgeon out there. You can also snatch plenty of delicious Crappie, Bass, and Catfish.
June
The high season is officially here, so there will be no shortage of species to choose from. Target Striped Bass, Sturgeon, or Salmon – take your pick and fish on! Catfishing is on fire in June.
July
Want to land a massive King Salmon? July is as good a time as any to test your skills in a fishing duel. Striped Bass is also one of the most popular catches. Catfish and Crappie are very much active.
August
It’s warm outside, but that’s nothing compared to the hot bite on the Sacramento River. Whatever you’d like to catch, now is the time to do it. Salmon, Stripers, Bass, Catfish, and Sturgeon are all in the cards!
September
There’s still time to get your share of the fun fishing in Rio Vista during the fall. Chinook Salmon and Striped Bass are the most coveted catches, but you’ll have a lot of fun targeting Rainbow Trout, Crappie, and Bass.
October
In October, all attention goes to the Rio Vista Bass Derby & Festival, which draws anglers from the entire state to compete in getting the biggest Bass out there. Salmon fishing is still going strong.
November
Chinook have left the stage, and Striped Bass are withdrawing to deeper waters. Sturgeon fishing is picking up this time of the year. Rainbow Trout action is at its best, so don’t miss out on it.
December
The holiday season is approaching, so this is your last chance to go after Sturgeon and Striped Bass before Christmas. For a bit of variety, chase Rainbow Trout in the morning – good action will find you quickly.
