Water Conditions:Fishing conditions and Hatches: Fair Not seeing too much in the way of bug activity. Flows are just about bottomed out. The fish are really spooky and aren't too interested in your dry fly. We've been catching fish on small nymphs under a big dry or a small indicator with almost no weight. The flows are down way low, so try to put some distance between you and the fish so you don't spook too many of them. Dry dropper or hopper dropper is the way to go. Most of the deep pools aren't even deep anymore, and a foot to two feet of distance between your top fly and your nymph should do the trick for the most part except for a few select places. Recommended Flies: Dries: Parachute Adams #22, Chernobyl Ant #12-14, Beatle, Fat Albert, Kaufman Stimulator #16, Royal Wulff #16, Rubber Leg Stimulator, Yellow Humpy Nymphs: Prince Nymph #20, Flashback Pheasant tail #20 Hogan's S&M Nymph #20, Glass Bead Olive Micromayfly #20, Hare's Ear, Olive Bird's Nest #20

Went out to Oak Grove Regional Park for their annual Catfish derby, unfortunately the kids didn't get to catch anything, but they still had a fun time and didn't complain. This was the biggest plus for me, though they would have more interest and enjoy it more if they had caught something.

Seems like I keep selling them on the hope that they will catch something, but it still seems to fail.  Really wish I could find somewhere with a good panfish (bluegill/Sunfish) bite that could help my kids catch some fish and really enjoy fishing more.

Thought that I might get out and get a little fishing in, so I headed to the San Joaquin since it is nearby.

I can't believe how low the water level continues to get as we have more and more of a shortage of water and the farmers are starting to plant their summer crops. Not sure of the exact depth, but where I was at, I'm sure the river wasn't more than 10 feet. I talked to some guys that said they came from over by the railroad and the river had gotten so low they could almost walk across it.

Fishing sucked, all stories no bites :(
