Lake Berryessa near Winters, California
Had some good luck here fishing for bass with a night crawler rigging trolling off the bottom of the lake, and with minnow jigs. Word is that spinners work well here as well. Some 5lb bass to be found in this lake along the Markley Cove section. Jigs worked best for reeling in the crappie.
