Get crabby.  Upon our ocean blue, from now till rock fishing opens (date unknown) crab fishing is in vogue.  Brion Beetz and Stan Wong have had their fill of crab meat.  Crabbing is slowing down but will probably continue to early March.  I say probably because so many of our fishing rules are decided a month or week before the actual dates.  Rockfish and salmon opening dates have changed each year.  Meanwhile, we have hopes for a good year for trout in our local lakes now that we have water in them.  San Pablo reservoir will reopen in early February and that has been a successful location.  Sturgeon fishing is slow for us, party boats with magic roe do fairly well, but we have not shared in their success.  Striper fishing in the delta is slow but Stan Wong, Harry Sherinian, and Tom Kostik have had some success.  Chuck Vanoncini and sons enjoyed a guided trip for trout on the upper Sacramento River and did very well.
