Striped bass are surging into the Feather River on their annual spawning run. Heavy river flows are attracting the fish into the system this year where trollers and shoreline anglers are catching fish. The most successful method is drifting live jumbo minnows. The best method of hooking up the minnow is to hook it through the nose and let the line out so the minnow and sinker can gently tap the bottom. Most of the recent catches are averaging from 5 to 9 pounds, and most are males. Two fish limits have been the rule. Shoreline anglers are tossing cut bait, including sardines, anchovies, and pile worms.
