Fishing
Trees have been left in the upper stretches of Warm Springs Creek and Dry Creek in order to provide an underwater habitat for various species of fish. As a result, the lake provides some of the best bass fishing in the state. Game fish also include Sacramento perch, channel catfish and redear sunfish. For information about special provisions and limits, please refer to the latest copy of the California Fishing Regulations.
 
Game Fish
Trout, largemouth & smallmouth Bass, catfish, and panfish, ( Sacramento perch, redear sunfish, green sunfish and bluegill ).
 
Fishing Methods & Bait
Rainbow Trout
There is a small native population of trout within Lake Sonoma. The trout are holdovers from the steelhead that used to migrate up Dry Creek before the lake was formed. The best time to catch rainbows is in the spring near the feeder creeks leading into the lake. In the latter part of summer and into the fall months, the trout can be found deep in front of the Warm Springs Dam.
Trollers pull lures such as minnows, needlefish and crankbaits throughout the year.
 
Bass: (largemouth, smallmouth)
Lake Sonoma has been managed into an excellent warm-water fishery. Trees were left standing in the arms of the lake to provide ideal habitat for game fish when the lake was formed in 1983, after the completion of the Warm Springs Dam.

In 1987, the Department of Fish and Game stocked the lake with threadfin shad. The shad have flourished and they are now the primary forage fish for the bass.

The smallmouth bass do very in Lake Sonoma also, with the Largemouth doing even better. Reports of Smallmouth bass being caught in the 4 pound range.

The best areas to try for largemouth are in the forks of the lake. The upper reaches of Yorty Creek, Cherry Creek, Warm Spring and in the Dry Creek Arm are the most productive areas. Smallmouth bass can be found along the face of the dam, where hungry fish are chasing shad up against the rip-rap along the shore.

Like most lakes, bass fishing at Sonoma is best during the spring months, but fish can be caught most anytime of the year. In the summer months the fishing gets tougher as the fish spent most of the daylight hours in deep water. Anglers use pig-n-jigs and plastic grubs to get to fish that are down as much as 45 feet. In the early morning and late evening hours, the bass move up to start feeding. Top-water techniques with Pop R's, Zara Spooks and buzzbaits entice fish into striking. Fall months can provide as good of fishing as an angler will find in the spring-time. Fishermen using spinnerbaits, Berkley Power Baits and Berkley Power Worms, and shad colored plastic worms and plastic grubs in the the trees will have the best success. The bass tend to hold anywhere from 0 to 20 feet this time of year.

 
Catfish: (channel)
You'll find catfish, after the water warms up. Use
nightcrawlers, anchovy or chicken livers in the coves, and on shallow sloping banks. Fishing at night is the best time since the cats do most of their feeding during the evening hours.
 
Panfish: ( Sacramento perch, redear sunfish, green sunfish and bluegill )
There's a good population of red ear sunfish in Lake Sonoma. These tasty panfish can be found most anywhere in the lake. Fishing red worms under a bobber will most often produce fish. Other preferred baits are minnows, nightcrawlers, and mealworms. Artificial baits such as panfish and jigs
should do well.
 
Must Have Anglers' Tools

Lake Information
Nestled in the beautiful coastal foothills of Sonoma County, California, Lake Sonoma is surrounded by world famous vineyards and land that is rich in history. Created by the construction of Warm Springs Dam in 1983, the lake provides for flood control, irrigation and recreation. When full, the lake has a surface area of more than 2,700 acres and 50 miles of shoreline, forming the perfect setting for a wealth of recreational activities.
 
Lake Sonoma is about 45 minutes north of Santa Rosa, only minutes from downtown Healdsburg and a 2-hour drive from San Francisco. The lake boasts almost 100 boat-in sites for all to enjoy. All boat-in sites are located on various portions of the lake. Visitors have the option of selecting campgrounds that are close to the ski zones of the lake, or selecting a more secluded region for fishing or swimming. Boaters who wish to sleep on their boats for camping may anchor anywhere within the park if they have anchor lights; however, if they tie up to shore, they must be at one of the designated campgrounds. The park typically has cool, foggy, wet winters with hot, dry summers. Temperatures average in the high 90s during the summer with short periods over 100 degrees.
