Bank fishing near Cuttings Wharf in Napa

#1
It’s been a very long time since I’ve fished the area but does anyone know if fishing is still allowed on the private banks near the boat launch on Cuttings Wharf in Napa? I remember paying a fee to fish there long ago.

The name of the property owner is Napa Sea Ranch. You can drive your car right up by the shore to fish. They are still in business for RV storage, etc. as well. Best to call for details.

Thanks! Paid a visit today. Fee is $1 a person to fish on the property forgot what the starting hours for fishing are but fishing access closes at 5pm. If you’re fishing on the public boat launch dock no fishing license is required. Fishing on the private dock or along the shoreline license is required.

Okay, that‘s interesting information. It was free the last time I went there (but that’s about 3 years now). Okay, even if they said no fishing license required on the dock, if DF&W showed up, the waters are considered inland (freshwater).
