Bullfrog Marina sees surge of new customers during California’s record drought

As California continues to shatter records in the current drought, there’s not much positive to be said about the situation. Wetlands and formerly excellent fishing areas are drying up, lake water levels are dropping at epic rates and the ongoing California water shortage is quickly becoming catastrophic. With all this bad news, more and more people are looking for ways to beat the summer heat. The California delta has long been a strong summertime draw for outdoor recreation including boating, fishing and water skiing. The drought has caused more people to move further afield seeking relief from the heat and a good place to play and relax, which means more people playing on the delta than ever before. If there’s one good thing that we can say about the drought, this is probably it.

To serve all our old and new friends, the Bullfrog Marina has been working hard to make sure we have all the amenities our guests need to have a relaxing, safe and enjoyable time on the delta, no matter what they’re doing. Dave Ressa, the new owner, has been busy updating the facilities, structures and offerings to give our guests a great experience both on and off the water.Among the new amenities we are now able to offer are:

  • Fresh fuel: We take weekly fuel deliveries in 87- and 91-octane, to ensure your watercraft run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
  • Clean restrooms: We know clean facilities are important to you, and we take a lot of pride in giving you the best and cleanest restrooms and other facilities to be found anywhere on the delta.
  • Beverages: Whether your tastes run to bottled water, soda, beer, wine or champagne, Bullfrog Marina has what you want, whether you’re just looking to wet a line or get a full-blown delta party started!
  • Ice: Cold drinks aren’t much good without some way to keep them cold, so we have ice available to stock your coolers or chill down your sodas and water.
  • Information: We know the delta, its weather and the prime fishing, wakeboarding and boating areas on the delta. Just ask any of our friendly staff for all the information you need to plan your outdoor activities.

Additionally, the new structural renovations we have been making are designed to maintain the rustic feel and preserve the panoramic views from the marina’s decks while adding safety, stability and durability to the piers, walls and docks. This will help keep the facilities beautiful and functioning flawlessly for years to come, as well as making sure the slips and moorings are more secure and less prone to damage even during severe weather.

We are also pleased to offer a good selection of fishing gear, so you’ll always be prepared no matter what kind of fish you’re angling for. In addition we have a variety of snack food and miscellaneous supplies to keep you full, fueled and focused for whatever your day’s plans might hold and anything that might come up. Our goal is to be your first and only port of call for everything you want or need for your excursion on the delta.
