I’ve been bouncing from the river to the Delta all week and have found some really nice bass lately, including some epic topwater action!
It’s been a busy couple weeks of striper fishing and man are things changing quickly! I’ve been jumping back & forth between the Sac and San Joaquin sides of the Delta and also up the river.
The action has generally been very good and I have had anywhere from 25 to close to 100 fish most days on spoons, Topwater and swimbaits. We haven’t had any giants lately but plenty of good solid fish…though we did lose one on Saturday that was a toad.
We have had a nice couple of weeks on the Delta, with a really nice grade of stripers lately! It’s all been swimbaits and topwater on light gear too. The Sac came up with the big rains a couple of days ago and that’s going to shift things from the Delta to the river system for awhile…
The striper fishing was good last week but then the nasty North Wind started blowing and put the kibosh on things. So far this week, we’ve not seen very good action. Today, Thursday, the wind seems to be tapering off but it’s still coming outta the north.
Wish this stuff would go away already!!! The weekend looks better…
We had to contend with some very unsettled weather today and lots of wind but still managed to boat in excess of 30 stripers, the largest if which went 10 pounds.
We fly fished today with Clousers and ended up hooking around 40-50 stripers. The action was solid but we didn’t see any big bass. Nice weather and nice guys!
I switched to the southern Delta today because the water up north was getting pretty muddy. It took awhile but we found some clean stuff today and ended up landing approx 40 stripers. The average size wasn’t spectacular but the fish bit pretty well.
