STRIPERS ON HOLD
The water is muddy across a large portion of the delta and there are plenty of trees and debris to watch out for. Sturgeon fishing is showing signs of life below Rio Vista but the striper action is mainly in a holding pattern until the water clears.

About the Sacramento Delta
There are hundreds and hundreds of miles of waterways down here that you could literally spend a couple lifetimes exploring and not see half of it. From a fishing standpoint, there’s something going on pretty much year-round here. The kings come through in September and October and the place loads up with striped bass in the fall and they hang around all winter until the urge to procreate coaxes them upstream in teh spring. Sturgeon are also available fall, winter and spring and then you’ve got excellent black bass, catfish and panfishing to keep you busy all summer.
