STRIPERS STILL AROUND…
The striper fishing has been good when you can escape the wind. Guide JD Richey reported very good action around Antioch late last week and through the weekend, with 50+ fish days on spoons and swimbaits. The only downside: lots of small fish to cull through. Over on the Sac, things are winding down though trollers and bait dunkers continue to catch some spawned out fish near Rio Vista. Lots of dinkers over there too…

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.
