Stripers good on Sac Side
Guide JD RICHEY said that the stripers have moved away from the San Joaquin side of the Delta and over towards the Sac, where there are headed to spawn. He has been catching a beautiful grade of bass lately throwing topwater and swim baits on light gear and says the action should stead steady for a few weeks. The fish are moving around daily, so it’s important to keep hunting until you find them.
Richey also noted that he’s seeing lots of sturgeon jump all over the delta…

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.
