Report Updated Feb. 4, 2014
Guide JD RICHEY has been mollyhocking the stripers for the better part of two weeks and he’s had some really nice fish lately in the 18-20 pound class. There have also been days when the average size was really good — 6-10 pounds. Other days, the fish are on the smaller side. He’s been bouncing all over the joint, and depending on the day, spooning in 30-50 feet and then throwing lures up shallow. The topwater bite so far has been slow.

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.
