Report Updated April 8, 2013
The striper fishing has been really, really good of late (except Sunday & Monday when the wind blew). Guide JD Richey had some monster days last week and landed as many as 60 stripers on topwater plugs per trip. He’s been on the lower San Joaquin, but the Sacramento side has been good as well for trollers working the West Bank with Yo-Zuri’s and Bombers. The black bass fishing has also been really good and anglers fishing jigs, worms and lizards in the shallows have been finding lots of fat, pre-spawn largemouth.

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.
