Striper Fishing Good!
Guide JD RICHEY said that the Delta has been productive lately and he’s been working the Sacramento side mainly, though there are lots of fish in the San Joaquin as well.
He’s been working topwater, swim baits and spoons while many other folks have been trolling. There’s a ton of floating hydrilla out there making fishing, navigation and even launching tough. A lot of the ramps are starting to look like the Hogback Launch:

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.
