SOME STRIPERS AROUND
The waters have cleared enough for striper casting/trolling. There are scattered fish pods around but the bulk of the bass are up the Sacramento River spawning. The latest action has been centered around the lower Santa Clara Shoals where trollers have been hitting some fish with Yo-Zuri’s and over off Decker on the Sacramento Side.
Though there aren’t huge numbers around, there have been some big hens caught lately. Just be sure to let the big ones go to spawn!

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.
