Delta Fishing Report:Striper fishing on the Delta has been going strong! That said, we have had a windy week which has made it challenging to target the fish. Wind casting skills are currently at a premium on the Delta.
Water temperatures are 55-60 degrees in various parts of the Delta & Stripers will likely spawn in the next few weeks. Last few times out I have I been averaging 10-20 fish, most fish we have been finding are smaller “schoolies” but 3-5lb fish are mixed in & the occasional larger fish can be found as well!
For sub-surface Stripers I am using 1/0-3/0 “Steve Adachi” style rattle Clouser flies in various color combinations.
The master Striper fly tier & fisher Steve Adachi came on the boat this week, following is a solid pic of fish he caught & some pics of his cherished flies you can get at Lost Coast Outfitters. Get out fishing or book your Spring Delta adventure soon before it’s all over!
