California Delta Fly Fishing Report
Capt. Bryce Tedford Reports on 7.1.20
Smallmouth season has been very consistent the last few weeks on the Delta. I have been finding eager fish on Topwater poppers. Most of the fish are smaller but some larger fish are mixed in as well. It is such a pleasure to get newer anglers into the sport or watch seasoned anglers enjoy the Topwater action! Many guests have brought their kids & getting them into their first fish on a fly is a treat for all in the boat! I will be focused on Smallmouth/Largemouth through August & the return my focus to Stripers come fall.
Smallmouth 1/2 day trips offer Topwater fishing with light rods such as 4 or 5wts. We cast small poppers towards rock banks & eagerly awaiting Smallmouth. This fishery is a great way to introduce beginners to the sport & fun for seasoned anglers who like Topwater poppers on light rods.
Largemouth 1/2 day trips offer Topwater fishing with heavy rods such as 8 or 9wt. We cast large poppers such as frog patterns to ideal holes in the weeds until a largemouth explodes on the fly!
If you are into Largemouth/Smallmouth Topwater or just trying to get someone into the sport give me a call for a summer date. Also, if you want to get a jump on a Fall Striper date just let me know as well.
