California Delta Fly Fishing Report

Captain Bryce Tedford Reports on 7.10.2020

This week I turned my focus to Largemouth rather than Smallmouth & was pleasantly surprised! Found some eager Topwater fish & some larger fish on subsurface Streamers as well. Although Largemouth are more challenging than smallmouth they are very rewarding when success is found!



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! Later in the morning I go to type 3 lines & large Streamers.


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.

If you are into Largemouth/Smallmouth Topwater or just trying to get someone into Fly Fishing please 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.
