California Delta Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Bryce Tedford reports on 9.20.18

With cooler nights come cooler water temperatures, Smallmouth Bass fishing has slowed up & I now transition to  Largemouth/Stripers throughout the Delta! Water temperatures are 67-68 degrees in much of the Delta with cooler nights setting in. 

For Largemouth it’s hard to beat size 2 Topwater frogs or 1/0-2/0 crease flies when they are keying on baitfish. 

For Largemouth & Stripers sub surface I use 1/0-2/0 Clouser style flies. For Topwater Stripers I like 1/0-2/0 Crease flies with silver bellies when they are visually eating on top & the birds will show you where they are. Prime Striper fishing is coming up, October & November are 2 of the better months & will of course book up quickly so reserve your spots soon!
