Once again a mixed bag out there as we found some quality Stripers, Largemouth & Smallmouth this week. This time of year it can be a fun challenge to chase the “slam” of all 3 bass species in the same day!
Water temperatures are back at 70-72 degrees in much of the Delta with warmer weather this week. Hard to beat larger size 2 Topwater frogs for Largemouth, smaller size 6-8 poppers for Smallmouth & size 1/0-2/0 Clouser style flies for Stripers. In addition, for Topwater Stripers I like to use 1/0-2/0 Crease flies with silver bellies when Stripers are visually eating on top.
Prime Striper fishing is not far off, October & November are almost always 2 of the better months & will of course book up quickly so reserve your spots soon!
