California Delta Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Bryce Tedford reports on 8.29.18

Still 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 the same day! Water temperatures have dropped below 70 degrees in much of the Delta with recent cooler weather. 

Hard to beat large size 2 Topwater frogs for Largemouth, small size 6-8 poppers for Smallmouth & size 1/0-2/0 Clouser style flies for Stripers.

 For Topwater Stripers I like to use 1/0-2/0 Crease flies with silver bellies when they 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!
