California Delta Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Capt. Bryce Tedford reports on 5.8.19

Striper fishing on the Delta has been up & down but there are some solid fish to be caught if you are willing to work! Some days they are on a good bite, other days they just don’t seem to bite much, for the most part, we are catching solid fish each day. 

Winds have been up & down but manageable overall, a good double haul is always recommended in addition to a willingness to cast 8-9wt rods with heavy lines & large Clouser flies.

 Water temperatures are 65 degrees in various parts of the Delta, Stripers are in spawn mode, some have just spawned, others are about to spawn. In general, I been averaging 10-20fish, most fish we have been finding are smaller “schoolies” but 3-5lb fish are mixed in & the occasional larger fish can be found as well! For sub-surface Stripers I am using 1/0-3/0 “Steve Adachi” style rattle flies in various color combinations. Get out fishing or book your Spring Delta adventure soon!
