California Delta Fly Fishing Report
Delta Fishing Report:
Striper fishing in the Delta has slowed a bit as Spring Striper season winds down. Still getting sone smaller fish with some medium size fish mixed in but we are having to work for them & larger fish are tough to come bye. The good news is weather has settled down & we are seeing many sunny days as we approach 98 degrees. This means Topwater Largemouth Bass are starting to happen! As water temperatures stabilize above 70 degrees the Largemouth Topwater action will keep getting better! For Largemouth I focus on higher tides in the am or pm hrs. Smallmouth are still a ways off as we wait for the rivers to go down from runoff & warm up to 70 degrees or so. For Stripers sub surface I continue to use 1/0-3/0 “Steve Adachi” style rattle Clouser flies in various color combinations. For Largemouth I like Topwater frog patterns in various sizes & patterns.
