Captain Bryce Tedford Reports on 12.2.2019
Fall Striper fishing is starting to wind down on the CA Delta. We have had some solid days with some challenging days mixed in but overall a good season has been had with some great guests. As the season begins to wind down I am thankful for amazing guests & look forward to another good season in Spring of 2020. We still have a few weeks left in 2019 but the weather has changed, rain has arrived & you better be in a hearty fishing mood. In a few weeks I will shut down for the month of Jan. & get rolling again come February 2020. The Stripers we are finding have been feeding on Threadfin Shad 2-6” long. I like to use various Chartreuse/white combinations with/without rattles. Size of the fly depends on the bait in area but definitely try larger & smaller flies in a given area. Large Stripers can be found here & there if you are willing to work for them & go hunt. For large Striper hunting I like Intermediate, type 3 & type 6 sinking lines with large Steve Adachi rattle style Clouser flies in various colors.
