Striper fishing on the Lower Sac has been fair to good. The whacky weather this week messed with the bite for a few days but HOT weather moving in is stabilizing fishing again. Most fish are still averaging 4-8lbs but we did hook our first 2 fish of the season in the 20lbs class this week. The big fish are starting to eat in the traditional feeding areas as the shad thin out. Clarity can be an issue in certain areas as clay and dirt banks fall into the river. Switching up flies based on water clarity in a given area has been key. Covering water is key but fish are starting to move out and not be as podded up. Weed growth is minimal and structure is more important than weed growth right now.
