Lower Sac Striper Report

Hogan Brown Reports on 6.23.2016

Before I left the weather was all over the place…rain, wind, cold, and very little warm weather. I was actually in my Simms Pro Dry suit for about 3-4 days which I literally had to dig out of my closet being June! The up and down weather really affects the stripers from my experience and the barometric shifts and cooler water temps slows them down…that said there was small windows of sun and warmth where the fish really went on the feed. The shad have really thinned out early this year as I think most of the shad went up the Feather, Yuba, and American rivers this year. Most fish we are catching are still schoolie size fish up to 8lbs with the biggest being right around 10lbs. The last day I was on the water was the first day we started to see some legit double digit fish follow flies and get interested. One client even pulled the hook out of a pretty committed fish…trout set. Weather is looking much more constant and I will be back on the water this coming Sunday hopefully in shorts and flip flops not a rain suit. I have a few dates open still if anyone is looking to get out. June - Oct is prime time for river striper fishing.
