Striper fishing on the Lower Sacramento has been fair to really good. Really depends on the day and the fish like most fishing. There are good numbers of "schoolie" size fish in the feeding zones as well as trophy fish. It is hard to get the fly through the smaller fish at times to find the bigger fish, but it is a great time of year to get some numbers to the boat. That said we are getting good fish each day and seeing and/or hooking some true trophies - just have to hunt for them and cover water. One of the cool things about this time of year are the fish are in all types of water - snags which is like streamer fishing for trout, the big open runs which is more typical striper fishing, and some of the shallow flats where we can fish the lighter heads and even intermediate line with visual eats. July - October is prime time for the sac and with all the water this year it is shaping up to be a great summer and fall.
Until yesterday I was booked up until November but a dear client has had to cancel his dates due to some health issues so I have a few days that opened up if anyone is interested.
