California Delta Fly Fishing Report

Captain Steve Santucci Reports on 1.22.20

Winter fishing has been good for the last two months.   February will be a great month as the Stripers will become more active and the grab will be more pronounced.  My two favorite top water months are February and March.  Its a great time to catch your personal best fish.  Each week their will be typically two to four low wind days.  The Spring Run will start soon!

Cool Winter nights have arrived & the Stripers feeding windows are slowing down. Still some fish to be caught out there but the fish become finicky this time of year & getting them to bite can be challenging. I closed out my 2019 season just before Christmas, one of my regular guests came out for my last Guide day of the year & landed his personal best Striper of 20+ lbs. You just never know when the big one is coming & what a great way to end the season! It was cold but sunny out there, not a lot of fish biting but 1 good fish can make it all worth it! 

As the season winds down I am truly thankful for the guests I share the boat with & look forward to another good season starting Feb. of 2020. I generally shut down for Jan. & get rolling again come mid February as the waters begin to warm. I now have my 2020 calendar open & will be booking trips on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in Spring Striper fishing just let me know & I will get you on the Calendar, otherwise have a great start to 2020 & hope to see you out on the water!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all! Winter weather has arrived, some days are overcast & pleasant with other days being windy, rainy & challenging! We have had some solid days recently with some challenging days mixed in. Overall it’s been a good season with some great guests throughout the year. As our season winds down I am truly thankful for the guests I get to share the boat with & look forward to another great season in 2020! We still have a few weeks in 2019 but the weather has changed, rain has arrived & you better be in a hearty mood from here on out. In a few weeks I will shut down for Jan. & get rolling again come February 2020. In Jan. I will have my calendar open & will start taking trips for 2020. My season generally starts up again February & really gets going come March. Hope everyone closes out 2019 strong, has a great Holiday season & a great start to 2020, cheers!

Delta Striper fishing is good.  I will be fishing through the entire winter and spring.  It is my favorite time to fish.  You have stillness and solitude and there are few people fishing.  It's kind of like it's your private refuge and you can experience excellent fishing.  You need to dress warm so that you're comfortable.  Give it a try and experience the wonder of Winter.

Delta Striper fishing is improving as new fish are moving in.  Fishing was really good on Tuesday .  We caught good numbers of hungry Stripers.  December is a great time to fish as the fish are trying to eat as much as they can to prepare for the cold of the coming New Year.  Give it a try if you can break away.

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.

Delta Fishing Report:

Fall Striper fishing has been in full swing on the CA Delta! We have had some solid days along with some challenging days mixed in. That said, weather has been incredible, Fall colors have been in full swing & we have been catching plenty of fish! The Stripers are generally 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. Some days I have got into many 3-5lb fish with some larger 5-20lb fish mixed in, other days the larger fish have been tough to locate. For large Striper hunting I like Intermediate, type 3 & type 6 sinking lines with large Steve Adachi rattle style Clouser flies in various colors.

Delta fishing is continuing to improve.  It has been moderate so far this fall as we have not yet really had a large influx of new fish.  It has been good for a few bigger fish.  It's hard to predict because the weather has been unusually warm this season.

We are experiencing some fantastic weather for fly fishing on the Delta.  Chilly mornings with warm afternoons and low wind has been commonplace.  We are catching some quality Stripers . I have some openings in November if you want to give it a try.
