Can you say Halibut? The bite is back! Sunday Lost Coast Outfitters hosted a Fly Fish the surf clinic at Crissy Field.
Matt Tymstra with a nice one
Participants came from all over the bay area to see what it takes to fly fish in the Pacific Ocean. From wind to sunshine the team experienced the infamous San Francisco microclimates.
The clinic is educational but learning by doing, understanding the power of the swell, winds, and strong casting gives students a real idea of what surf fishing is all about.
Towards the end of the incoming tide, Wolfgang was able to pick a California halibut on one of Steve Adachi’s bay baitfish pattern.
West Coast Stripers? We decided to go estuary fishing since the swell was high.
The goal was to catch striped bass on a crab pattern; we have been spotting a mass amount of baby dungeons crabs or mud crab (not quite sure what kind of crab that is.
Look striper loves the Crab!
The “estuary” fly fishing for stripers in unique, instead of a sinking line, Rio bonefish quick shooter was the weapon of choice.
Central Valley Stripers
Always love a Sacramento trip to the American river to see Garret Smith.
Going for stripers in a drift boat is an enjoyable experience, big flies, fast sinking lines, and aggressive strips are all apart of the program.
