 The salmon bite remains strong as cooler evening temps take hold. The bite in the area just improved all week.  Salmon anglers are seeing success. a few fishing finally started getting solid reports of success from  Salmon searching anglers with Capt. Stans Spinnerss leading the way. Water temperatures have dropped with the cooler evenings. Many anglers to the west are seeing more salmon daily… getting close.  Capt. Stans Spinner’s are the best bet for those who want to try.  

Walnut Grove Fishing Report

Continuing solid Salmon numbers with many decent Scores reported Capt. Stans Spinners and K-14 getting mentioned. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove.   Few Stripes are in the area as anglers recover still around as temperatures return more seasonable in the Walnut Grove area as the trolling bite is OK mostly small fish.. Red Eye Shad and small shad patterned plastics are the top choices here as well. Small swimbaits are scoring Largemouth and Smallmouth in the Meadows.

Stripers and bass bite both responded well to the cooler temperatures. It’s no secret what a little fall weather can do. Walking baits are great topwater options while small swim baits and swim jigs get the mention. We found plenty of Stripers and Black Bass with Hair Jigs, Weedless Swimmers like the BIG 6thSense Hollow Bodies getting grabbed. Lot of Stripers on Old River Flats.

  Humphries Salmon continue to grab spinners Mepp’s lead the way.  Anglers in search of stripers are finding solid numbers of keeper stripers from both boat and bank. Most of the nice stripers coming soaking Shad . Antioch Pier scored stripers to27 inches this week.  Shad is top offering. The West as in Honker Bay to the Broad Slough plug casting is getting fish when wind cooperates. Go On Top with Dan’s Delta Mizers, during the day go old school with Hair Jigs in open water White/Dark Green and White/Blue best this week . Sturgeon quietly is slipping into the spotlight. Eel is the best bait over all, but roe and shad also scoring diamondbacks Break and surrounding cuts..
