Delta Report…. Bait fishing Stripers Sturgeon Solid

Looks good as Salmon anglers take advantage of rain and cooler water temperatures with Silvertrons leading the way. Water temperatures have dropped with the cooler storms. The salmon bite remains good as season winds down. Salmon anglers are seeing success.

Walnut Grove .
Slow for the trolling anglers, but fish cracking the 15 pound plus keeps anglers hopes up. Savage Prey series and Angry Eyes are the top choices here as well, there seems to bit more call for chartreuse patterns here. Bank anglers livers and cut baits prevail for plenty 2 to 4 pound catfish evenings are top for those looking for night fun. Bass anglers try some smallie fishing, crankbaits and brown blue jigs and getting the Smallmouth.

Discovery Bay
Some nice fish coming out of Discovery Bay this week. Bigger fish have been falling for a 8" Savage Gear 3D GLIDE SWIMMER in the Hitch color. Dropshot will put more fish in the boat but the size is just not there. Remember to throw those big baits you need the right equipment, try the OKUMA TCS 7'11" Mat Daddy rod and OKUMA TCS HELIOS reel spooled with 65lb VICIOUS braided line, make sure to have good polarized glasses on because you are going to see some big fish coming to check out this bait. Dress warm and enjoy the your time in Discovery Bay. –Charlie King

Frank’s Tract
Stripers and bass bite both OK but ya gotta Slow down with the cold temperatures. It’s no secret what a little fall weather can do. Ripbaits are great options while small swim baits and swim jigs get the mention. We found plenty of Stripers and Black Bass with Hair Jigs, Swim Baits, like the BIG 6thSense Hollow Bodies getting grabbed. Lot of Stripers in main River and Mildred areas.

West Delta
The West as in Honker Bay to the Bait tossers are getting fish when wind cooperates. Sturgeon quietly is slipping into the spotlight. Eel is the best bait over all, but roe and shad also scoring diamondbacks Broad slough and surrounding cuts. There were many shaker sturgeon reports in double power lines in Decker Island and Sherman Island. There were few shaker sturgeons also reports from Light 42 to Light 49 in the deep channel Most of the nice stripers coming soaking Shad, anchovies and sardines .
