Re: What's your favorite thing about the Delta?

For me it's the up close and personal style of fishing, flipping, punching and throwing frogs. I fish the motherlode lakes mostly and catching a 2 pounder on a drop shot in 40' is nowhere close to flipping into a tule clump with 65lb braid a big ol' hook and getting bit. :shock:

Re: Adapt or stick to your strengths

You have to be versatile to fish here in my opinion. You can drop shot fish in 50 -75' of water on our lakes or flip fish in 1' of water on the delta. If you are going to fish all the water California provides then adaptability is going to be key.

Hwy 132 is closed between Coulterville and Fleming Launch. You will have to take Hwy 49 north but this will put you at Mocassin Ramp on the upper end of the lake. Winding slow road but doable.
If you are set on fishing the lower end of the lake around Fleming your looking at about 45 to an hour.
