 2016 Fishing Report Sacramento Delta Stripers

2016 Spring Sacramento Area Striper Fishing Map see Public Lands Maps and Hunting, Ranches Clubs

Dealing with the wind but still anglers are finding stripers in shallow waters. Lots of success with Angry Eye’s, and broken  back Rebels all working well.
Our fishing report says Steamboat area, Clyde Shoals shallows, West Bank and the Dairy are the hot spots.

Delta Fishing Report and fishing tips:

  Spring striped bass have begun  heading  up the Sacramento River’s Lower Delta, and soon  anglers start catching  some  in the Sacramento and  San Joaquin rivers!  Schoolie striped bass , 4 to 6  pounders  are now in the bays,  currently in Suisun,  Honker and Grizzly our fish report staff has said.

Mid- March is when adults head  into the  Delta, where you fish on  their way to their spawning grounds in  the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers.  Stripers lay their eggs in these  rivers in May and then  head for the saltwater.
Best time to catch  striped bass in the Delta and Delta rivers?  Is therefore from  March through May .
The spring run gets striped bass anglers excited  because water warms up  and fishing conditions are a lot more favorable, water temperatures rise above 50 degrees and  schoolie-  sized fish are being caught now.
Striped bass in California complete their  spawning runs where they don’t need gravel. In fact, they just eject their  eggs and milt into the open water. If there is one consistency at all to it, it’s that a good portion of the fish  move en mass, and that’s when the fishing is at it’s  best.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Our fish report staff  conclude they show in three  areas. On the Napa River, the San Joaquin  and  Sacramento Rivers, and from the Sacramento on into the  Feather and American rivers
For now concentration of the lower Sacramento River, Montezuma Slough, in front of Decker Island in front of Rio Vista, the channel in front of Sherman Lake and Sherman itself, towards the end of Steamboat Slough, up to Cache Slough, and into the lower part of Lindsay Slough.
low flow rates down the Sacramento River will play a role in this year’s spring  fishery. Lower water does mean they won‘t go  as far up the river systems, so the upward range at around Meridian this yea is probable.
With any luck  that higher flows  could get them back up into the Colusa area,  but at the 2,500 cfs range would  keep them below Knights Landing. 
Spawn behavior that  includes schooling, aggressive feeding and territorial attitudes. Rebels with  jigs on spreaders,   use silver plugs alone or  live bait. 
On the Napa River the PGE tower and down around the Maritime Academy,.
Going up the Sacramento River  in the Clarksburg and Freeport areas and up through Sacramento with   action on the Capitol Street Bridge, the Rice Mill, the yellow weir, and Marker 6.
San Joaquin River should see early action up at Buoy 25 off the mouth of the False River and into the False itself, at the San Andreas Shoal and around the corner up the North Mokelumnie River, off the mouth of Potato Slough, and finally the Medford Island area and on up to Stockton.
Whew! What a great fishery!
In the Feather River, action is already starting from Shanghai  Bend down to Verona at the mouth
 In the American, action is more confined down around the  mouth. And that’s also a good area for bank anglers. There are two major ways to go after them, either troll or drift. Drifters use anchovies, shiners or mudsuckers, or shrimp.
