The salmon bite remains spotty as season winds down. The bite in the area just improved all week. Striper anglers are seeing success. a few fishing finally started getting solid reports of success from Striper searching anglers with P-Line Predators leading the way. Water temperatures have dropped with the cooler evenings. Many anglers to the west are seeing more stripes daily… getting close.

More 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 with Predators and Savage Prey.

Stripers and bass bite both doing Ok as they respond well to the cooler 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.

West Delta Fishing Report
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, anchovies and sardines . Antioch Pier scored stripers 17pounds this week. Shad is top offering. The West as in Honker Bay to the Broad Slough plug casting is 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.

Report: Black Friday Delta report
Unread postby Kyle46N » Fri Nov 24, 2017 4:29 pm
The kids and I were on the water early and bee lined to the Old River area. We spent most of our time in those canals near Holland's Riverside Marina. Thanks to Mr Lassagne's recent report on his FB page of throwing cranks, we busted out the red square bills. I've read plenty about the necessity of red on the Delta, but combined with my lack of confidence in cranking, I hadn't thrown the red cranks up until today. Well, I learned something today. The fish like red cranks.... :D We didn't catch anything bigger than 3 lbs, and most were a pound or two, but it was still fun. The bass were crushing it. I didn't miss a single fish. Caught somewhere around 30 in about 5 hours of fishing. My little boy and girl also were able to get their first crank fish. We didn't do anything special...just burned them along grasslines and right down the pipe of some of the smaller channels ( 8 ft or less) I could find. The fish closer to 3 lbs would come up off the bottom of the smaller channels to smack the baits. It was a good day for crankbait confidence.
