Fishing Report

Cool weather and some rain has moved the Salmon fishing right along. Capt. Stan Spinners continue to  lead the charge for the trolling anglers. Wow! It’s great to here first time anglers  giving credit to our salmon set-ups! The cooler evening temps have helped the bite tremendously.  Also Cranking Bandit 200 hundred cranks smacking the Smallies

Walnut Grove

Slower  Salmon reports in the area with light rain and temperatures more fall like. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove. Bank anglers using liver’s and cut baits prevail  for those searching for Stripers. The Sacramento Turning Basin is still decent here as there continues to be stripes caught there by lure tossers. Hair jigs and small shad patterns are the top choices here as well.. 

Discovery Bay
Bass pushing the 3 to 4 pounds mark are showing on occasion Prank Poppers and swim jigs are the best for numbers .  Plenty of stripers are in the area as well. Stripes grabbing P-Line Angry Eyes and Savage prey Baits. Stick with the Reaction baits tied on as Crankbaits and blades are scoring bass on the main runway rock walls.

Franks Tract
Striped bass and plenty of bait building in the area. Top Water And swim baits are key for lure tossing anglers. Drifting Bluegill and Minnows are the key for Stripers.  Black Bass Anglers spinnerbaits and swim jigs also work well. 


West Delta
Wow Sturgeon are surging! Many tags filled with Roe and Eel. Broad Slough and Pittsburg PG&E leading the charge. Antioch pier persistent bait dunkers with Anchovies and Sardines are finding fun action. Anglers in search of stripers are finding the bite to be decent but still those who stick with it are getting keepers to 12 pounds on occasion from both boat and bank. Bass Bite stays solid in the Break and surrounding  cuts. Honker Bay to the Broad Slough provide anglers more and more better Stripers each day!


South Delta
Bandit 200 series and spinnerbaits are key for Bass.  Bait Anglers are catching catfish and panfish throughout the area, While cutbaits and livers are tops for the catfish, the panfish respond to worms under bobbers. Those fishing the forebay are seeing stripes on lures and bluegill.
