Sacramento Delta Fishing Report

Sacramento Delta

by California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau

Delta Striped bass will soon be making an appearance as they begin their annual migration from the salt waters of the bay. Presently the only action is coming out of Whiskey Slough and flooded Mildred Island for Angler's on the drift using live bluegills for bait. Lucky Angler's find a few going 5 to 7 pounds. On the salmon scene the action has been sparse with only a couple of fish coming out of the Old Sacramento River at Vieira's Resort and the Freeport Bridge. The best lures are Silvertron spinners and Mepp's Flying C. Due to warm water conditions place a drop sinker on your terminal gear about 3 feet above your lure for deeper, cooler depths. The salmon are moving through very fast as they attempt to find cooler water temperatures further upstream. A recent bass tournament at Russo's Marina on Bethel Island produced a 5! Fish weight of 19 lbs. for the winning team with an 11 pounder taking big fish honors.
