The striped bass fishing out on the Delta took an upswing this past week, especially off the West Bank of the Sacramento River where anglers took a number of two fish limits while trolling.  The hot bite occurred above Collinsville trolling Yo-Zuri lures, tipped with white plastic worms in 14 feet of water.  Most of the legal fish were in the 5 to 8 pound category.  Several reported hooking and releasing over 27 keepers along with 3 shakers with Yo-Zuri’s in the clown/rainbow trout patterns with the best action taking place on the last of the outgoing tide and the first two hours of the incoming tide.  The lures were presented about 70 to 75 feet behind the boat at four miles per hour.  As a bonus a few salmon to six pounds hitting their lures.  As we approach the month of September, the fishing will get much better out on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta waterways.  At the same time we will see an improvement on the salmon fishing, especially on the Old Sacramento River upstream into the Walnut Grove area.  Reports confirm that a few salmon are being caught off the Freeport Bridge by shoreline anglers tossing Flying “C” spinners while trollers are dragging Brad’s Cut Plugs. Some of the salmon are in the 20 plus pound category.  Stay tuned for periodic updates on the inland salmon fishing.
