Striped bass season is in full swing, and although we're not running client trips just yet, we're looking at the weeks ahead to be very productive on the Sacramento River.  Captain Jeff Brady has some dates available in May and he's been catching some nice Striped bass every trip.  He's primarily drifting minnows and landing Striped bass to ten pounds.  The consensus this year has leaned towards bigger fish and we got to experience some of those great fish this past week.  Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks!  Thank you!
