FLY FISHING FOR STRIPERS & SHAD
Fly-fishing from an 18 foot roomy Jetcraft boat with an experienced fisherman who has been fly fishing since the 1960′s for both stripers and shad.
Stripers: Mid-September to end of January. Striper fishing in the San Joaquin Delta and other areas as fish availability dictate. The casting of lead-core or fast-sinking shooting heads from the boat; casting experience is recommended. The better the casting ability, the better the success of the trip. Stripers average from 2 to 10 pounds with some larger fish.
Shad: May and June on the Sacramento River. May fishing from the boat in the Sacramento area; casting is not a priority at this time. Good for beginners as well experienced fishermen. June fishing will be done from gravel bars on the Sacramento River between Colusa and Woodson Bridge; casting shooting heads 50 feet and farther is a must. Shad average from 2 to 4 pounds.
