|Well I have pretty much been fishing the delta for the last month and a half. I've been in the surf a couple times for zero, but the swell was been not good for the fly. It just started coming and staying down. I will say that this has been a good year for the beach so far, just really difficult with a fly. I'll be in the surf trying to get one surf striper before I go to Baja, all next week :). BTW - I hate those fricking party boats in the bay!! HATE THEM! They kill every god damn striper they catch, but that's another post all together.|
As for the Delta, water temps are around 73-75, and there are tons of baby stripers, but I've been trying to get the LMB dialed in on top water, and a little subsurface. It's way different then striper fishing. I've become a major TW junkie. My best has been 5pds on TW, and a bunch of smaller ones. The funny thing is my biggest came from right next to my dock, go figure.
I've received some really good TW help from a couple of the guru's. Thanks Charlie, Ben, and a couple others. The fly that I really love using is the bubbleicious frog, they can not resist that thing, and regular poppers are working great too. I'm kinda living on the delta now, so I figured I'll get the place close to home ( second home ) dialed in. I want to get a DD LMB :)
I haven't done many post since that stripers tapered off and I figured I share what's been up with the delta lately.
Here's a couple pic's
