Catfish are the best target species this time of year that can help you beat the summer doldrums.  Anchovies, Mackeral and Sardines are good choices here for the whiskerfish. Still waiting as I Looked again for a few anxious Salmon anglers while there were only  a few fishing finally started getting an occasional report of success from  Salmon searching anglers. While the temperatures get ready to heat up again this weekend look for no change in the Salmon bite this week.  Capt Stans are the best bet for those who want to try.

 

Walnut Grove
No Change, Bank anglers Pile worms and cut baits prevail.  Catfish action is getting the most praise, Few Stripes are in the area as anglers recover still around as temperatures return more seasonable in the Walnut Grove area as the trolling bite is OK mostly small fish. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove.    The Sacramento Turning Basin  continues to be decent with stripes caught there by lure tossers. Red Eye Shad  and small shad patterned plastics are the top choices here as well.

 

Discovery Bay
Really while we just had a nice stretch a couple HOT days ahead this next week there is hope for the Frog bite to be decent once again. River2Sea FROGS and Snag Proof frogs getting some explosive strikes. Current and shade are the key. Stay near main river current with Crankbaits Strike King XD 6 and 2.5 square bills. Punching is scoring bass on the main river points. Bass pushing the 4 to 6 mark are showing on occasion.  Jig bite on points is also decent!

 

West Delta
More Anglers in search of stripers are finding a few keepers on occasion from both boat and bank. Most of the nice stripers coming soaking Sardines and Anchovies. Antioch Pier scored stripers to 36 inches this week. From as far west as Honker Bay to the Broad Slough and Antioch pier persistent bait dunkers with Mackeral and Sardines ae finding fun action.   Soon a few Salmon success stories will start come on the incoming tide with Mepp’s Flying C’s . Bass Bite stays solid in the Break and surrounding cuts. Punching get’s the bites the key is staying square to your target and setting hard.
