Oct. 20-26: Delta Fishing Report

by ECT

Dan’s Delta Outdoors TOC weekend is here! The top 25 Pro teams on the River will be competing out of Russo’s Marina Saturday and Sunday!


Fall Stripers and Salmon Stacked


Still the salmon bite remains strong as cooler evening temps take hold. The bite in the area just improved all week. Salmon anglers are seeing success, a few fishing finally started getting solid reports of success from  Salmon searching anglers with Capt Stan’s Spinners leading the way. Water temperatures have dropped with the cooler evenings. Many anglers to the west are seeing more salmon daily… getting close.  Capt. Stan Spinners are the best bet for those who want to try.


Walnut Grove
Continuing solid Salmon numbers with many Great Scores reported Capt. Stan Spinners and Yozuri’s getting mentioned. Best area has been Courtland to Walnut grove.   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.. Red Eye Shad and small shad patterned plastics are the top choices here as well. Small swimbaits are scoring Largemouth and Smallmouth in the Meadows.


Discovery Bay
More Stripers now starting to group up in the Marina side.  Bubba Shad are great striper bets.  Stripers and Black Bass are also eating Zara Spooks and Ima Skimmer Grande’s really well. Brabec Double Buzz and Poppers getting mentioned often. Jig bite on points is also good.

Frank’s Tract
It’s no secret what a little current can do. Walking baits are great topwater options while small swim baits and swim jigs get the mention. We found plenty of Stripers and Black Bass with Pencil Poppers, Hair Jigs, Bubba Shad Lot of Stripes on Old River Flats.


West Delta
Salmon success stories still abound. Slime Rockets best on the incoming tide with Mepp’s Flying C’s in Pittsburgh and Humphries areas. More Anglers in search of stripers are finding solid numbers of keeper stripers from both boat and bank. Most of the nice stripers coming soaking Shad. Antioch Pier scored stripers to47 inches this week.  Shad is top offering. The West as in Honker Bay to the Broad Slough plug casting is getting fish when wind cooperates. Go On Top with Cedar Plugs, during the day go old school with Hair Jigs or Spro in open water White/Dark Green and White/Blue best this week .   Bass Bite stays solid in the Break and surrounding cuts. Cranking  Strike Square bills in bait fish patterns and spinnerbaits is key.
