Water temperatures have dropped with the cooler evenings. Many anglers to the west are seeing more salmon daily… getting close. . Capt Stan’s Spinners are the best bet for those who want to try.  Catfish are the best target species this time of year that can help you beat the summer doldrums’ .  Anchovies, Mackerel and Sardines are good choices here for the whiskerfish.


Walnut Grove Salmon are increasing in numbers Capt Stan’s Spinners and K-14 getting mentioned  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    Cooler evenings have the bite changing combined with the wind have Spinnerbaits and crankbaits doing better daily. Stay near main river current with Crankbaits Strike King XD 6 and 2.5 square bills. Top water stripes are showing in the deep water side.  Topwater Spook Type baits scoring bass on the main river topwater look for birds.  Jig bite on points is also good!


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 Shad. Antioch Pier scored stripers to 30 inches this week. The West as in Honker Bay to the Broad Slough plug casting is getting fish when wind cooperates.  A few more Salmon success stories have come on the incoming tide with Mepp’s Flying C’s in Pittsburgh and Humphries areas .
