Default delta fishing

It didn't take long for the Delta to clear up after the storm last week. Fishing is still a little tough. The water has gotten very clear again and the water temperature is in the low 60's and high 50's.
There is still a top water bite and usually it's a good one that hits, don't forget to change out your hooks the big ones are straightening the hooks out. The jig bite has picked up and so has the drop shot. Jig colors are brown/orange, black/blue and brown/pumpkin with green flake. The Drop Shot is MMII, Folkestad Special and Oxblood red flake, using 8 to 10lb fluorocarbon line. Punching grass beds with current on them has produced some large fish, again black and blue has been the color for that.
The fish are moving into their fall pattern. Many large fish are on points with current feeding up, when you find one there are more. One of the teams that fished the Hook Tournament fished one point all day caught 20 plus fish and got a check. There a lot of little fish in the grass along the rock walls. You can catch fish on crank baits but it is not the hot bait yet.
There is not much happening in the West Delta (Sherman,Big Break) The North and Middle seem to be producing more fish (Connection,Little Potato and Old River).
The fish are moving with the tide in and out. The best pattern to fish for larger fish is to find a flat with weed beds or hyecin and punch with black and Blue, brown and green pumpkin with green flake skirts. The best time is on a high incoming tide the fish are moving out of deep water into these areas and feeding, as the tide is moving out the fish are moving back into the deep water.

The Hook Line & Sinker has the new Top Shelf Swim baits and all the Bub Tosh punching skirts and hooks. Stop or call 925-625-2441 to get yours.

Great report Gene! I had to bail on The Hook yesterday so I didnt to attend but I am soooo down for the next one.

[B][size=10pt]Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the m
