DELTA, Sacramento Side

Rating - Good   

Monday, May 16 2022
The north Delta continues to be the top location for striped bass and largemouth bass as the fish are in the shallows feeding on crawdads in the weeds. Z-Mans Jackhammer chatterbaits in Red Craw or orange are working best. Other than this, smallmouth bass will start to appear in the Old Sacramento River along with Steamboat Slough in the rocky structure. Most anglers have left the Delta to target other locations. Recreational boating has taken over with the triple-digit temperatures. The popular Brannan Island State Park has been reopened for weekends only until August 28th while the State Parks continues their search for a concessionaire for the site.
