Striped bass fishing report 5/7

 San Joaquin Striper double!

San Joaquin Striper double!

Striped bass fishing remains solid from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta up into the Feather and Sacramento Rivers near Yuba City and Colusa.  Although my Striper season has come to an end, great fishing will surely continue through May and into June.  With the upper sections of the rivers clearing up a lot, drifting live minnows will continue to be a top producer.  Down in the delta, trolling deep diving plugs has become a standard technique this spring.  

 Great day in the Delta with this group.  They landed and released double digit keepers and shakers, but kept some limits for fish taco's!

Flows on both the Feather and Sacramento Rivers are scheduled to go up again so make sure you do your homework before heading out.  With that being said, the Sacramento River side of the delta will once again see high flows and turbidity making fishing tough.  Concentrate your delta efforts on the San Joaquin side and your Striper fishing efforts will continue to pay off.
