Area off West Island and Broad Slough are the Hot Spots
by California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau
Presently, the sturgeon and striped bass fishing has had its up and downs due to the fluctuating water temperatures. Reports from field scouts state that there are plenty of sturgeon stacked up at various locations, but getting them to bite your bait presentation mainly salon roe and eel strips. The striped bass have been limited to strictly live bait or cut bait with scent, and the majority of them are smaller fish in the 18 to 24 inch range. Although, there is a select group using live spilt tails that are hooking and landing some larger fish at the Firing Line off Middle Grounds. The recent high northerly winds have been keeping most off the water lately. It has been determined that during the warmer spring months the bites should be nothing short of spectacular. The area off West Island and Broad Slough have been the hot spots lately for striped bass, while sturgeon are showing at Pittsburg and Montezuma Slough.
