DELTA, Sacramento Side — The emergency sturgeon regulations went into effect on November 17, but the sturgeon don’t seem to know as the bite has been phenomenal in Suisun Bay. Cured roe is the bait of choice, and anglers have been catching and releasing as many as 17 diamondbacks per outing when the tides are right. Striped bass are here now with the majority of linesides from Rio Vista to Collinsville, but they are moving up into the system every day. This is prime time for soaking fresh shad on the anchor but casting shad-patterned swimbaits on the flats or breaks along with trolling are also effective. Drifting live mudsuckers or bluegill is another option. Crappie are starting to school up in the north Delta.
