California Delta:

DELTA, Sacramento Side — The Sacramento River side broke out for striped bass over the weekend as the linesides are making a beeline into the upper Sacramento, Feather, and American Rivers. Trollers and those drifting live bait found excellent action after Saturday’s storm along the West Bank. More linesides are on their way, and the bass should be starting to head back to the cooler waters of San Francisco Bay after spawning upriver. Largemouth bass fishing remains best in the north Delta near Liberty Island as the bass are hugging the shallows. Sea lions have interrupted the largemouth bass spawn by feeding heavily on the vulnerable fish in the shallows. The Delta is loaded with sea lions currently. Sturgeon action remains outstanding although few boats are trying, but the diamondbacks remain kegged up in Suisun Bay. The striped bass action should last until the summer Delta Doldrums arrive by mid-June.
