    Up in the Sacramento Metro Garcia Bend area my preference is to troll downstream with the outgoing tide.

    Tonight I kept getting what I call fish tank looking clumps of greenery on my lines. Most of the time it’s witches hair type stuff with black mud mixed in? Anyone else know what I’m talking about? I even increased my dropper length tonight to about 44” to see if that would help

    Ive noticed that too. I’ve recently been trying some cut plugs but they keep getting fouled up or junk will fill the little hole the line goes through. Normal? I switch to spinners and my spreader will catch the junk but the spinner remains clean. Just my unscientific observation over the last week

    I said tough, not impossible.

    You have your experience, I have mine. Seems both of us are successful with what we both believe in.

    You can, and many people do, catch fish on an outgoing tide. My suggestion, if you fish an outgoing tide, make sure the high and low tide levels are not a huge difference from each other (1st quarter/last quarter). Trying to troll upriver during a big outgoing tide (new/full moon) is tough.

    Key concept: know the tides for the area you are fishing and plan accordingly. https://tides4fishing.com/us/california
    Hmmmm I’ve done very well going up river on a full moon outgoing tide. In fact 90% of my fish have come going up river versus down.
