Striper And Sturgeon Anglers Not Deterred By Muddy Water

Rain and muddy water didn't stop anglers from landing fish this week, as action only improved for both sturgeon and striped bass in the area.

Shad and pile worms were the suggestion from the staff at Rio Vista Bait and Tackle this week, with Jason Sheppard sending anglers to Decker and Sherman Islands to bait fish striped bass.

"We had one fish come from a local angler around 25 pounds, and a lot of schoolie sized fish have been coming in."

Alan Fong, manager at Fisherman's Warehouse in Sacramento, also related to schoolie sized fish, both around Cache Slough to the north of Rio Vista, and around the San Joaquin River.

"White fish traps and some topwater are working good. If you're going to fish up north, try the outgoing tide," he tipped. "The water gets clearer when you fish that tide."

Sturgeon fishing continues to roll strong, with Sheppard sending anglers to Collinsville and Suisun Bay. To the north, anglers were doing fair. "A lot of the fish are being caught down south, but a few are coming out of Liberty Island around Cache and Shag Sloughs," he tipped.
