Stripers Spread Out From Isleton To Collinsville

Windy conditions prevailed on the windmill hill this week, but the big tides brought out anglers in search of both sturgeon and striped bass.

Anglers in search of striped bass were spread out from Isleton to Collinsville this past week, with a bulk of the boaters concentrating on the West Bank of the Sacramento River just below Sandy Beach Park.

According to Jason Sheppard of Rio Vista Bait and Tackle, "Both trolling and bait fishing were working well for the stripers."

"Shallow running plugs are working well for trolling, and for bait you can use sardines, anchovies and pile worms," he tipped.

Sturgeon fishing remained good for anglers, with Sheppard recommending trips upriver to Cache and Shag Slough, or downriver in Collinsville and Suisun Bay.

"Catfish are being caught around Brannan Island in the slowe- moving sloughs and around the Rio Vista shoreline on cut bait," Sheppard recommended.

Anglers in search of a plug bite are recommended to cover lots of water in the San Joaquin, according to Carlo Ramos, owner of Delta Wood Bombers. "Top water, swimbaits and lipless cranks are working well. Concentrate on rocky banks with good current," he tipped.
