Solid striper fishing continues in the Valley rivers and Delta. Though we are on our second full moon of the month, the fish are still hanging around and providing good action. For me lately it's been mostly a swimbait and spoon show. The fishing should hang in there for another week or two in the river and then we'll follow the fish to the Delta.
Shad are showing up in the Sacramento Metro area as well as the lower American and Feather rivers. This is just the beginning and fishing will just get better over the next several weeks.
I'll be doing some shad-striper combo trips starting May 6.
