Delta Re­port:

The tough bite con­tin­ues for a lot of bass an­glers. Very few big fish are be­ing caught right now. Num­bers of smaller large­mouth bass seem to be hold­ing on the out­side edges of weed lines and are bit­ing on Senkos and crankbaits. Striped bass are start­ing to show up for those trolling the main chan­nel with bro­ken back rebels. An­glers fish­ing for salmon are hav­ing mixed re­sults while trolling Sil­ver­ton’s north of the Rio Vista Bridge. Bank fish­er­men are do­ing well while fish­ing for bluegill and cat­fish while us­ing live worms and clams.

New Melones Lake:

There are few trout be­ing caught right now on the lake. The few that are be­ing caught are of great size. Re­cently an an­gler caught a trout that weighed over eight pounds while trolling at 100 feet deep while us­ing a Crip­plure. As the tem­per­a­ture con­tin­ues to drop, the bite should start im­prov­ing. Bass fish­ing re­mains tough for a lot of an­glers right now. For some rea­son the bass are want­ing baits that are barely mov­ing. Some of the bet­ter bites are com­ing from an­glers fish­ing Senko’s and jigs while adding very lit­tle move­ment to the bait.
