Fly Fishing in California Delta
California Delta fly fishing is becoming more and more popular, and for all the right reasons. With well over a 1,000 miles of productive waters to explore, this fishery has a lot to offer passionate fly rodders looking for their next angling challenge.
What to Catch
The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is the fourth largest estuary in America, as well as one of the most prolific ones. Fly anglers come here from all over the country to target a variety of species, and Striped Bass is the most coveted one of all. Using a floating line and topwater flies is a must to attract these fish.
The appeal of catching a Striper on a fly lies in the fact that it’s a very unique fight to experience, especially if you hook a lunker, and there’s a good chance of that. These fish are relentless fighters and getting them into the boat will be both a feat and an incredibly rewarding experience.
Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass are in the cards as well, though they rarely reach the impressive size of Stripers (in the 2–50 lb range). This doesn’t mean that they are any less fun to catch. Sight fishing for Carp is another favorite of fly fishermen, and summer months are the time to do it.
What to Expect
There are guides who specialize in fly fishing the California Delta and hitting the water with them at the helm is a game changer. You can book a full day trip for about $400–$450 per person, and have a boat, an expert captain, and fly fishing gear at your disposal.
Bear in mind that not all charters have fly fishing equipment on board, so it could be up to you to bring your own – make sure to double-check with the captain. The same goes for your fishing license, drinks, food, and sunscreen. When you’re all geared up, the Delta is yours for the taking.
