The Delta Dayz....Resurrected!!

Post by Spicytuna » Thu Jun 09, 2011 4:55 pm










My time on the Delta usually amounts to a few hours after work a day or two a week. Which in turn is rarely enough for a full TR. And I am getting tired of waiting till Friday's to post up my pics and trips. So I decided to make a thread dedicated to the Delta that I can update with trips and pictures as I go. Its still early in the year and the fishing has been hit and miss but it should finally get consistant once Mother Nature gets her head out of her ass and gives us a real summer. As for right now the whole damn state is blown out so the Delta is the only thing fishable and you know what is alright by me, enjoy.......

So far this guys takes top honor for the year I stuck him Tues night and he flat out kicked my ass

Here are the rest...

Nice report, and I like continued threads, it give you a frame of reference, "Chronicles" though has been really overused, especially since the CWC now occupies a revered place in the Drakes history. Maybe go with "Delta Dialog"

This is the fly I was throwing, the Slider. The only difference is the ones I have are weedless with two mono weed guards coming off. This fly is unreal you can chuck it 6 feet intot he Tules and slowly pullit right out no issues at all.

Those Striped bastards are typically peak in the winter months they jsut got done with the spawn so most are back to Ocean and will be back in the fall, but for me I love topwater LMB's more man. I have chased my share of Stripeys but I always come back to the LMB's.



Red Great suggestion I will work a new one today.

Thanks for the support Guys hopefully this thread will include more Drakians as it goes on.
