I just got back from a week of fishing on the Sacramento and Feather Rivers for Stripers and it went great! This is a really fun fishery and is unlike anything we do here on the coast. A typical day of Striper fishing includes alot of bent rods, warm weather and beautiful fish! Stripers are also phenomenal eaters. Kinda like a more moist halibut, with firm and sweet white meat. Most fish here average 3 to 5lbs and its not uncommon to catch 30-40 of the little buggers in a day. Plus, there are a enough fish over the 10lb mark to keep things interesting.
I may be going back this coming weekend for a couple of trips, so if anyone would like to add Friday or Monday (or even next Tuesday) I would love to get you aboard! By the way, my new 21' Willie Boat Classic is an unbelievable boat! It's quite possibly the prettiest boat on the river, and more importantly, its a fishing machine!
