Strippers…wait I mean Stripers!

This past weekend the When The Line Goes Tight team split up on separate fishing adventures. Three of us stayed here in Reno and did a mix of fly fishing on the Truckee River and Pyramid Lake. Both were a little slow going so nothing really to report.

The other half of the team took a trip down to the delta for some striped bass fishing.  Jason and Glenn met up with our fishing buddy Donny and went out on a guide trip with Captain Brad who runs a charter called

They hit the San Joaquin River Delta near Lodi, California and started trolling at sunrise and it wasn’t long until Captain Brad got them into some fish. These Stripers are hard fighting fish and a lot of fun to catch.

At the end of the day the total count was 17 fish to the net and 14 of those came from Glenn and Jason. The biggest fish of the day weighed in at 9 pounds.

If you have a chance this is the time to get out to the delta and if you’re looking for a guide, give Captain Brad a call. He’s a knowledgeable friendly guide that will get you into some hard fighting fish!

Check out some of the photos from the trip, and stay tuned because the team will be out over the next two weekends fishing the TruckeeRiver, PyramidLake, hiking into some Brook Trout territory and hitting the ocean for some Halibut and Striper action!

So until next time, keep those lines tight and knots strong!
