Most folks launch at the main ramp near the San Luis Creek Campground. Be sure to read the invasive species rules & arrive with a very dry & clean boat. They are strongly enforced at both San Luis & the forebay.

Clousers on a full sinking line is usually the way to go, rather than a sink tip. I would also bring a 2nd rod rigged with floating line & a gurgler. Working top water over weed beds can be very fun.

Good luck!
Bill

I launch down by the towers. The first dirt road that goes to the right after you come in the park. But get inspected first.

I use a 5 weight for the little guys in the weeds when I can't get the big ones to bite.
So long and thanks for all the fish!!!

I picked up some eye dumbells to tie up some more clousers so once I get my topwater keeper on a spook, I am going back to chasing boils with tthe fly rod. Just too much fun!

My old boss was an avid fly fisherman and used to spend 6 months out of the year guiding for stripers on the Delta. I went out with him in the delta and had a great time catching stripers using various streamers, poppers, clousers, etc. We used shooting heads to gain some distance and depth.

If you want some good advice, hit up Fish First in Albany. Old boss used to co-own the shop, not sure if he still does.

Always take pointers! I used to be a die hard fly guy, kids kind of made me go to more kid friendly methods, like powerbait lol

A lot of good tips here, sounds like I need to throw a full sinking line on my empty spool and hit the water!  I was too late on the draw for simply fishing so this might be what I end up doing this weekend.
