There's been several promising reports of good bass fishing on Delta
oxbows lately! Lots of fish in the one to two pound range are being
caught, and these fish seem fat and healthy, which is encouraging to see
since bass fishing has been below average in the oxbows for the past
couple of years. If you haven't tried them in a while, now is the time
to head back to an oxbow and do some bass fishing! At Ferguson, try using a
crankbaits or spinnerbaits near rocky banks along the eastern shore, or through the stump fields in the north of the lake.
For bream, try fishing along the fishing piers and rip rap banks along the eastern shoreline north of the ramps. Crickets or red worms are usually the best choices for bait.
The best bet for crappie during this time of year is trolling through deeper water with jigs, minnows, or crankbaits.
For catfish, try fishing trotlines baited with nightcrawlers or cut bait along mudflats or around the grain elevators, especially those that area actively loading grain, or fish deeper water tightlining with a rod and reel with the same baits or chicken livers. _______________________________________________________________________
