UPCOMING EVENT: YETI FLW COLLEGE FISHING - 2019 - Sam Rayburn Reservoir

FISHING LEAGUE WORLDWIDE

National Guard FLW College Fishing Western Conference headed to California Delta

FLW Series anglers cruise to their prime fishing holes on the California Delta shortly after takeoff.

BETHEL ISLAND, Calif. - National Guard FLW College Fishing is headed to the California Delta March 31 for the third of four stops in the Western Conference. Forty college teams will be competing for a top award of $5,000 and a berth in the Western Regional Championship tournament.

"They should have a pretty good bite right now," said FLW Tour pro Cody Meyer of Auburn, Calif. "The bass are going to be in full-on pre-spawn mode, and the fish are moving up and getting ready. The temperature has been pretty stable lately, right around 65 to 70 degrees every day, so it's really starting to warm up.

"I'd target some of the flooded lake areas," Meyer continued. "Frank's Tract, Mildred's Island and some of the major move-up spots where the bass are headed up to spawn. Run a variety of crankbaits, chatterbaits, or a vibrating jig. The Jackall MC/60 and the Jackall Aska Shad are my go-to crankbaits. If that's not working, you can slow down and try a drop-shot rig. There's really not a whole lot of cover to punch right now, but I might try to find some grass to flip as well."

Meyer offered some specific advice for the college anglers.

"Don't get caught up in worrying about the tides too much," he said. "The locals there run the tide so much, and you can really get caught up in the hype. Just get out there and cover a lot of water. Use a crankbait and fish some of the riff-raff levies and structure and really try to locate some fish. Once you locate them, then worry about trying to catch them. You just need to get out there and fish, and that's more important than worrying about the tide."

Anglers will take off from Russo's Marina located at 3995 Willow Road in Bethel Island, Calif., at 7:00 a.m. Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the take off site beginning at 1:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
