Competitors make their way through boat check at the start of day one.

BETHEL ISLAND, Calif. - FLW College Fishing is headed to the California Delta May 18 for the third of four stops in the Western Conference. Fifty college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Western Conference Invitational tournament.

"I haven't heard of a bait that's not working on the Delta right now," said FLW pro Mike Folkestad of Orange, Calif., who was a 2013 inductee into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame. "Everything's working, frogs, topwater baits, Senkos and worms.

"The fishing is really good. The fish are at the height of their spawn right now, and by the time this tournament starts it will be the tail-end of the spawn to post-spawn fishing. The bass will be up on the banks and hiding in dead-end slews where there is not as much current. It's going to take about 20 pounds or more to do half-decent."

According to Folkestad, the key to winning this tournament is going to be finding larger females. Anglers should have no trouble catching 1 1/2- to 3-pounders for their limit, but they are going to have to bring in at least one 4- to10-pounder to win.

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