> What they’re saying: “The fish are starting to transition into their fall patterns, which could make the fishing a little bit tougher than usual,” said 2015 Cal Delta Western Series winner Wade Curtiss. “Most guys will either hunker down and fish one area all day – flooded islands like Franks Tract, Mandeville or Mildred – or they’ll run the tide. I think we’ll see a lot of topwater baits, reaction baits – swimbaits, swimjigs, crankbaits – and a lot of flipping.A lot of bigger bites will come punching, too."
