Episode Show Notes

Published March 9th, 2020


We chat with our good friend Maury Hatch. Maury is one of the top guides on the California Delta, with over 30 years of experience behind him.

In this episode, we discuss the fishing outlook for the spring/early summer season, which to no one’s surprise is looking great after this year’s “false spring”.

We also dive deep into the history of striped bass on the CA Delta, ending with some interesting hindsight on the newly proposed regulation changes.

Lastly, Maury gives us the A-Z rundown of the Costa Bass N’ Fly Tournament that he’s helped organize since 2016. He’ll discuss the history, logistics & planning of this hugely popular bass (largemouth) event. Not to mention the SWAG bags everyone goes home with!
