The fish kept me humble, the boat kept me poor, and this site kept me honest; yep… fishing is a lot like religion!
The fishing trips are over, the boat is sold and… well, I’ve taken up reclining as my new hobby. Still, I’ll keep this site up and running for the sake of the stories. Even though I’ve posted only one new trip since March, the site still gets 200 – 300 hits per week by folks who like to read about those grand ol’ fishing adventures. Keep coming back – I love to see that the site is still interesting!

~ All about fishin’ the California Delta and foothill lakes ~
Welcome to my homepage where I have posted stories of my fishing trips for several years. My greatest pleasure is fishing for the mighty sturgeon on the California Delta. During the summer months when the wind seems to never cease on my beloved delta, I fish foothill lakes for striper and trout near my home in the San Joaquin Valley of California. In recent years, salmon fishing has been closed on the delta – but now California has re-opened the salmon season, so I have several salmon stories of this year’s salmon chase!

I hope that you enjoy your visit and will return often. Feel free to leave comments or questions as you peruse the pages and I’ll do my best to respond. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find my stories, photos and videos entertaining. I sure have a good time living them and then writing about them.
During these retirement years, fishing, boating and writing are among my favorite pastimes. Mom was right… I didn’t amount to much!
