Sturgeon will feed on the bottom. Cut bait is best for them. If you catch some shad, you can save it for bait for the Sturgeon and the Stripers.
Stripers will hit up and down the thermocline.
Chrome Domes (Steelhead) and Trout will hit best around the eddies in the river. Salmon will be in the same areas but near the bottom.
If you have a flyswatter, fishing will be off the chain with the Chrome domes, trout and Salmon. 5wt with sinking tip and tapered 4lb leader.
If you decide to venture out a bit, Watts Ave bridge used to be one of my favorite hotspots. Between Howe ave and Watts Ave are some of the best holding pockets. That will take you away from the Delta but put you into some of the better Trout and Salmon waters.
The Sacramento river is best if you want Striped Bass. The Stripers can range from 10 to 50lbs so dress accordingly.
Bass are toys. Gills and Trout are food.
There is a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an Idiot

Current Moon Phase Tide Reports
Too early for shad. That will be in May.
Might be some late steelhead still up in the American River. But salmon are pretty much done and gone.
A lot will depend on the flows and the clarity.
