Snug Harbor in the Sacramento River Delta

About the delta

About the most amazing... California Delta,
and the Historic North Delta Region

The Delta region consists of the lands and waterways between the San Francisco Bay and the Sierra Mountains.  There are over 1,000 miles of waterways to explore, and even more miles of “asphalt sloughs” to use to sample the delights of the Delta.  There are 52 large islands, all connected by bridges and ferries.  And uncountable small islands which make great mooring hide-aways.

 

There are at least 250 unique restaurants, many marinas and RV parks, museums, golf courses and lots of little specialty shops within the region.  Wild life include beaver, muskrats, rabbits, over 100 species of birds, fish such as bass, stripers, sturgeon, salmon, catfish and blue gill.  

 

Expect very pleasant spring and fall, and warmer summers, between 80 to 98 degrees from June thru September.  The favorite months for locals are the fall month, September, October and November.  For sports boaters, favorite months are May, June, July and August.  Fishing is always good, but at its best October, November, December, depending on the weather conditions.  Late spring can be especially good, too.
