    Default Question for jet boaters in the Sacramento area

    I flew into Sacramento this weekend for a wedding. Drove down to Galt and Lodi. It was absolutely beautiful. After seeing the area I am going to take the boat back up there in the spring. How is the delta for jet boats? How far is the delta from Galt? Or is there a better place to go boating? Any info would be great.

    Default Be prepared...

    For a whole bunch of input!
    I'm sure you look up the Delta on a google image/map search, but...
    We've got eleven hundred miles of navigable waterways between upper Sacto. to the Bay. We've got year round marinas and public launch ramps. Most facilities are easily reached by hiway. Check in with the DLB thread site.
    I was in Corona for a wedding on the 10th.

    I have seen 6 foot swells in Franks Track. Got out of that and made it to the Sac River and was in 8 foot stuff. Was a long ride home.

    I'm looking forward to making the trip, after looking at some of the links and web sites. The place looks hugh. A guy could get lost at there.
