Steelhead fishing Fall 2016

Sacramento River Salmon fishing fall run left a lot of questions of where did all the Salmon go? The story I am hearing is a lot of the Sacramento River Salmon that were trucked to the delta 4 years ago got lost returning this year, and went up the Feather River. The late Fall run of King Salmon should start showing up very soon. The fishing reports from the Sac. area are good for Salmon so hopefully the upper section of the Sac.
will be good for Salmon fishing this year.
Steelhead fishing has started picking up and the Trout fishing has been consistent. The last fishing trip out produced 10 Wild Rainbows and 3 Steelhead on a 6 hour trip.
What are they biting on? Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.

Sacramento River Salmon fishing has improved greatly over the past week. Just like last year. The past few trips we have been hooking some very big salmon and landing our fair share but a few have broke off. That’s just big fish. Salmon fishing should be good for the next 6 weeks. Trout fishing is great now and we just caught the first Steelhead of the season. What are they biting on? Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.

The number of salmon fishermen out numbers the days we will have good salmon fishing this year. So for every one to have a Chance at catching a King Salmon we may need to mix fishing party's on some trips. If you want a private trip charter the boat for the day for $540.00
Thank you for understanding.

Salmon Summer 2016

Sacramento River Salmon fishing has not been good yet, But it was like this last year up until the last week of September then all of a sudden the Salmon fishing was great. The month of October will be a great time to catch a King Salmon on the Sac. River.
Trout fishing has been great all summer and is still very good drifting fly’s or pulling lures on the Sac. River. The water is about 55 degrees and a little murky about 5 foot visibility I think that made the fishing better this year. Normally the water is gin clear. We are averaging 15 to 20 trout an an outing with a couple 6 lbs. being caught.

Sacramento River Trout 8 - 2016

Sacramento River Trout fishing is great now. Yes it is hot out there but on the river is is a lot cooler and you can get wet in the 51 degree water any time. Drifting bait or trolling plugs has been producing 15 to 20 fish a trip, 1 to 5 lbs. What are they biting on. Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.
Salmon fishing on the Sac. River should start getting good any time now. Pulling plugs or drifting Roe I am ready to go catch some big fish.

June 2016 Trout

Sacramento River Trout fishing is great now. Ralph and Ron fished with me Saturday and had a great trip catching and releasing about 10 wild Rainbow Trout and having about the same number of fish coming off the hook before they were landed. The Trout are very hard fighting and are acrobatic that can help them shake off the hook easy since we have to use barbless hooks. What are they biting on. Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.

2016 May trout

Sacramento River Trout fishing is great now. The river is on the rise for the irrigation in the valley and that always makes the Trout fishing better. Trout fishing last week with Bruce and Dorthy produced about 20 Trout getting hooked and 10 Trout getting their picture taken all the fish were big about 4 lbs. and 16 inches long. On a 4 hour trip. What are they biting on. Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows. There are a few Shad starting to show up in the Red bluff area. Striper fishing in the Colusa area has slowed down a few of the Stripers have spawned out and are heading back to the delta.

Sacramento River Striper fishing is good NOW. Fished Saturday with Ethan, Tanner, Jake and Greg and landed about 20 Stripers the biggest one was 7 lbs. Everyone was able to take home a limit of fish. Trolling Jumbo Minnows down river worked good that day. Striper fishing should be good for the next 4 weeks. Trout fishing on the Sacramento river in Redding has been good also. Went out last week for a 4 hour trip and landed 10 big Wild Rainbows about 14 inches long, great trip in the evening. What are they biting on. Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.
