Sac. River flood 2017

Sacramento River fishing report. The Sacramento River is at flood stage right now so all fishing trips are on hold. The river flows out of Keswick dam are 79,000 cfs. That will wash all the weeds down river. When the river flows get back down to 16,000 and the river clears up it will be time to go fishing.
The Striper fishing should be good this year. High river water years are usually the best times for Striper fishing the Sac. River.
Book your trip early for the best available day. Call 530-357-2667

When it comes down to 16,000 cfs. It is safe to go out fishing again. Compared to last year at this time the flows were about 3500 cfs.

Steelhead Dec.2016

Sacramento River trout fishing is good on days that the river is not to muddy and it only takes a couple days for the river to clear after a storm. Jim and Rick fished with me last week and landed about 15 wild Rainbow Trout and 2 Steelhead that were about 3 lbs.
What are they biting on? Fly’s, Plugs or Bugs. We practice catch and release on the Sacramento River for the Wild Rainbows.

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.

October Salmon 2016

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.

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.
