CoolTrout Fishing

The Sacramento River has been fishing well between storms. The winter months are the hardest to fish do to the weather but there are some big fish to be caught ,Trout fishing is good year round on the Sacramento river. Looking forward to spring and some warm weather to fish in. What are they biting fly’s, plugs and bugs. Shasta lake Bass fishing is starting to pick up but the Bass fishing can be good one day bad the next just like the river it all depend on the weather try using plastic worms, jigs, hard baits, live bait . The Bass are in 3 feet of water to 30 feet deep.

Steelhead Green

The Sacramento River has been on and off do to the rains mudding up the river. It is taking about 4 days for the river to clear up enough to go fishing but when the waters clears to a Steelhead Green color the best area to try for a Wild Rainbow Trout or Wild Steelhead will be the area from Redding to Anderson. This section of river clears upthe quickest. Flows are very low just over 3,000 cfs. Water temp. about 48 deg. If you like using waders to fish now is the time to go. What are they biting Fly’s, Bugs and Plugs .
