Al Brown's Guide Service Fishing Report

Wednesday, February 02, 2011


The Trout fishing on the Lower Sacramento River in the Redding area has been very good the past month for fly fishermen using small nymphs under a indicator ,spin fishermen are drifting worms or crickets. Plug fishermen are using hot shots or flat fish and doing very well. The flows are very low right now. Most of the Wild Rainbow trout we have been catching are 12 to 24 inches long and weigh 1 lbs. to 6 lbs. they are all very hard fighting fish large or small. Steelhead fishing has picked up a bit also we hooked 2 on our last trip out. We practice catch and release on the Sac.
Shasta Lake fishing has been good for Bass or Trout . For Trout fishing try trolling lures in silver /blue, Red /gold colors or shad imitations . For Bass fishing try 40 to 90 feet deep with minnows, Senkos or plastic worms shaky head or tubes in crawdad colors or water Mellon.
