The rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is a species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North America. One of the United States greatest rainbow trout fisheries is the Sacramento River rainbow trout fishing near Redding California. This year round trout fishery is home to best light tackle and fly fishing trout fishing around and double digit wild rainbow trout hook ups are the norm. This is also where Sacramento River trout fishing guide Dave Jacobs calls home and the best trout fishing takes place right in downtown Redding! The Lower Sacramento River near Redding, California host average wild rainbow trout sizes of 16 inches with many trout hooked and released over 20 inches every day of the year.

The lower Sacramento Rivers controlled flows and healthy cold water make it the year round trout fishery that is famed for. These are fat, hard fighting bows matched perfectly for fishing with light tackle, weather it be conventional or on the fly!
