The Sacramento River fishing trout & shad report for June 2, 2014 with Sacramento River trout fishing guides Dave Jacobs of Professional Guide Service.  The wild rainbow trout fishing near Redding, CA. and Anderson, CA. is going great on lightweight ultra light spinning gear right now.  We are hooking and releasing double digit trout in the 16 to 20 inch range (one to three pounds) and hooking the occasional several large rainbow trout in the 20 to 25 inch range every morning.  Best bets have been side drifting small glo bugs in various egg color patterns tied by Sacramento River salmon fishing guides Dave Jacobs.  Back trolling small hot shot lures in the #50 and #70 sizes are also working.  One last technique that is good this month is side drifting small gold or silver f-4 kwikfish lures.  These three techniques are catching most of the trout on the Sacramento River every morning.

Later in the morning and early afternoon Sacramento River guide Dave Jacobs has been switching techniques and river locations to target American shad.  The best shad fishing has been as high Red Bluff, CA. all the way downriver through small towns along the Sacramento River like Los Molinos, Corning, Hamilton City, Chico and down to Princeton, CA.  Side drifting small lead head jigs in bright colors tipped with small 1 or 2 inch bright colored curly tailed grubs has worked great on ultra light spin gear.  Early mornings and late evenings are best, but there is very consistent mid day fishing for Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs when moving to different shad holding areas of the Sacramento River.  We have caught shad on both conventional spin gear and fly gear this week.
