Another good day chasing king salmon on the Sacramento River, though there are not many salmon up yet, we are still able to put the hook into a couple today. Morgan Crossman from Corning jumped aboard with Mike Rasmussen and shows off her big salmon today from the Sacramento River. Morgan’s 16 pound king salmon grabbed a sardine wrapped flatfish lure. Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs is available for all size groups this salmon season through December 16th.
