Sacramento River salmon fishing report Dave Jacobs July 22, 2014 Sacramento River fishing reports Sacramento River salmon fishing report. Salmon fishing has been going well catching nice sized king salmon in the mid twenty pound class. Back bouncing sardine wrapped Brads Killerfish lures are working best today but the debris fouling your lines has been tough. If your able to keep your plugs clean you will hook kings now on the Sacramento River. There are not a lot of king salmon in the river yet but we were able to put the hook into three kings today up to 25 pounds. Pictured is Larry’s big king on today’s trip, it was 25 pounds caught below the Red Bluff Diversion Dam.
