Chris Linnet from Corning, Ca. with one of todays chrome Sacramento River king salmon. These salmon are hard fighting and great to catch on perfectly matched light tackle. Salmon average 18 to 24 pounds with the occasional big king over 30 pounds right now. Many king salmon are on their way up the Sacramento River as August and September are very good times to come damon fishing on the Sacramento River. We are now fishing everyday from the Barge Hole through Hamilton City.
