Sacramento River salmon fishing trips Dave Jacobs September 19, 2014 Recent Catches Sacramento River salmon fishing trips. Salmon fishing continues to be excellent for king salmon 16 to 22 pounds. Some salmon are tipping the scales at over 30 pounds! Sardine wrapped lures like the Brad’s kf-16 killifish are all it takes to bring in the big ones, like Michelle Kline’s Sacramento River salmon pictured here. Michelle landed her limit this week with guide Kenny Turner below Woodson Bridge on the Sacramento River. This salmon run will continue well into October and the new Late Fall king salmon run will start on November 1st and go through December 16th.
