Sacramento River fishing report 9-23-2014 Dave Jacobs September 23, 2014 Fishing Report Sacramento River fishing report 9-23-2014. The Sacramento River is just teeming with king salmon this past week from Anderson Balls Ferry downriver through Hamilton City, Ca. The upper reaches near the mouth of Battle Creek has been fishing very well and the lower stretch from Los Molinos down through Hamilton City, Ca. has many kings there as well. You will literally see over 100 salmon roll in one fishing day at this time. The bite has been good on sardine wrapped plugs trolled in deep water the last few days. Pictured is Josh Huck with one of his kings he caught on a sardine wrapped plug with John Pearl recently. Salmon fishing still looks to be great well into October all the way up to the Barge Hole. The new late Fall king salmon run will start in early November and continue into mid December. These are the Sacramento Rivers largest salmon to catch and are very fresh as well.
