Sacramento River fishing guides Dave Jacobs April 18, 2015 Recent Catches Sacramento River fishing guides. Great fishing and lots of wildlife to see this Spring on the Sacramento River. The Sacramento River striper fishing run is in full swing and the bite has been very good this week for stripers up to 35 pounds! We have boated two 30 plus pound stripers this week as reported by Sacramento River striper fishing guide Dave Jacobs. John Pearl boated a 30 pound striper and Will Butler boated a trophy 35 pound Sacramento River striper with Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service. Pictured is a great shot of some nesting owls on the Sacramento River on a recent striper fishing trip. April is primetime for Sacramento River striper fishing trips.
