Sacramento River salmon fishing report

The salmon fishing on the Sacramento River has been improving daily as new king salmon move into the upper river. There has been good salmon fishing happening now with many more king salmon coming into the nets.  he average size has been 15 to 21 pounds with several very big salmon in the high 20’s and low 30’s.  Top guides like Dave Jacobs of Professional Guide Service have been boating four to six salmon a day with several more opportunities of lost fish.  The best Sacramento River salmon fishing is beginning to get good and will only get better as the run builds in September and October. Best bets this week have been back bouncing roe/puffball combos or sardine wrapped lures like the Brads KF-16 Killerfish lure. Drifting roe/puffball combos have also produced a few king salmon this week on the Sacramento River.

Sacramento River rainbow trout fishing

The best trout fishing of the year is just around the corner as October is without a doubt one of the peak trout fishing months on the Sacramento River. As the Fall king salmon arrive and begin to spawn, hundreds of Sacramento Rainbow trout will be on the bite on egg patterns like the hand tied glo bugs in various egg colors.  Both fly and conventional trout fishermen do very well in October from Redding down towards Red Bluff.  The best bets will be side drifting small egg patterns to match the salmon spawn in October. Anglers can also expect to see some hatchery steelhead mixed in that time of year as well while trout fishing on the Sacramento River.
