Sacramento salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs September 28, 2015 Sacramento River fishing reports Sacramento salmon fishing guide. The salmon fishing on the Sacramento River has been very steady lately with just one slower day on Sunday September 27th with the weeks slowest salmon fishing day. The kings are still coming in daily and new arriving kings are being caught from Anderson Balls Ferry downriver through Chico, Ca. The best way to get the big Sacramento River kings has been back bouncing large sardine wrapped plugs like the Brad’s KF-16 sized lures. Back bouncing or drifting roe/puffball combos have also been bringing Sacramento River salmon 16 to 21 pounds. The run looks to be building late this month with good fishing in October as more and more kings move upriver. Some fantastic rainbow trout fishing is also on deck as the king salmon begin to spawn in October in the upper river near Anderson and Redding. Anglers can expect the years best Sacramento River trout fishing in October and early November as reported by Sacramento River steelhead fishing guide Dave Jacobs.
