Sacramento River fishing report 11-27-2015.

The new Late Fall Sacramento River salmon are showing now on the Sacramento River.  These hard fighting, chrome bright salmon are running on average this week from 10 to 22 pounds. We have not seen any large 30 to 40 plus pound salmon come in yet, but this is the time of year to catch one of the largest king salmon of the season.  There are also small groups of both hatchery and wild steelhead mixed in while salmon fishing on the Sacramento River from 2 to 6 pounds.  All salmon are being caught on large sardine wrapped plugs like the Brads KF-16 Killerfish and all steelhead are coming in on drifted roe/puffball combos.  Salmon fishing will only improve straight up to the salmon fishing closure at the end of the fishing day on December 16th.

Trinity River steelhead fishing report.

Currently the flows on the Trinity River are at their lowest of 300 cfs from Lewiston.  There are large groups of steelhead holding throughout the Trinity from Lewiston down through Del Loma.  The Trinity has been very crowded at this time with both driftboat and bank fishermen making it difficult to cover a lot of holding water.  Both conventional spin and fly fishermen are doing well catching wild or hatchery steelhead 3 to 6 pounds.
