Sacramento River salmon fishing report 12-13-2015.

With just a few days left in the 2015 Sacramento River salmon fishing season, there looks to be limited salmon fishing opportunities with the recent rains in Northern California.  The Sacramento River is dropping at the time of this report but is forecasted to make another large rise later tonight.  Up until now, there has been decent salmon fishing throughout the Sacramento River for fresh late Fall kings averaging 20 to 35 pounds with a few jack salmon mixed in.  The best bets have been large sardine wrapped lures like the Brad’s KF-16 Killerfish lures back bounced from the powerboats from Anderson Balls Ferry downriver to Knights Landing.  The salmon season will officially close at the end of the fishing day on December 16th as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.

Trinity River steelhead fishing report.

The steelhead fishing on the Trinity River has been going very well for steelhead averaging 3 to 6 pounds from Lewiston downriver through Junction City.  Both fly and conventional spin fishermen have been doing well from both a driftboat and the bank as reported by Trinity River fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  Side drifting roe/puffball combos with a bobber or back trolling small hot shot and maglip lures are working best now. The flows on the Trinity too have risen but have now dropped and may rise again this afternoon with the arrival of this most recent storm.

Guide Dave Jacobs will be available for fully guided winter steelhead fishing trips from late December through February on the Smith, Chetco and upper and lower Trinity Rivers.  We also offer fully guided sturgeon and striper fishing trips in the bay/delta throughout the winter.  Call guide Dave Jacobs for all  the details on these winter fishing trips at 1 (530) 646-9110.
