Sacramento River fishing report Feb 14, 2016 Dave Jacobs February 14, 2016 Sacramento River fishing reports Sacramento River fishing report Feb 14, 2016. With great weather and good flows on the Sacramento River, there are a couple of options for fishing as late Winter and early Spring approaches. The upper Sacramento River near downtown Redding is fishing well for wild rainbow trout. Both conventional spin and fly fishermen are doing well for wild bows’ one to three pounds from downtown Redding downriver through Anderson as reported by Sacramento River trout fishing guide Dave Jacobs. Farther downriver below Princeton, the early sturgeon fishing is happening all the way towards Verona. There are white sturgeon in the Sacramento River now with more sturgeon moving upriver from the bay/delta to the spawning grounds daily. The Sacramento River sturgeon fishing will peak in March and wind down in April as the Spring striper run begins to show.
