Sacramento River trout fishing guide 03-23-2016 Dave Jacobs March 23, 2016 Recent Catches Sacramento River trout fishing guide 03-23-2016. The Sacramento River for the most part has been blown out due to heavy rains that have filled Shasta Lake to just under 23 feet from cresting. The high flows are needed now to leave room in Shasta Lake for any future runoff. The downtown Redding section of river has fished this past week very well for anglers side drifting small egg color combos in the very limited softer water. The upper 5.5 miles of Sacramento River will close to all fishing after April 1, 2016 to protect any adult spawning winter run chinook salmon. The closure is from the highway 44 bridge upriver to the base of Keswick Dam. Trout fishing is still very good blow the closed section of river and should drop and clear very soon as reported by Sacramento River trout fishing guide Dave Jacobs. Pictured is just one of the many very large rainbow trout we have caught and released this week in the high flows on the Sacramento River. Guide Dave Jacobs is available both weekdays and weekends for large and small groups that would like to trout fish on the Sacramento River near Redding, California.
