Sacramento River trout fishing guide June 16, 2016.

Trout fishing on the Sacramento River from Redding downriver through Red Bluff has remained very good for wild rainbow trout one to three pounds this past week.  With increased flows from Keswick Dam near Redding and the recent way weather in Northern California, wild rainbow trout are being hooked and released in the double digits daily.  Sacramento River trout fishing guide Dave Jacobs reports best bets have been side drifting small egg colored glo bug combos from both the drift boats and jet boats.  The action has been very good for both fly fishermen and conventional fishermen this week with several trout over the 20 inch mark being caught.  Hotter weather is forecasted to return after this upcoming weekend and anglers interested in giving this seasons Sacramento River shad fishing a try should enjoy much better shad fishing in June and July.  The Sacramento River from the Highway 44 bridge up to Keswick Dam will officially re open on August 1st. Also, anglers are gearing up for the years official Sacramento River salmon fishing opener on July 16th below the Red Bluff Diversion Dam.
