Sacramento River salmon fishing tips and techniques.

Many more king salmon can be caught if some of these Sacramento River salmon fishing tips and techniques are followed.  There are a variety of different techniques to be used on the Sacramento River while targeting these Fall run king salmon.  Back bouncing roe/puffball combos, side drifting, back bouncing wrapped plugs, boondoggling, bobber fishing are just a few different techniques that can be used to catch the Sacramento River king salmon on any given day from July through December.  Recently the two top producing techniques have been dragging or boondoggling roe/puffball combos or back bouncing wrapped plugs.  There are many different plugs to choose from.  Weather your a fan of the Kwikfish, Flatfish or the KillerFish plugs, choosing the right color and size can be key to getting bit on a regular basis.  One of the best bets will always be a correctly tuned fresh sardine wrapped plug of your choice, that is when your plug is most likely to get bit.  So don’t be lazy, cut off and replace your plug with a fresh, oily/bloody sardine fillet on every pass.  You will definitely see more strikes from these Sacramento River king salmon.  There will be more Sacramento River salmon fishing tips and techniques here in Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service’s fishing reports throughout the season.
