Sacramento River salmon fishing guide.

Sacramento Rier salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs reports slower salmon fishing for the last couple of days.  Even though we have been fortunate to keep posting pictures of fresh Sacramento River king salmon,  we are working very hard for every bite we get.  Being on the river seven days a week I can assure you many other fishermen are struggling as well everyday.   The king salmon have moved through the lower Sacramento River and there seems to be a break in the steady salmon fishing many are used during this part of the season.  Full time guides on the water seven days a week are still able to manage a hook up or two per day but it is critical that they capitalize on those chances as they are far and few between.  The salmon fishing reports in the ocean are still coming in as very good salmon fishing, however the Sacramento River king salmon have yet to make their upriver migration.  September and October are looking to be the best two months of salmon fishing on the Sacramento River.  Click here for more current Sacramento River salmon fishing reports.

Feather River salmon fishing.

Feather River salmon fishing seems to be the place to be this past week with better salmon fishing happening there now.  Both the boats and the bank salmon fishing has been improving over the poor fishing reports coming off the Sacramento River lately.  The Feather River has had a very good release of water from Oroville Dam and with the last full moon and higher flows, king salmon are making their presence known on the Feather near Oroville.  Popular salmon fishing gathering spots like the Outlet Hole have seen some very nice salmon landed lately.  The Feather River is looking to be the place to be over the Sacramento River so far this season.
