Guided Sacramento River salmon fishing charters.

Today’s Guided Sacramento River salmon fishing charters update is courtesy of Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service.  Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs reports a significant increase in the number of fresh king salmon moving upriver this weekend.  Even though the boat traffic has increased considerably during the Labor Day weekend, those that could find a bit of quiet water on the Sacramento River were rewarded with bright king salmon.  Many new salmon have found their way to our fish box this week with 12 to 24 pound salmon being the average size.  Back bouncing sardine wrapped plugs has been the hot ticket for us running both weighted and weightless plugs.  Knowing where and when to put these fresh sardine wrapped plugs in has been key to multiple daily hook ups and even one double hook up this weekend.

Peak Sacramento River salmon fishing times.

The Peak Sacramento River salmon fishing times are usually all of September and early to mid October.  But with the recent female salmon hooked and landed this holiday weekend, the roe sizes are small and tight indicating that these are late arriving salmon.  These female salmon are very consistent to what we usually see in early to mid August indicating that this fall run of Sacramento River salmon may be several weeks late and the good fishing may go deep into late October.

Fantastic Feather River salmon fishing update.

Many Sacramento River Valley salmon fishermen have abandoned the slow salmon fishing for most of August on the Sacramento River and moved over to the Feather River near Oroville.  The best salmon catching action has been in and around the Feather River Outlet Hole near Oroville.  This week salmon fishing really picked up with some bank fishermen going to the Outlet Hole and getting their two salmon limits daily!  Also, guides and private boaters alike have been scoring fresh king salmon on the Feather with some boats bringing in 3 to 6 king salmon each day to 20 plus pounds!  This is far better salmon fishing than what has been experienced for most of August on the Sacramento River and explains why many salmon fishermen have left Red Bluff and Woodson Bridge in Corning for more productive salmon fishing waters.
