Sacramento salmon fishing.

The Sacramento salmon fishing report is courtesy of Sacramento River fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  With larger schools of king salmon in the Sacramento River this week there are more opportunities to catch large Sacramento River king salmon.  Depending on which schools of salmon you choose to work over on any given day seems to dictate if the bite will be good or just fair.  There are some good sized schools in different locations on the Sacramento River but constant boat pressure has put the salmon bite down with all of the activity.  There are some quieter holes to fish some days and success is very obvious as you get many more opportunities at catching these large king salmon compared to one or two chances in the heavily fished holes.  The kings that have been coming in are very fresh compared to past seasons.  There are some older dark kings mixed in as you fish up higher near the Coleman Fish Hatchery.  There are still many kings salmon being hooked on sardine wrapped KF-16 Brad’s Killer Fish plugs in various color combos this week.  Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs reports that the salmon fishing looks to continue right through October.  The new Late Fall Sacramento River king salmon are traditionally around in better numbers in November and December.  The Sacramento River king salmon season will remain open to salmon fishing through December 16th.
