Sacramento River trout fishing report Redding, Ca.

Todays Sacramento River trout fishing report Redding, Ca. is courtesy of Sac River trout fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  It is that time of year to start thinking of heading out in the Redding, Anderson and Red Bluff section of Sacramento River and fishing for wild rainbow trout and steelhead. As the Fall salmon begin to spawn look for great trout and steelhead fishing around those spawns in October. Fly fishing is also going to be spectacular in October. Fly fishermen should look to use egg patterns primarily as well as caddis and mayflies. Best yarn patterns are peachy king and best glow beads are the glow roe and tangerine colors.

Feather River salmon fishing report.

The Feather River continues to be the top producing king salmon river this Fall on the Sacramento River system.  The unbelievable salmon catching action is happening downriver of Oroville, Ca. in and around the Feather River Outlet Hole.  There are daily limits coming into the fish boxes daily with multiple hook ups and double digit king salmon being landed to 19 pounds.  The Feather River king salmon are plentiful but the sheer sizes of king salmon are much smaller than the king salmon coming in on the Sacramento River below Anderson Balls Ferry.  Sardine wrapped plugs, roe, spinners, beads and jigs round out the top choices for Feather River king salmon fishing.  Expect big crowds if heading over to the Feather River this weekend.

Sacramento River king salmon fishing report.

The fall run king salmon fishing has continued to be fair this past week with big three and four year old king salmon making up a majority of the catches.  The water temps are very cold still and very few holes are holding large groups of king salmon.  Some days anglers are getting double digit hook ups and others just single digit salmon hooked.  The salmon are spread out throughout the entire river system from Anderson Balls Ferry downriver to Chico.  This seasons Fall run has been below average to say the least.  Many would agree that the Sacramento River king salmon run has overall been a huge disappointment because of the low catch rates the season.  Late Fall king salmon typically arriver in November and December and are the largest king salmon of the year.
