Sacramento River sturgeon fishing report.

The Sacramento River sturgeon fishing report is courtesy of Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service.

The white sturgeon in the lower Sacramento River are stacking up for the spring spawn near Colusa California.  There are large groups of white sturgeon in many of the traditional holding holes from Butte City California downriver through Knights Landing California.  The Sacramento River flows have been very high and are now dropping back down to safer fishable levels.  The flows are heading towards the 51 foot mark in Colusa California by this weekend as reported by Sacramento River sturgeon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  As you can see by today’s picture sent in by guide Mike Rasmussen, there are great schools of sturgeon metering on the graphs.  Anchor fishing with various cut baits are best bets now.  Anglers should still exercise extreme caution while on the Sacramento River as there are plenty of large “sweeper” sized trees floating down.  There are also many new submerged gravel bars, new islands and submerged tress.  Use extreme caution while anchoring in high flows with these large trees floating downriver.
