Sacramento River striper fishing report. 

The Sacramento River striper fishing has become a bit tougher with the high river flows this week.  Limits of keeper sized stripers are still happening but top guides and anglers are working hard weeding through the small shakers to get their 18 plus inch keepers.  Drifting live minnows are working well with anchor fishing with various baits a close second.  Top anchor fishing baits while striper fishing on the Sacramento River are pile worms, live minnows and cut baits like sardine or anchovies.  Over on the Feather River, striper fishing is fairing much better with easier limits of keeper sized striped bass.  The flows are very high on the Feather River as well and anglers should exercise caution when boating from Boyds Pump upriver through Yuba City California.  Drifting minnows are working well on the Feather River this past week in the high flows.  April and May are the two top months to target trophy striped bass on both the Sacramento and Feather Rivers.

Sacramento River trout fishing report.

The wild rainbow trout fishing has surprisingly remained steady with anglers scoring trout 16 to 25 inches drifting on the upper Sacramento River near Redding California.  The river releases are now quite high at 30,000 cfs but with the colored water and high flows trout are still biting from Keswick Dam downriver to the Bonneveiw Bridge. Flows are looking to remain high this coming week so anglers should also exercise extreme caution while boat in Redding.
