Sacramento River striper fishing guide.

Todays Sacramento and Feather River fishing report is courtesy of Sacramento River striper fishing guide Dave Jacobs.

The striper fishing bite has been heating up with daily limits of striped bass this past weekend.  With several striper fishing derbies under our belt and several mare scheduled to take place this coming weekend, this week looks to be much quieter on the water.  Here on the Sacramento the river conditions in Colusa California are very high and the schools of stripers are a bit more challenging to find.  Those that travel to find the larger schools of striped bass early are scoring on keeper sized striped bass 18 to 22 inches. Trolling live minnows has been working well along with hanging live bait on the small schools of striped bass on the Sacramento River near Colusa California.  A short drive away, anglers are enjoying a better bite on stripers 18 to 28 inches.  The school of striped bass is larger as well as the overall average size of stripers.  The live bait bite has been good even with the high flows.  Where there is heavy boat traffic there will be much more mud churned up with some banks caving in.  The clearer water has worked best for us this weekend back bouncing or trolling live minnows.  There has been many fish moving upriver as reported by Feather River striper fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  The great striper fishing looks to go well into May with all of the high and very cold water.  The Sacramento River is beginning to receded this week and better fishing will likely take place. is home of Northern Californias most up to date  Sacramento river fishing reports and fishing updates.
