There are groups of fresh king salmon going into the Sacramento River this past week. The better fishing is happening in many different sections of river from Chico to the Barge Hole. If you fish the right section on any given day you could score on bright king salmon. The salmon are moving through and not really holding up in any section. Salmon have been caught in Chico, Red Bluff, Anderson Balls Ferry, Los Molinos, Corning, Hamilton City and Colusa, California. These small schools of salmon are definitely scattered but anglers putting in the their time are hooking fresh king salmon on the Sacramento River. Over on the Feather River below Oroville, California, there are schools of fresh salmon moving into the Feather River Outlet Hole. Some kings are being seen downriver towards Gridley but fewer kings are being hooked below the Outlet Hole. Almost all of the action is in the Outlet Hole from the boats and from the bank. Bank anglers casting blue fox style spinners are scoring some kings daily. Backtroling sardine wrapped plugs are scoring from the boats as well as back bouncing roe. With the great ocean reports as of late, there may be a great push of king salmon into the Sacramento, American and Feather Rivers. Anglers looking for chances at multiple hook ups on king salmon should give the Trinity River a try from Lewiston to Douglas City, California. There have been many king salmon and a few steelhead moving through for the last five weeks as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs. Pictured is a nice group of king salmon hooked on the Trinity River with Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service this month back bouncing roe.
