Sacramento River salmon fishing.

Salmon fishing has improved on the Sacramento River recently with more king salmon arriving in the upper river.  The salmon fishing has been slow to fair for most of the run but is now starting to improve with daily catches climbing.  Some of the bigger groups of salmon have been from the Barge Hole downriver through Jellys Ferry.  The average size has been mostly 6 to 12 pound male salmon with the occasional king over 20 pounds reported.  Anglers can expect good fishing here on the Sacramento River into October.  The Late Fall king salmon begin to show in late October all of November and through mid December.  These king salmon are the largest of all the kings that the Sacramento River has to offer with salmon weighing in over 50 pounds every season during the Late Fall run.

Feather River salmon fishing.

The incredible salmon fishing on the Feather River has continued all month and it looks to carry on right into October.  The hot bite has been happening from the Outlet Hole near Oroville downriver through Gridley, Ca.  Flows on the Feather River are still high attracting thousands of king salmon upriver as reported by Feather River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  Catching full limits is the norm here daily with king ranging from 7 pounds to the 35 pound class.  Drifting roe/puffball combos, back bouncing or back trolling sardine wrapped kwikfish style plugs is still the top producers.  Anglers can also expect to pick up more steelhead now with the arrival of the Fall un of king salmon.
