Sacramento River fishing report.

The king salmon fishing has slowed down considerably this week with very few Fall run king salmon left in the river.  Many of this Fall’s king salmon have moved up into Battle Creek towards the Coleman hatchery.  There have been a few salmon and steelhead still trickling in but the numbers of fish to fish for have been very low this week.  Anglers should begin to see some of the early arriving Late Fall king salmon in early November.  The Late Fall king salmon run should build and peak through December 15th.

Feather River salmon fishing.

The Feather River has closed from Oroville through Gridley as of October 15th.  The red hot salmon bite this season continued all the way through the October 15th closure.  Many salmon were landed while back bouncing roe/puffballs in and around the Outlet Hole below Oroville. Flows have now dropped below 2000 cfs on the Feather River.  The salmon fishing below Gridley has been spotty at best downriver through Yuba City, Ca.

Sacramento River rainbow trout fishing.

The Fall October Sacramento River trout bite has been fair to good at best this week.  The annual Fall in river king salmon spawn is very low.  With few salmon spawning in the upper Sacramento River from Redding to Anderson, the red hot October trout bite just hasn’t taken off.  Most of the rainbows hooked are 13 to 16 inches with very few 20 inch bows being caught.
