Sacramento River sturgeon fishing report.

The spring sturgeon fishing is now in full swing as many white sturgeon have joined together in large groups in different holes up and down the Sacramento River.  With the sturgeon spawn happening now, large sturgeon both legal slot sized and over sized have been coming into the nets. Best sturgeon fishing has been on the Sacramento and Feather Rivers.  Over on the Sacramento River, Knights Landing upriver through Princeton has been best and on the Feather look for sturgeon above and below Boyds Pump now.  Best baits have been pile worms paired up with fresh ghost shrimp, various cut baits like eel, sardines and deep “cold water” cured roe, all fished near sturgeon “hot spots” from anchor.  Legal slot white sturgeon must be greater than 40 inches and no more than 60 inches nose to fork length.  California sturgeon report cards are required to target, retain or release white sturgeon.

Sacramento River rainbow trout fishing.

The great fishing in downtown Redding California for hard fighting wild rainbow trout has continued for anglers in both power and drift boats this week.  With the nice weather in the North State this week more anglers are getting out and having good success landing trout 16 to 20 inches.  Spring is a great time to get out on the Sacramento River and try for these wild bows’ both with conventional spin or fly gear.  Look for even better trout fishing as river flows increase this Spring from Keswick Dam.

Sacramento River striped bass fishing.

The spring striper run is just starting with a few early arriving stripped bass beginning to move up both the Feather and Sacramento Rivers.  The recent river rise and fall on the Sacramento and Feather Rivers has attracted the beginning of this years striper run.  Stripers can be targeted for successfully from Verona upriver through Chico this spring.  Look for the main run to heat up in April and go right into early May this year.
