Sacramento River salmon fishing report.

Currently the Sacramento River is fully open to king salmon fishing below the Red Bluff Diversion Dam.  The upper section of Sacramento River above Red Bluff will officially open on Wednesday August 1st upriver to the cutoff at the Deschutes Bridge in Anderson California.  This will include the famed Barge Hole opener below the mouth of Battle Creek.  With the current hot temps in the Northern California valley and the massive Carr fire burning north near Redding California, salmon fishing pressure has been incredibly light and the salmon bite has been good for the few getting out and salmon fishing this past week.  Ocean charters like The NEW RAYANN out of the Golden Gate have continued to catch full boat limits of large salmon this past week as well and there looks to be a huge amount of king salmon ready to enter the Sacramento and Feather Rivers now.  Large chrome bright king salmon have been being caught up to 29 pounds this week from Red Bluff downriver through Colusa California as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs. Best bets have been small sardine wrapped plugs like the K-15 Kwikfish backbounced through the salmon holding waters.  Also drifting roe/puffball combos have scored  on large hard fighting king salmon on the Sacramento River.

Trinity River salmon fishing report.

Due to the large Carr fire near Redding and Lewiston California, salmon fishing on the Trinity River has come to a screeching halt.  Highway 299 west out of Redding California has been closed for a week now and large parts of West Redding, Lewiston Ca and Douglas City Ca are now under a mandatory evacuation due to the raging Carr wildfire. Salmon fishing was fair before the fire broke out near Lewiston and I will give a salmon fishing update on the Trinity River later this month.

Feather river salmon fishing report.

The king salmon fishing on the Feather river is going well for a few boaters as well as the bank anglers around the Outlet Hole near Oroville California.  Small groups of fresh king salmon continue to move up the Feather River daily as reported by Feather River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs. Most salmon have been holding in the Outlet Hole for awhile then seem to move up into the low flow section of Feather River seeking the colder water from Oroville Dam.  Anglers casting large Blue Fox spinners in the #6 sizes and in blue or dark purple colors are doing best early in the mornings or late in the evenings.  Boaters in the Outlet Hole are getting a chance or two back bouncing K-16 Kwikfish with a fresh sardine wrap early in the mornings as well.  Look for salmon fishing to really improve on the Feather River as more king salmon move upriver into the area.
