Sacramento River salmon fishing report Aug 13, 2018.

Today’s Sacramento River salmon fishing report Aug 13, 2018 is courtesy of Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service in Redding California.

The Sacramento River 2018 king salmon fishing season continues to build as the salmon bite heats up daily.  The size and numbers of king salmon moving up the Sacramento River now have not been seen in many years as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  Large king salmon, some up to 30 pounds, have come in this week on sardine wrapped plugs and back bouncing roe/puffball combos.  Most of the salmon are moving steadily upriver and are chrome bright and very hard fighters this week.  Several double hook ups have been happening as well with most of the kings being seen from Colusa California upriver through the Barge Hole located just below the hatchery.  August always consistently builds with more and more salmon arriving everyday with September being a very good month to come catch limits of Sacramento River king salmon, most averaging 15 to 22 pounds so far and larger salmon 30 to even 40 pounds a real possibility.  This year anglers visiting the Sacramento River in Northern California can enjoy a full salmon fishing season through December 16, 2018.  Each angler is allowed a two salmon in possession limit which is different from the Sacramento River daily bag limit.  See California Department of Fish and Wildlife website for 2018 Sacramento River daily salmon bag limits on the Sacramento River.  Pictured today is Johnny Freitas(left) and Joe Smith (right) with one of their two incredible “Double Hook Ups” on Sacramento River king salmon while out with Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs this weekend above Colusa California.
