Northern California salmon fishing.

This Northern California salmon fishing report is courtesy of Dave Jacobs Professional Guide Service.

If you are looking to escape the Sacramento Valley heat and cool off take a look at the Klamath River of Highway 101 on the coast.  The Klamath River at its mouth has been fishing very good this past week as king salmon and steelhead leave its mouth and head upriver for the Fall spawn.  Drifting roe/puffball combos through the productive riffles as salmon move upriver works best.  Bank anglers are scoring on king salmon at the mouth of the Klamath River and at the Klamath Glen riffle in the mornings.  Boaters are scoring good salmon drifting in popular riffles like Cleveland, Brooks, Blakes and Starwin just to name a few.  The best water this past week has been mostly located below Blue Creek as it provides the lower Klamath with cooler water for salmon making their way upriver.  Most salmon have averaged 8 to 15 pounds this week with a few larger salmon 16 to 20 pounds mixed in.

Pictured today is Northern California salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs and Jerie Semion with one of the many chrome bright king salmon caught this week on the Klamath River above Klamath Glen.
