The peak of the Fall run of king salmon are beginning to show in big numbers now as this months full moon cycles.  The best salmon fishing of the season is happening now as the Sacramento River is loading up with chrome bright king salmon and salmon fishing looks to be fantastic  in September.  There was a small group of mostly small king salmon moving through this week but at the time of this report larger 18 to 22 pound kings are moving upriver.  Best bets are drifting roe/puffball combos or back bouncing roe.  Back trolling sardine wrapped lures has been slow this week but as the kings are in the river longer the lure bite will certainly take off again. August has definitely not disappointed this year as large hard fighting king salmon have been caught daily from Red Bluff all the way downriver through Verona.  This next big wave of salmon moving upriver will provide anglers with salmon the the Sacramento River is known for.  There has been a few larger salmon caught this week over the 30 pound class as the one pictured here today.  The Barge Hole near Anderson Balls Ferry is fishing better everyday now as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.  Anglers looking to get away from the crowds have been able todo so this month as many boaters have spread out throughout the Sacramento River from Colusa, Los Molinos and Jellys Ferry just to name a few.

Pictured today is Sacramento River guide Dave Jacobs and Holly Sanson with one of the larger Sacramento River king salmon hooked this week. The king salmon are loading up on the Sacramento River now river wide from Anderson Balls Ferry downriver through Chico California.
