Sacramento River salmon fishing report.

Salmon fishing on the Sacramento River has been getting very good this week.  More and more fresh king salmon have moved upriver towards the spawning grounds.  Anglers this week are mostly catching limits of king salmon. This is happening daily on the Sacramento River above and below Red Bluff California.   Dragging cured salmon roe tipped with a bright puffball is working best this week with salmon 6 to 20 pounds being landed.  Anglers are also hooking and landing many stripped bass while salmon fishing this season.  This time of year there are many different species of fish to fish for on the Sacramento River from steelhead, salmon and stripped bass.  The Sacramento River flows are coming down this week, but river temps are very cool for the kings in the river as reported by Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs.

King salmon made a very good showing in August and September is starting out very strong.  This season anglers are enjoying a two salmon in possession limit and a one salmon per day limit.  “Even though the salmon limit in the Sacramento and Feather rivers are reduced to one salmon this season, the action has been so good this week that our clients have been able to release the small jack salmon and try for a bigger salmon'” reports guide Dave Jacobs of Professional Guide Service.  There have been a couple of other salmon fishing techniques that have produced salmon this week as well.  With dragging salmon roe down the river being top producer, anglers back trolling sardine wrapped kwikfish lures are hooking up occasionally as well as back bouncing roe/puffball combos.  This salmon season is set to be a full season open to salmon fishing and retention through December 16th.  Best salmon fishing has been happening from Anderson Balls Ferry at the Barge Hole downriver through Colusa California.
