Sacramento River Fishing Reports June 2020

The bulk of this years Amertican Shad return is racing upriver to their yearly spawnning grounds in great numbers.  All of the Sacramento River tributaries are teeming with thousands upon thousands of hard fighting American Shad.  Most shad are averaging one to three pounds with a hefty amount of large females tipping the scales at 3.5 to 4 plus pounds!  All thats needed to trick one of these prized gamefish into biting is a small brightly colored jig tipped with a small curly tailed grub.  Get the right weight and distance and your in for some non stop action. Early in the mornings and late in the evenings are top times to target these shad but we have perfected catching them througout the day on the Sacramento River system.  With the 2020 Sacramento River salmon season looming in the very near future, anglers of all ages and skill levels are enjoying this seasons shad fishing action.

2020 Sacramento River salmon fishing regulations

Sacramento River salmon fishing guide Dave Jacobs is happy to announce that the 2020 Sacramento River salmon regulations have been set by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s commisioners.

The Sacramento River will be open to a full extended salmon fishing season starting on July 16, 2020.  There will be a daily bag limit of two large adult salmon per person with a possesion limit of four king salmon in possesion.  Another addition worth noting is that the season will remain open beyond the traditional December 16th closing date to December 31, 2020!  This extended opener will be permitted above the Red Bluff Diversion Dam in Red Bluff, California up to the Deschutes Bridge in Anderson California.

Probably one of the biggest announcements to be made about this years salmon fishing regulations is the daily limit increase over on the Feather River.  Anglers will be allowed (3) three king salmon per day through October 31, 2020.
