I was at Verona on Friday and lost a real nice fish at net. It was so large that it broke the net off at the handle, so now I have a bigger better stronger net and no fish. It struck a green Silverton in 9 feet of water at the color change 200 yards above Verona. Out on Saturday with no luck.

I was out there that morning I saw 6 fish caught. one boat down river caught 3 while no one around them caught anything.. I counted 25 boats.. We ran down from KL when we returned around 1 no one there had fish there were eight boats there..

Keep trying, it took me 6 trips to finally get one. It was worth the wait for the cleanest salmon I have ever caught in the river.
I was out there with you Guy I actually got a hook up with a k14 with sardine but lost it within 3 sec, It was tough seeing about 20 to 25 boats out and not one had caught a fish.. oh well we still have time.... Fish and game was out for a little weaving in and out of the boats... The also went up river a ways and said there wasn't much luck up there either...
Time to whip out some roe, more fish this year has been caught on roe than kwikfish or spinners. Kwikfish to my surprise is pretty slow this season...jig is still doing fairly well.
Skunked, 5 out of 6 outings! Bill Crooks joined me for the day trying, again, for Sac R King Salmon. We launched at Verona and fished downriver on anchor. We used chartreuse lipped K-15s with and without sardine wraps and Silvertron spinners, with & without Bloody Tuna gel on a 48 25# leader and 3 oz of weight on a 18 8# dropper. 42-71 back in 14 of water. 13-18 other boats. We anchored next to Doug from Roseville. We saw four salmon landed (a 18# by Doug) and two LDRs. 5 hours (6-11), 0.5 miles, one anchor location. Water 66.8*, debris in the water, rigs needed clearing every 15. Air 66-86*. Sky clear to high overcast. Wind 0 mph. Sunrise 6:23, % moon visible 0%. Thanks for the company Bill. Maybe well get some hits, hook-up, salmon next time.
