King Fishing Good For Big, Bright Fish
“The Sacramento River salmon bite is pretty decent these days. I wouldn’t say the fishing is easy, but the fish are big and healthy,” that was the word from Mike Bogue of Mike Bogue’s Guide Service.
“We’ve been hooking several fish every day. Our success rate has been running from a fish per rod to limits depending on the conditions and if we are able to land the fish we hook. My clients have had a pair of fish over 30 pounds this week and most of the kings we hook run a solid 15 to 25,” said Bogue.
Bogue has been doing a lot of his fishing in the Red Bluff area. He advises anglers to fish wrapped Flatfish early, before switching over to Pautzke cured roe once the sun hits the water.
Al Brown of Al Brown’s Guide Service has been splitting his time between targeting salmon and trout.
“We haven’t caught a lot of salmon yet, but the ones we’ve gotten have been really nice fish. On our most recent trip, we landed a very bright 20 pounder that looked like it had just come up from the ocean. I’ve been getting all my salmon while boon doggling roe,” said Brown.
“The trout bite has been going strong. I fished for trout a few days ago with a friend of mine and we got several fat wild rainbows while back trolling plugs,” Brown added.Back To Reports
