Lower River Kings Continue To Bite
If you want to hook kings, the top area on the Feather now is the stretch of river below Boyd’s Pump.
“Cody Delozier and my wife, Cherie, caught two salmon weighing 20 and 24 pounds on a trip I made below Boyd’s Pump,” said Bob Boucke of Johnson’s Bait and Tackle. “We anchored with Brad’s Killer Fish in the dragonfly color.”
He noted that anglers landed a “ton of fish” while fishing in Marysville near the Sixth Street Bridge over the weekend. Many anglers limited out by 8 am while fishing plugs or working jigs.
“We hooked and lost a couple of salmon on my last trip on the Feather near Boyd’s Pump,” said Rob Reimers of Rustic Rob’s Guide Service. “However, I heard the fishing was wide-open for a couple of days before my trip.”
Salmon fishing closed on Oct. 15 from the unimproved boat launch ramp above the Thermalito Afterbay Outfall downstream to 200 yards above the Live Oak boat ramp. However, anglers can continue to fish for steelhead, black bass and other species in this river section.
The stretch from 200 yards above Live Oak boat ramp to the mouth will remain open to salmon fishing through Dec. 16.Back To Reports
