Salmon On Solid Bite Below Scotty’s Landing
The salmon bite is building momentum on the Sacramento River from Knights Landing to Chico, with the top action reported below Scotty’s Landing.
“It’s been a great week on the Sacramento River below Scotty's,” reported Rick Kennedy of Tight Lines Gudieser vice. “ We have experienced a consistent bite all week.”
“We are still seeing a lot of clean bright fish. Our number one producer has been the T-55 & T-60 Flat Fish. The color of choice has changed almost everyday, but Chrome/Green Head T-55 has been the most consistent. Most of the fish we have been landing have averaged around 15 to 18 pounds with a handful of fish in the high twenties.”
“We started Saturday, September 14 day off with a double hook-up and had fast action for the first hour and a half. Jeff Henigan of Elk Grove caught a bright 29 pounder on a T-55 Flat Fish,” said Kennedy.
“Salmon fishing all and all has been good, but not wide open,” reported Scott Feist of Feisty Fish Guide Service, who was also fishing out of Chico. “We have been averaging a fish per rod to limits, with a few slower days in the mix. The size of the fish has been exceptional!”
“All fish caught have been on Pautzke Fire-cured roe and a variety of Yakima Bait Co T-55 lures with chartreuse and chrome and white and pink being the best colors,” he added.
“The salmon fishing is hit and miss from Colusa State Park up to Ward’s Landing,” said Doug Turner of Kittle’s Outdoor in Colusa. “Anglers are doing best with Sacramento spinners and Flatfish with sardine wrappers.”Back To Reports
