Salmon fishing in the Sacramento River is going well right now and things should get even better over the next few weeks as more and more fish move in from the ocean.
“We are doing really well right now, but there is always room for improvement,” related Dave Jacobs of Dave Jacob’s Guide Service. “We are boating 5 to 6 fish per day right now and we are hooking from 7 to 10. Early sardine wrapped Brad’s Killerfish Plugs have been the way to go for me. After the sun is on the water I switch over to dark red Pautzke cured roe.”
“The average fish being caught right now runs from 17 to 20 pounds and the biggest fish are going 25 to 29. The best action is taking place south of Red Bluff and good fishing is being had all the way down river to Colusa,” added Jacobs.
Mike Bogue is also reporting very good salmon action on the Sacramento. Like Jacobs, he starts off with plugs early and then switches over to Pauztke cured roe.
Bogue had some engine issues with a kicking motor last week and then kept him sidelined for a few days, but by press time he’ll be back out on the water catching fish.Back To Reports
