The Fish Sniffer - Trout Fishing Rated As Red Hot
Trout Fishing Rated As Red Hot

Written By: Cal Kellogg, June 14, 2014
Species: Trout
Location: Sacramento River- Middle,

The Sacramento River below Redding is running at 7,500 cfs, a perfect level for trouters. The trout action has been excellent for both conventional tackle anglers and fly fishers.

Jason Thatcher of JT Guide Service reported that the fly fishing on the Sacramento River has been very good in the Anderson area.

Anglers fishing with Thatcher are working multiple fly leaders teamed with indicators. Rubber leg nymphs and a variety of smaller nymphs are doing the damage. The average fish goes about 14 inches, but fish ranging up to 26 inches have been showing up fairly often. On an average day a decent fly angler can expect 20 hook ups.

Mike Bogue of Mike Bogue’s Guide Service has been nailing trout on the Sacramento too, but he’s been doing it with conventional tackle. When aggressive fish can be found in shallow water, back trolling small plugs has been the method of choice.

When plugs fail to pay off, Bogue has been relying on both Pautzke cured roe and Pautzke salmon eggs. The eggs work great for working deep water that can’t be touch with plugs.
