Sacramento River Salmon Guides Fishing Report

Sacramento River - CA

by Dave Jacobs

The Sacramento River salmon fishing season finally opened on Saturday, November 1st, with some much needed rain in Northern California and some decent reports of bright, hard fighting Late Fall king salmon. The season is limited from the Red Bluff diversion dam downriver to Knights landing and is open from November 1st to December 31st. The opening weekend produced some very nice king salmon from Red Bluff through Colusa, Ca. Don Benson landed a nice 20 pound hatchery hen while out with professional guide services Dave Jacobs on Saturdays opener. Only a handfull of salmon were hooked this weekend with better scores on Saturday than Sunday. Backbouncing sardine wrapped Kwikfish and Flatfish lures produced most salmon as reported by Sacramento river salmon guides while Sacramento river salmon fishing. Salmon fishing was good this past week with better scores of salmon on the week days rather than the weekends. Red Bluff downriver to Colusa produced most hook-ups. Some Sacramento river salmon guides reported salmon hooked on backbounced roe over the weekend. The California state record salmon of 88 pounds was caught this time of year and it is well known that salmon fishing this time of year could produce a true Sacramento river trophy king salmon.
