Fall King Salmon Update!

Sacramento River - CA

by Dave Jacobs

The Fall king salmon fishing has finally slowed with most of the Fall run spawning at this time. The trout and steelhead fishing near the Sacramento River salmon spawn has still been good this past week from Redding through Red Bluff. Drifting small hand tied egg colored glo bugs has been best for the trout and steelhead one to four pounds. The Sacramento River Late Fall king salmon run offers anglers some of the biggest and brightest king salmon of the season to catch. Typically we see the best Late fall salmon fishing in November and December with the peak going right up to the closure date of December 16th. Back trolling large sardine wrapped plugs like the Brad’s KF-16 Killerfish lures are best for late Fall king salmon. Currently the Late Fall king salmon have been coming through in small groups giving anglers a shot at a coupe of chrome bright kings.
