I fished the Sacramento River the past few days and found a descent bite, but it hasn't been easy limit fishing.  I've had to work for my fish and have found most of my success drifting eggs.  A lot of the salmon seem to be holding deep in the holes on the Sac, but a few can be found on the flats in the cottonwood area.  New fish are arriving daily so we have at least another three weeks before the fishing drops way off.
