Steelhead, Rainbow Trout
Multi pound trout and steelhead are showing up in good numbers again this fall. We'll be fishing them as long as the water color and winter flows cooperate.

Today I fished the Sacramento River in Redding for wild trout and steelhead.  We found steady action drifting Pautzke Bait Co. Natural Bor X O Fire roe and when running bait divers.  The action was steady and fishing pressure was light.  Its a great time of the year to spend a day on the river catching fish pretty much all day long...
