Today was a scheduled fun fishing day with Justin and Kenny on the Sacramento River and our target was wild rainbow trout.  With our busy schedule, its not often we all get to fish together and just talk shop and discuss plans for upcoming seasons.  Its also a great time to try some new gear, baits, or new presentations to keep our guiding skills on the leading edge of technology in the fishing industry.  We had a great time and tested some of the Pautzke Bait Co. 10mm Balls O Fire and worked on some new techniques and presentations with the always effective, Dick Nite spoons.  Salmon egg and smolt imitations are really hot right now with all the Kings in the river right now.  We had a great time, a few laughs, and some new video footage for our social media platforms.
