Captain Justin and Captain kenny are getting clients on some quality salmon right now and its only going to get better as we approach brighter nighttime conditions on the river.  We're likely to see the first big push of fall Kings in the Sacramento River.  Conditions are prime and the SF Bay fishing has slowed indicating fish making their run up river.  With warm water on the lower Sac system, big pods of Kings are going to push up river quickly and we know where they will be stopping to rest after swimming hundereds of miles, basically non stop.  Our August schedule is maxed out and we only have a handful of September dates available now.  Trust me when I say this is not the season to skip if you want to catch river salmon.  Its already been a lot better than the past several years we've seen here on the Sac for King salmon fishing.  I'm on the water daily so email and text is the best way to reach me during the day.  Thank you!
