Captain Justin Thompson has been hitting the Sac River hard the past few days. Its been on the slow side and not a lot of new fish have showed in the Corning area, but thats about to change!  Word has it theres a big push of fish on its way up river and we should be sliding Kings in the net more frequently very soon.  We're on the river every day so when the big numbers arrive, we'll be there to get our clients in on the action!  captains Justin, Kenny, and myself will be pounding all the good salmon holes every day this week starting tomorrow so look for future reports on fishing conditions right here on
