Sacramento River Fish Report

Sacramento River - CA

by Dave Jacobs

Backbounced Buck!! Working the Sacramento River this time of year can produce some of the nicest king salmon that Northern California has to offer, and even though there are many ways to target salmon in the river's, backbouncing kwikfish/flatfish style lures is a great technique to target the Sacramento River kings. November and December offer angler's their best chance at a true trophy salmon on this river as did Howard Bowles of Brentwood, California while out on a guided salmon trip with Dave Jacobs of professional guide service in early November. Howard's 21 pound big hatchery buck fell for a backbounced sardine wrapped K-16 kwikfish in 20 feet of water. Salmon fishing has been really good in November and should only get better through December.
