Sac River salmon/trout/steelhead

Sacramento River - Lower - Redding, CA (Shasta County)

Sac River steelhead are a ton of fun to catch! We use ultralight gear so all these fish fight hard before release.

The Sac is really slow for salmon, the trout fishing is really good, and the steelhead fishing sits right in the middle of all the action that exists.  Justin and Jeff Brady fished from Redding to Cottonwood and all things said, the trout fishing was by far the best action of the day.  Reports of bright late fall Kings say they are close and are being caught from Chico to Red Bluff.  I saw salmon rolling down in the Bend Bridge area early this week so we aren't far from seeing the first push of late fall salmon below Battle Creek.
