Its still early in the season for King salmon on the Sacramento River near Corning, Ca. but we're seeing intermittent pods of Kings in most of the salmon holes daily.  So far its showing up like the typical season does which can make for some hard choices for our guides.  Do I go up, or do I go down?  As the days continue into the latter half of August, the locations of Kings will be much more predictable as is the case most every year on the Sacramento River.  Here are a few fish pics turned in by our Captains, Jeff Brady and Justin Thompson, of fish caught drifting Pautzke Fire Cured eggs the past few days. We have a few dates avilable in September and October for fall run Kings for those of you who are interested in fishing for river salmon this season.  Dates filled rapidly this year for August and September salmon trips and I expect the remainder of our October dates will be disappearing quickly now.  If you miss the October timeframe, we will start booking our late fall run season which will run from mid November thru December 31st.  Thank you!
