"Old style" kwikfish getting slammed!

The Sacramento River salmon bite has picked up this week on the Lower Sac. Best bets have been backbounced "old style" kwikfish with our special sardine wrap blend.  The swim of these particular old plugs is very important as the salmon this week cannot resist their unique action. Guides Steve Lowery and Ryan Tripp were able to send everyone home with big slabs of Sacramento River salmon fillets with ten salmon 16 to 25 pounds landed on Friday's outing. 

If catching a Sacramento River king salmon is something that interest you, this is the month to give it a try! September and October are great times to catch big hard fighting king salmon. Give me a call, guide Dave Jacobs (530)646-9110 of Professional Guide Service... "we have been perfecting Sacramento River salmon fishing since1985!"
