Epic wild rainbow trout fishing!

This week is off to a great start and the trout fishing is simply amazing right now.  Our early fall salmon run has lost steam and most of the hatchery fish are being processed/spawned at Coleman. The Sac River above Anderson is experiencing a really good in river spawn this year with hundreds of salmon spawning right now.  The wild rainbows are gorging themselves on single salmon eggs and fishing roe or beads is the best bet right now.  Double digit hook ups are almost automatic now and will be through December.  We're taking advantage of the break in between the fall and late fall run Kings, but will be headed down river for our big, bright late fall salmon and hatchery steelhead combo trips soon!
