We are just days away from saying goodbye to the 2020 Sacramento River King salmon fishing season, but we're still putting our clients on some great fish!  Overall the season was a tough one, but with the lowest flows we've seen in many years, its no wonder.  There were plenty of salmon to be caught every day, just ask anyone who fished with us.  Big Kings could be seen rolling in the Barge Hole every morning, giving us all the indication that the salmon were there.  It wasn't the numbers of fish we struggled with during the late fall run, it was all about the tough bite.  The morning bite was always the best, but if we missed them or the fish came off, it was gonna be a tough day.  One to three bites seemed to be the average and our best day was 4 kings landed in Captain Justin's boat.  It is what it is and now we're all about planning our strategy for the 2021 Sacramento River King salmon season.  Thanks to all who followed our salmon fishing reports this year.  We truly value your support and look forward to reporting on our salmon fishing next year.  Thank you!

We are now and have been booking our 2021 salmon fishing trips which will begin in mid July next year.  Many of our clients booked next years King salmon trip(s) with us before they got off the boat this year.  For those of you who who have not booked, or for those of you who did not fish with us this year, please consider booking sooner than later as we were unable to accomodate many salmon fishing trip requests due to a fully booked schedule this year.  Thank you!
