Sacramento River salmon limits set for 2021!

Not only has the Sacramento River salmon season been set for 2021 but the daily Sacramento River bag limits have been adopted as well. 
This year the Sacramento River will open to king salmon fishing on July 16, 2021 and remain open through December 31, 2021. Anglers again will be allowed a two (2) salmon per day daily limit with a four (4) salmon per person possession limit. 
This years Sacramento River salmon opener is closing in quickly and this years top salmon fishing dates are filling quickly.  Fortunately we offer two fully equipped Sacramento River salmon fishing boats and top guides Dave Jacobs and Ryan Tripp's guide boats are filling up quickly. NOW IS THE TIME TO LOCK IN AND BOOK THE TOP DATES JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER.  WE ARE NOW FILLING DAVE JACOBS AND RYAN TRIPP SALMON CALENDARS DAILY!! call (530)646-9110 and Dave Jacobs will get you booked in on both his and Ryan Tripp guide boats. As you can see in our photo from chenzos_wayoflife ocean salmon off the California coast are big and healthy!

Anglers have mostly been busy with small lake bass, small lake and river trout and hard fighting American shad.  We have been seeing plenty of salmon while trout and shad fishing recently.  Our Sacramento River striper trips are winding down but as you can see from a few pics here our guide boats have been very successful at bringing huge stripers to the boat nightly with Ryan Tripp. We have also been hammering the American Shad 50 plus at a time on the Sacramento River. 
Anglers on the Sacramento River can now find Shad spread out from Chico upriver through Red Bluff for all of June and into early July. River flows are lower and river temperatures are higher so expect large shad spawns on the Sacramento River. Side casting and jigging brightly colored small 1/32 ounce weighted jigs tipped with one inch curly tailed grubs or fly fishing our hand tied shad darts is all it takes to put on multiple hook ups on Sacramento River Shad. Call Sacramento River guide Dave Jacobs at (530)646-9110 to book your guided fishing vacation....we have been perfecting Sacramento River salmon fishing trips since 1985!!
