The Sacramento River in Redding has been consistently producing very good fishing this past week.  Water conditions are great and the trout are big and hungry!  Drifting Pautzke natural cured eggs is a top bet and is taking a lot of trout these days.  You know the presentation you're throwing is great when you're seeing double and even triple hook ups just about every trip.  Ultra light spin gear makes catching these wild rainbows extra sporting and some of these hot fish will peel line, jump in the air, and even dive deep into the holes in an attempt to throw a hook to get away.  Little do they know they are going to be released, but we do appreciate them putting up such a great fight.  The season is still far from winding down and we currently have plenty of open dates that are available.  Whether your groups large or small, we fish them all.  All of our trips are private so you'll never have to worry about fishing with other anglers you don't know.  Our guides are all geared towards a private fishing experience and our clients, new and old keep coming back for more.  Give Jaynie a call to set up your Sacramento River wild rainbow trout fishing trip this summer.  Thank you!
