We are nearing the beginning of a much better salmon season on the Sacramento River than we saw last year and most of the salmon we are catching are 3-4 year olds averaging 15-20 lbs.  There are a few larger fish in the mix and I'm certain we'll see several salmon over 40 lbs landed this year.  We have a lot of folks calling and asking about river and air quality conditions and I promise you all that we currently have plenty of cold water for our salmon run and the air quality has been pretty good south of Redding.  We're not afraid to let folks know if fishing conditions deteriorate or the air quality is unsafe.  Trust me when I say, we don't want to fish in those conditions either.  We had some really heavy smoke to deal with on Shasta Lake this year and everyone who cancelled their trips for health reasons were allowed to do so without any problems on our end.  Captain Justin Thompson and I are sold out for September trips, but Captain Kenny and Captain Brady have a day or two left to fill on the September schedule for those of you that haven't had a chance to schedule a trip this season.  The chances of catching one or two big Kings per angler this season is a real possibility, especially in September and October.  Please call Jaynie for more information and available dates if you're interested.  Office/reservations desk- (530) 510-2925.

Thank you!
