Just one month remains for the 2021 Sac salmon season above Red Bluff!  The Kings have arrived in the area's we're fishing now, and there's more on the way.  We've seen our first real increase in salmon numbers this past week and we should see a steady improvement up until the season closes at the end of December.  Bright King salmon have been caught in the Sacramento Metro area this past week and most of the fish moving through the lower river now are headed to Coleman Hatchery and to the spawning grounds above Anderson.  We've had some tough days for salmon fishing in November, but we're getting a few shots at Kings every day now.  Most of our Kings are caught back trolling plugs, but we're getting a few on bait as well.  With the river water finally clearing a bit, conditions are really good and will stay that way until we see a few inches of rain again sometime in December.  All of our boats will be taking December 23rd thru the 26th off. but we have at least one boat available through the month of December.  Give Jaynie a call at the office for more trip info and for availabe dates in December.  Thank you!  (530) 510-2925.
