The Sacramento River in Redding has consistently produced some great fishing this winter season!  Flow's are currently 15,000 cfs and is scheduled to bump to 20,000 cfs next week.  Water color is great and it should remain so even after the flow increses.  We fish the Sac in Redding in power boats most of the time so access during heavy flows isn't a problem.  In fact, we tend to get into some really good fishing during high flows when most days we have the river to ourselves.  We had 2 boats fishing yesterday and they had a fantastic time catching lots of wild trout and even hooked 3 German browns in the areas they were fishing.  Drifting beads has been very effective dur to the fact we have spawning late fall salmon in the river now. We will be fishing the Sac in Redding in February and March before we head down river to fish for Striped bass in April and part of May.  We have good availability if youd like to fish with a guide.  Call or text Jaynie at (530) 510-2925 for more information and available dates.
