Trout & Resident Steelhead (Season, all year)
The trout and steelhead fishing on the Sacramento River has been good between Redding and Red Bluff. The water levels have been extremely low making it easy to target fish and has kept the boat traffic to a minimum. We continue to land nice sized hatchery steelhead near Cottonwood on flies, plugs, and spoons. The fish have been scattered throughout the river system. We have been targeting fish at the bottom of the riffles, and near the shallow flats along the rivers edge.
Salmon fishing closed December 16th. The fishing was excellent up to the last day of the season. Salmon season will re open in July and August on the Sacramento & Feather Rivers.
Stripers & Shad (May-September)
The striped bass fishing season will begin in April. Expect another awesome year of fishing on the Feather & Sacramento Rivers this year.
The shad fishing will continue in May & June.
