  • Report: Provided by Phils Props
    Salmon fishing on the Lower Sacramento river got off to a slow start this year. Reports from the Corning area are that more fish are starting to show up in that section of the river which means we are not far off of seeing them in better numbers from Red Bluff up to the Barge hole. Back trolling flatfish and back bouncing roe have been paying off with dime bright fish.

    Report: Headed south out of Scottys. Plan was to just throw a few Black 6" Ribbon tail worms at the bank, rocks, snags etc. Figured on a few easy "Squawfish" and proceeded to find several on sandy flats near deeper rip rap. Several fish over 4lbs. THEN.... WHAM.. Striper! Boated 2 in 15 mins, figure they were together, as that was the only 2. Bothfish were males in the 3lb range. Released them both. Hit a few more spots fishing a similiar pattern, but Nothing! Good to see a few are already up this way. Waiting now.

    Tips: None realy. The fish I did catch were in 6 to 8 feet of water in the top of a rip/rap hole just below a sand bar. GET BIT!!!
