The Steelhead fishing on the Lower Sacramento River is pretty good right now we have been landing 2 to 4 Steelhead up to 6 lbs. and many Wild Rainbow Trout up to 3 lbs. with allot more hits but no hookups the past few trips out. We are catching fish pulling plug or drifting Glow bugs or a cricket. Fly fishing with small nymphs like a caddis or Mayfly imitation under a indicator.

The Salmon fishing on the Sacramento River for the late fall King Salmon has been picking up and will only get better with a few more storms to bring the Salmon on up river into he Balls Ferry area. I like to use k-16 flat fish with a Sardine wrap at this time of year back trolled or anchor up.

Good Luck Hooked On Fishing
