The Shad fishing continues to be good. We have been trip hooking 15 to 30 fish every trip out on a 1/16oz. pink head with a green body grub about 1 inches long .Shad are very hard fighting fish all the way to the net. We have been Sturgeon and Striper fishing after Shad fishing in the morning . Hooking one to four fish every trip out. What a kick to land a 7 foot long Sturgeon and a 27lbs. Striper all on the same trip.

Trout fishing is great during the summer months on the Sacramento River in Redding. The wild Rainbow Trout on this part of the river bite all day long fly's, plugs or bugs. Landed one 5lbs.Wild Rainbow Trout last trip out and many smaller ones.
