The Trout fishing from Redding to Anderson is great right now and will only get better throughout the summer . Mitch was up from Oakland last weekend for some Wild Rainbow Trout fishing. We started out in the morning drifting small fly's and hooked up with a couple Trout over 20 inches then the wind came up in the afternoon so we switched over to trolling some lures and hooked up about 15 more times. All the Trout were between 12 and 16 inches. Bruce came up from Chico on Sunday to fish for a half day, 10 minutes after we started fishing we had netted 2 Wild Rainbow Trout that were about 14 inches long both fish were released without any harm to them. We fished for another 4 hours and hooked about 20 more fish.

What are they biting on ? Fly fishermen are using small Caddis or Mayfly nymphs under a indicator. Spin fishermen are drifting worms, crickets or Glow Bugs. Trolling Hot shots or flat fish will work also to hook a feisty wild Trout on the Sacramento River.

Salmon fishing season opens July 16th this year and the word is we are in for a bigger run of Salmon than last year and a lot bigger fish .
