Today was day two of a two day trip with a couple of my great clients from down south.  We fished Shasta Lake today and battled the big winds we experienced on the main body of the lake.  We started off slow again today, but had a cooler stuffed with limits of big trout by the end of the day....

Sacramento River

Today we fished the Sacramento River for King salmon.  My four anglers went 7 for 9 with Kings 7 to 10.5 lbs.  Pods of fresh salmon are moving through the Sacramento River system daily and the next four weeks should provide the best fishing we'll see for remainder of the fall run.  If you haven't scheduled your salmon fishing trip...
