    Your welcome...Pretty cool to hook into a Coho, they don't ususally dive deep but fight hard and jump a lot like steelhead. They have an almost white inner jaw/mouth. I wonder how big it was. They're smaller than kings, 6-12lb and avg. 7-9lbs, 24-27 inches. They rarely get up to record size 33lb., 38 inches. They did have a small population in the Sac way back many years ago. There's not much history found of them in the Sac. The stripers are good in the delta Sept/Oct so good luck.

    Yes, but the Coho species of salmon is very rare here and the Chum which I did hear a few caught in the basin, no others like the Pink or Sockeye anywhere near here, way north. But it's common every year around here to have 4 different runs of Chinook salmon. The late fall run is already happening by somebody reporting those salmon being caught in Knights Landing but it's very soon for those so I'm not sure about that. November into Dec, they show and I've caught chrome salmon in Nov as well as others and that's pretty common. A few of the spring run salmon are accidently caught in May in the Sac by shad fisherman. I saw a 18lb chrome salmon caught and released in the American around the 1st of June a few years ago by an angler tossing a swim bait for stripers, those are less commonly caught. Salmon caught opening day 7/16 or late July are probably spring run salmon or the tail end, maybe Feather river salmon. I don't hear much about the winter run salmon. The fall run is the biggest of all the runs but the numbers seem to be dropping.

The eggs need shade and cold 48-51 degree water to hatch. Before 1950, the Sac used to have a small population of Coho. Now the Coho has a small population in the Russian and a much bigger population 28 miles north in the Gualala river all the way to Alaska and Siberia. Historically before all the dams and forest clearing, Coho Salmon were widely distributed and abundant in many coastal watersheds of central and northern California, ranging from the Smith River near the Oregon border to the San Lorenzo River, Santa Cruz County, on the central California coast to Big Sur.

    Spare a thought for the wardens trying to do their job.

    Then remember these types of conversations when people complain about how complicated the regs are. They're written for most ridiculous of excuses possible, and folks will even come up with ways to circumvent those.

    Good ways and across the delta cross channel...you'd basically have to pull your boat out and relaunch down at Whimpys and no I wouldn't get caught with 3 fish no matter where you are!!..was just sayin if you limit on the Sac early pull out and run down there and try for a second on the Moke..for those of us that have a long drive to fish it really sucks to catch early and have to turn around and head home...the Moke gives an opportunity to keep fishin
