    Re: Sacramento Area

    Any reports lately from the area for salmon? We live about 4 hrs south and wanting to come up this weekend with the family, but not sure how it's going up there. We were up there three weeks ago and nada. Thanks.

    I have been fishing for over 30 years now over a variety of different style and different techniques for different species. I understand the patience that is required. I was thinking I was just doing something wrong, as I have never caught a chromer out of the river system. Not to say I haven't caught a salmon, just not a chromer.

    I fished the area Friday and managed one fish. My buddy fished all day yesterday and didn't get a bite.

    You might not be doing anything wrong , its called fishing ..... Not catching .... I'm nearly in the same boat other than I've caught a few this yr , but way more skunks than catches and I've been out way more than 15 times probably at least 30 ... Lost more hooked fish this season than I can ever remember but still come home skunked and it does suck no doubt ...
    Most of the times , No body is catching fish so I don't feel so bad when its the same for us all , a d of coarse when everyone is catching fish I caught or hooked up ....
    Thing is especially were your fishing , if a school isn't moving through you have few stragglers so it's hard to catch what's not there ... At least up further on the Feather and Sac fish are spread out a bit so you do see catches here and there vs when a school moves through and lots are hooking up ... Just keep at it , cuz you surely won't catch one from the couch ...
    From what I've read the guys Bank fishing in that area toss spinners .... Cast out and count to 10 before you start to reel in and reel as slow as possible, even bumping rocks on the bottom is fine cuz when people say they're near the bottom 2ft its more like bottom 6 to 8 inches not feet .. Keep it in their face and if theyre in the hole you'll get one sooner or later ....
    Good luck to ya
