View Full Version : Sacramento river fishing Questions

10-11-2006, 07:21 PM
I'm going to be in Red Bluff the next few days. I might get a chance to go fish the sac river. I know it is really low right now but think some fish might be biting. I was wondering what I should try to fish for and how to fish it. tackle, bait, method.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks MB

If your gonna bank it, might be tough to get access, but there are salmon up there right now. Take stripers/sturgeon rods and reels and try to find a hole you can plunk kwikfish or roe in. Figure 2-6 oz. weights, on a 3 way swivel, 1-2 ft dropper, 4-5 foot leader, then lure.

Or do some trout fishing, it is quite good up there, hot shots rapals or live bait.

There are stripers up there, but I did not tell you that. ;)

Thanks MR.T I took my bigger rods and reels and will be heading up there. I will check this from my phone but can't reply.
