  1. Re: Sacramento Bee Article on American River Native Salmon

    Yeah. The stats still have me pretty speechless. What a world weíve come to live in.

  3. Re: Sacramento Bee Article on American River Native Salmon

    To top that off, Californian commercial ocean take went 100,000 fish over quota. 300,000 plus adults dead and on ice before they even can get to the river. Supposedly that 100,000 will just be...

    Most stripers in the Sacramento River are up by Coleman fish hatchery munching smolt right now. I was catching fish in the metro sac area all through November-December, then they all seemed to have...

    Re: Uvr?!!

    Sounds like a fun trip! Those fish must be feeding pretty heavily before winter. Canít see the pics, did you release or keep them? Wonder what theyíre eating when it gets this cold

    Re: San Joaquin water check

    Sacramento side of the delta is also now inundated with mud. Less than 1í visibility in most areas close to the main Sacramento. Donít know temps, but it feels way colder than it did a week ago.

    Sticky: Re: 2019 salmon thread

    Since you caught so many, did you notice a bigger ratio of bucks to females this season? Seemed like every fish was a buck or jack for a long period of time. Iíve seen more hens caught recently. ...

    Not a normal fall, thatís for sure. Then again, stripes arenít normal fish. Itís frustrating for sure, but when they show themselves, keeps it all interesting.

    Thanks for the updates.

    Sad. Those huge pulse flows brought up nothing then. Thanks for the report, Iíve been trying the upper river here and there, and same results. Nobody home. Polar opposite to last year.

    Re: Moke 10-5

    The upper river (Woodbridge to peltier) is dead as well. As lot of fish came up on the first pulse. Which is odd. This second one, the river is still devoid.

    Re: On the Sac River today

    For people who have fished in the dark for these things in a legal manner, do you think the glow lure actually has something to do with the bites? Or would a normal plug or jig suffice?
