We spent the last two days Salmon Fishing Sacramento River in the Sacramento Metro area. It didn’t take long to remind myself how this area can be either on or off. Monday we fished hard for several hours for nothing more than a slight grab. As a guide, days like this keep you up all night thinking what could I have done different and what will I change tomorrow. Well, today we launched at the same time, started in the same place with the same lures and within an hour and a half we had 5 nice salmon up to 35 pounds in the boat. We got our first five fish quickly and needed one more for full limits for our clients. We had that number six fish on four times but couldn’t seem to get him to the boat. All our fish were caught trolling down river on the outgoing tide.
