California’s Burney Creek Loaded with Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Hat Creek, Upper Sacramento River, McCloud River, Pit River, Fall River and many other systems in the mountains above Redding get lots of publicity, and for a good reason. They are heavily stocked, well promoted by fly shops and frequently show up in fishing reports, on hashtags and Facebook posts. Meanwhile, there [...]

California’s Hat Creek Full of Trout

By: Chris Shaffer Hat Creek has been a favorite fishing and camping destination for decades. It’s the staple of Northern California stocked trout fishing for several reasons: it offers many miles of public access, heavy trout plants and the chance to catch trophy rainbows and brooks. That will hold true again this 4th of July. [...]

Shasta/Lassen Nor Cal Holiday Week Trout Update

By: Chris Shaffer It’s prime time for trout fishing in the greater Mt Shasta and Mt Lassen area. After spending a week filming along the Highway 89 corridor we were able to get a good handle on how each system was fishing. We fished roughly a dozen waters in the region and found success in [...]

Last Chance for Feather Stripers

By: Chris Shaffer While not carrying the same buzz it did last year the Northern California striper run is still going on. In fact, we caught a four-man limit and released another dozen fish while filming on the Feather River with Scott Feist of Feisty Fish Guide Service. Action was non-stop even though the run [...]

Sacramento River in Heart of Salmon Season

By: Mike Bogue Back in the spring forecasters expected a poor salmon run on the Sacramento River. However, there’s been fair number of fish in the Upper Sacramento River since August and we’ve been catching fish daily since. Fishing hasn’t been red hot for everyone. Meanwhile, anglers are catching fish daily. I expect this pattern [...]

Sacramento River Still Loaded with Stripers

By: Scott Feist Most years the striper season on the Sacramento River has just about ended. Fortunately, that’s not the case this year. High water has enabled fishing to remain strong and the good news is there’s new batches of stripers still arriving, which means action won’t taper off anytime soon. It’s been a great [...]

It’s Salmon Season On California’s Smith River

By: Mick Thomas There’s a lot of fish in the Smith River, but half of them have already come through the main stem. We’ve had some huge pushes of fish in the past few weeks. That first storm brought a massive number of fish in the system and then the second and third storm brought [...]

Downtown Sacramento Anglers Catching Salmon Now

By: Troy Barr With salmon now returning to the American River fishing from Downtown Sacramento to Clarksburg has been good for anglers trolling sardine wrapped plugs. This year’s fishery has been much better than last season. It’s not as good as it was in 2012 or ‘13, but it’s fishing good. I’m expecting November to [...]

Salmon Season Reopened: Eureka Salmon On the Chew

By: Gary Blasi This season has been whacky. We’ve never had a split season like this where we are allowed to catch salmon for two weeks and then it’s shut down for two weeks. And, we only have 61 days total to chase salmon. It’s been weird. While it doesn’t bother the salmon we can’t [...]

Some Eureka Steelhead Rivers to Fish This Week

By: Alan Borges The month of January brought slow steelhead fishing to the greater Eureka area. The large rainfall totals blew our rivers out. We only got to fish two days the entire month. In fact, steelhead anglers in this area spent their time up north on the Smith and Chetco Rivers. Meanwhile, that’s normal [...]
