Sacramento River Fall Run Salmon Fishing - More salmon are showing in the Red Bluff area everyday. While there are still a few bright salmon, most are turning dark, but with meat still red enough to cook (flavor similar to farm raised salmon, but nowhere close to lower Rogue or August Sac salmon) while some are suitable only for smoking. Over the next week, expect the salmon to turn darker. With low, clear and much warmer than normal water, potential clients should expect mostly dark salmon, suitable only for smoking from this point on and for most salmon to be so soft that they will not even be worth smoking by mid-late October. We will not be booking fall run salmon fishing trips after Oct 8th this year.

Late Fall Run King Salmon Fishing
- Our next salmon fishing will be for ocean fresh late fall run king salmon that arrives in Red Bluff about a week after the 1st major rains of the year. That could as early as the 2nd week of November or as late as Thanksgiving. Late fall run salmon are the largest of the year, so, if you want to fish for that elusive wall hanger salmon, this is the run for you. While we are hoping for the best when it comes to rainfall this year, we are preparing for the worst, so...we will not be taking deposits for late fall king salmon trips and book all trips as tentative based on weather and fishing conditions. So, book your best dates today and we will let you know whether or not it is worth showing up for a week or so before your trip.

Rogue River, Gold Beach, OR- We finished our fall chinook season on the Rogue last week. Low, warm water limited our ability to fish upriver as we prefer. As usual, the Rogue Bay was up and down. Expect upriver fishing to improve over the next few weeks as water temperatures drop. Here are a few pictures from the 2014 season:
