Rogue River, Gold Beach, OR - We have seen a few good days on the Rogue Bay with reasonably good fishing over the past few days for fat ocean bright salmon like the ones below. Cooler days in the Medford area dropped water temperatures and the kings are starting to move out of the bay. As of this morning, large numbers of salmon are moving through the river behind our house. A scheduled release from Lost Creek Reservoir later this week will drop the water temperature even more and pull most of the salmon out of the bay and move our fishing upriver into the national forest where I prefer to fish away from the crowds. Remember, this is still early. Most of the salmon are still in the ocean, so expect spikes in bay productivity over the next 6-8 weeks.

Sacramento River, Red Bluff, CA - Fishing was really productive over the weekend for our friend Jason Thatcher (see pictures below). This is really good fishing for early August. With most of the Sacramento salmon still in the ocean scattered between Fort Bragg and the Golden Gate, this is shaping up to be an awesome year for salmon on the Sacramento. We will return to Red Bluff to fish the peak of the season in September and early October. Most weekends are already booked, so, please make your reservations early to catch your big Sacramento River salmon.

Meanwhile on the Sacramento near Red Bluff, CA....The king salmon are here in numbers we haven't seen this early in years! If it's this good now, you can only imagine how good the peak of the run in September will be!!

Here are a couple of pictures from Aug. 8 & 9 sent to us by our friend Jason Thatcher. We will be back fishing the Sacramento Sept. 4th. If you can't wait until September, please call or text Jason at 916-997-2765 to get in on this awesome catching NOW!
