Viera’s Resort near Isleton reported
good action for salmon on Saturday, but
things slowed down on Sunday 9-8,
perhaps due to the opening of the NFL
season. There are some BIG dime bright
fish moving through and hopefully we see
this uptrend continue!
Field scout Don Nevis of the
California Inland Fisheries Foundation
took his first trip for salmon on the
Sacramento River near Clarksburg, and he
was rewarded with this huge limit at 35
Nevis and big limit left.
Monte Smith of Gold
Country Sport Fishing took his father
out on the Sacramento River out of
Garcia Bend on Tuesday for this quality
salmon. Smith likes to troll spinners,
particularly out of his new Willie Boat.
Dennis Phanner of Sacramento Pro Tackle
reported overall slow fishing in the
metropolitan area with only the
‘occasional fish’ taken at the mouth of
the American River on Tuesday 9-10.
The best area action has been at the
mouth of the Feather near Verona with
spinners or Flatfish or by jigging
spoons near the Freeport Bridge in the
evenings. They are getting another batch
of fresh sardines next Thursday on
September 19th. Interested anglers can
get on the call list by contacting the
