Sacramento River:
Alan Fong of the Fishermen’s Warehouse in Sacramento reported Sunday 11-13 a bunch of salmon have come through the metropolitan area, and anglers out of Garcia Bend have been landing salmon using the Brad’s Cut Plug behind an 11-inch Pro-Troll Flasher. He said, “One customer hooked six, and he only was able to land one, and I have been advising fishermen to switch out their hooks to Owner Cutting hooks as the salmon’s mouths are getting harder at this late date. There are still nice bright fish showing up.”
Monte Smith of Gold Country Sport Fishing has been modifying the Brad’s Cut Plug system, and he was out on both Friday and Saturday out of Garcia Bend. Friday’s trip produced three salmon along with another strike, and Saturday brought a 14-pound salmon along with two other good strikes and a fish lost within 10 feet of the boat. He said, “The water  is clearing up, and there were far fewer boats on the water on Saturday. I haven’t had any trouble with keeping the salmon on the hook with the standard trebles on the Cut Plugs.” Smith will stay on the salmon on the Sacramento as long as the run is viable.
