Sacramento Kicks Out Trout
To 24 Inches
REDDING - The section of the
Sacramento River from Keswick Dam
down to Anderson Park has been
providing incredible winter rainbow trout
fishing. The average day on the water with
a guide produces 25 to 50 fish and those
fish range from 14 to 24 inches and 5
pounds on the large end.
Gear anglers are using a variety of egg
and smolt imitating offerings such as
cured roe, beads, puff balls, glo bugs and
wee Dick Nite Spoons. A combination of
back trolling and side drifting is working
for the gear heads.
If you’d like a crack at some wild
rainbows in the Redding area with
conventional gear, give Robert Weese of
Northern California Guide Service or Mike
Bogue of Mike Bogue’s Guide Service a
call. They are two of the best sticks on the
river and will work hard to get you fish. To

On the fly fishing front, The Fly Shop
reports steady flows and happy anglers.
Most of the trout are coming on a variety
of mayfly and caddis fly nymph imitations,
but there are still some late arriving
salmon spawning. If you spot spawners
toss egg imitations down current of them

Go Big With the Arashi Series of Glide Baits!
World-Class Trout & Bass Fishing,
2 for 1
He said, “We fished flooded Liberty
island in 2 to 3 feet of water with glide
baits. It was a perfect day over cast with
light rain and 5 mph wind. The water is
47 degrees and stained on outgoing, but
it clears up on incoming tide. We had
two triples and lots doubles, landing over
30 stripers to 14 pounds on glide baits.
We caught three stripers in the 12- to
14-pound range, but you had to ‘dead-
stick’ the glidebaits in the cold water.
“There were no giants on this trip, but
it is going to happen soon. My nephew,
Michael ‘Bubs’ Fong, was out there on
Saturday on his kayak, and the water
warmed up to the 51/52-degree range. He
threw huge Megabass Megadog topwater
lures all day long, and he released a
23-pound striper and lost another over 30
pounds at the side of the kayak,” noted
“The grass is gone, and we could see
down 6-inches on the low tide, but it
cleared up to 3 feet of visibility on the
high tide. I threw that big Megadog in the
colder water earlier in the week without
results, but I am going back out this
week,” Fong concluded.
