New clients John and Ed were on board with me on November the 12th on the Sacramento river in hopes of catching a salmon. The morning started off great as we didn’t go 75 yards and we had our first fish of the day on ans Ed grabbed the rod while john and myself cleared the other rods and after a short battle it was in the net. After heading back up stream and resetting the rods we were on our way once again. After completing a full pass and starting over again half way through our pass the starboard side rod went down and this time John was reeling away and just a few feet from the net the fish came off, later on we had one more strike and it did not stick and that would be all for the day. Thanks gain guys and thanks for choosing Gold Country Sportfishing.
Return client Robert and first timer Elisa were on board with me to hopefully catch a salmon or two. The morning was cloudy and after setting four rods we were under way and within 50 yards the starboard side went to down and Robert grabbed the rod while Elisa and I cleared the other rods Robert had his hands full as the salmon was putting up a great fight and finally I was able to put the fish into the net. After heading back up to the top of the run we maybe went 100 yards and this time the same rod was hit again and Elisa grabbed the rod like a pro and started the fight and the fish was really putting up a tremendous fight and the fish was not about to give up and Elisa was starting to really strain but finally I was able to get the fish into the net. Later on into to the run one of the back rods went down very hard and I could tell that this was a very large fish unfortunately it came unbuttoned half way to the boat. That would be it for the day. Still a great for these two as the were really excited to catch a couple of King Salmon from the Sacramento river. Thanks again you two………………………………….
Returning client Dennis and Justin and Justin’s two boys were on board in hopes of catching the boys very first King salmon, after setting four rods we didn’t go 75 yards and the back starboard rod was getting hammered so Justin got the rod out of the holder and handed it off to Cody as the fish was putting up a great fight, Cody was doing a great job fighting the salmon and after a great battle between the two I was able to slide the net under the fish. So after heading back up stream and resetting the rods we were under way again. A 100 yards into the pass the same back rod again was hammered and this time Logan had his hands full as he began to battle the salmon, after a great short fight I again was able to slide the net under the salmon, so now we have accomplished what we set out to do, we kept on fishing and the opposite back rod went down very hard and Cody and Justin were on the rod again and Cody was reeling away and half way to the boat the fish came unbuttoned unfortunately. Then later on into the run we had another hard quick grab that didn’t stick. The guys said lets go as not to burn the kids out. A great day with a great group and these boys will have this memory for a really long time….
Return client Mac brought along his lady friend in search of king salmon. After heading down stream in the dark and setting four rods i explained what to do when we get a fish on well it was not 75 yard and the port side rod went down and Mac grabbed the rod while Susan and myself cleared the other rods and soon we had our first fish of the day in the fish bag. Unfortunately this would be the only fish we would land on the day. Still a great cold day on the river with great people. Thanks again to the bot of you…..
Return client John brought along his buddy Paul for a day of salmon fishing on the Sacramento River. The morning started with a hard grab that didn’t stick within the first 50 yards, so we kept going and another 50 yards we had our first fish of the day on as john was fighting a great fish and this fish put up a great fight, and finally it was in the net. We picked up and headed back up river and withing another 75 yards fish number two was on and Paul, was fighting his fish and after a short battle we had two salmon in the fish bag. Again back up stream and another 50 yards another strike and John was into another great fish with a great battle as this fish wasn’t about to give up and now we had three fish in the Reliable fish bag. So back up to the top of the run again and another 75 yards fish number three was hammering the rod and Paul grabbed the rod while john and I cleared the other rods, and after a great battle we now had four kings on the fish bag. John suggested maybe I wanted to catch my fish so I thought heck yea and we continued on and I figured we would fish to the end of the run and if nothing happened we would pack it in, well after a 100 yards the back rod was getting hammered so I grabbed the rod and the fight was on, after john netting the fish we continued on and after a short distance the back rod where I was standing was hit and I grabbed the rod again and this fish put a great but short fight. What an Excellent morning, Eight strikes and six king salmon all by 10:00 in the morning. Thanks you guys for an epic morning on the Sacramento River…….

The day started off with a hard grab that didn’t stick, then further down the line we had a hard take down and this tie it stuck and we landed a very nice king, later on in the morning we had another take down and it stuck and soon we had fish number two in the fish bag. That would be it for the day, still a great day with two great guys…..

We started off with Robert being first up and he landed a 19 pound king, after setting the rods back it was Harry’s turn, his fish weighed 8 and a half pounds, after heading back up stream 200 yards into the pass Roberts rod went off again and this fish turned out to be a 16 pound king, I decided to keep going down stream and BAMM! fish on Harry grabbed the rod and landed the final fish of the morning at 8:40 a fish that weighed 12 and a half pounds. What an incredible morning fishing for King salmon on the Sacramento River. Thanks again guys for the great outing……
