Sacramento River King Salmon 11-8-2021

Return clients John and Don we back onboard with me on November the 8th to hunt down some King Salmon. The morning started out on the first pass with a short quick strike that didn’t stick unfortunately. After rebaiting the lures we started our troll again and this time the starboard side rod was hit really hard and peeling line off the reel, John grabbed the rod while Don and myself cleared the other rods. I slowed the boat down and the fight was on john was fighting the fish perfectly and after a short fight I was able to slide the net under the 18 pound buck. That was it for the day, but a great day with two great guys…………. Thanks again !!!!

Rainy Day on the Sacramento River 10-21-2021

Returning clients Kim, Ryan and Julie were onboard with me on the Sacramento River on October the 21st to chase down some King Salmon. The weather man called for light showers early in the morning clearing by 8:00 but he seriously got it wrong, everyone had rain gear but with no top on the boat we still got wet. I mean it poured for several hours. We had no bites then around ten thirty the port side rod got hit and Julie picked up the rod and line was burning off the reel at a fast pace that I was un aware of and she said uh oh! we both looked at the spool on the reel and it was near the end, she got the fish turned and started gaining ground and the words no guide wants to hear…. Its gone! so we regrouped and continued on and soon we had another fish on and as she was reeling this fish and again it was gone. UGH! then a short time later we had another hard strike and this time Ryan grabbed the rod and this one made it to the boat a really nice 20 pounder. That was it for the day as they needed to be off the water by 12;30 Thanks again every one still a great wet day……

Jumbo Rainbows and King salmon at Don Pedro 9-15-2021

New clients DJ, Fred, Don and Caleb were onboard on the 15th of September. This trip was to hopefully catch eight year old Caleb his first fish and a big fish on the is trip. It wasn’t ten minutes after setting the rods that we had our first fish on and of course Caleb would be up first and after some coaching he landed his first fish and it was a nice fish at that. The day would prove to be just a phenomenal day of catching, all the fish were just big beautiful fish and we found a pod of fish that were just very hungry and at about 10:45 we had 15 fish and also about 11:15 the port side rod was hit and we only needed a couple more fish for four limits, it was Calebs turn and the other guys said he could handle it by himself well well he did but no one could believe the size of the fish that came up from the depths and this young man did great with some coaching by myself and after netting it it weighed six and a half pounds what a day it was. Great fishing for great people and a memory for all on this special day. Thanks guys and thanks for choosing Gold Country Sportfishing!!
