Don Pedro Trout and kokanee 3-5-2022

New clients Athena and Lowen were onboard for the day at Don Pedro on Saturday March the 5th. The weather was really cold, cloudy with snow on the surrounding hills above the lake. The fish seemed to have moved somewhat from the previous trip but they didn’t venture to far as we found them pretty quick. They did land a 12 inch kokanee on the trip and would be the only one for the day, however they did take their 10 Rainbows home with them also A great day with a great couple!!

Don Pedro trout fishing3-2-2022

Long time clients Mike and Chris booked me for the day at Don Pedro in hopes of catching trout ,kokanee and King Salmon. After setting two rods for kokanee and two rods for kings we were under way. This day we had plenty of action on trout however the kokanee were absent as it is very early for them, but the kings are scattered, we did have two hard strikes for the kings unfortunately they did not get hooked up. The Duo did keep their two limits of trout along with releasing several and loosing some as well. A beautiful day on the waters of Don Pedro with two great guys!!

Don Pedro King Salmon and Rainbow Trout 2-25 2022

I made a test run to Don Pedro with Tim to make sure everything worked and to locate fish. After setting four rods we started getting bit. We had two rods out for kings and two for trout and the trout rods were getting bit fairly consistently, for the kings not so much but I did finally land one nice Three and a quarter pound king. It was a beautiful fish and it put up a great fight. The day was cool but we had full sunshine and it was a great day to be out on the water. I am now taking reservations for trips on Don Pedro. We will be starting to look for the kokanee as well.

Sacramento River King Salmon 11-24-2021

Steve and Dave were onboard to hunt down King Salmon. The second pass produced a hard strike and we all went into action of clearing the other rods and Steve brought the fish to the net so I could net it. We had one other strike that did not stick. That was it for the day. Still a great day with great guys.

Sacramento River King Salmon 11-10-2021

Mark and Mark were back for there annual river trip to chase down King Salmon. The year has been a tough one to say the least however they wanted to at least try. The color of the water wasn’t the best we set out in search of. After several passes the second to the last pass I noticed a echo on the screen and almost instantly the back starboard rod was hit and after a short fight we put a smaller male King Salmon in the boat, we made one more pass and that turned out to be the only fish of the day for us as we did have another strike that came up empty. Still a nice cool breezy day with two great guys.

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……
