End Is Near For Feather River King Fishing

Manuel Saldana Jr. of MSJ Guide Service announced he’s packing it in for Chinook fishing as the Feather River’s levels are now deemed too low.

Here’s Manuel’s final report:

“(Department of Water Resources) just dropped the river flow to 800 cfs on the Feather River yesterday 11/6/14. So that wraps it up for the king salmon for me for 2014. I now will switch to stripers in the Delta for the next few months. We all need to pray for some rain. I hope to see everyone at the ISE show in Sacramento this year.  If you can stop by my booth, I would like to meet some you in person that I have not yet met.”

Here a few of the final kings caught in the Feather this season:

Meanwhile, Scott Feist of Feisty Fish Guide Service is also gearing up for Delta stripers:

The bite has been solid for the past few weeks and it should remain good until the holidays are over. I fish stripers many ways in the Delta; from live bait, spooning, casting and trolling. The fall is beautiful in the Delta with some amazing days of fishing. I am typically guiding waterfowl, but with the low water situation, I will be chasing stripers! If you would like to spend a day fishing delta stripers or would like some more information please give me a call!!!
