Manuel Saldana Jr. of Yuba City-based MSJ Guide Service sent us this update on king salmon fishing:
The Sacramento River is kicking out some beautiful kings salmon. I can’t say it’s kicking out a lot at the moment, but when you hook one it’s a quality fish. There’s a good amount of king salmon at the Golden Gate staging and ready to make the run up river to spawn. The boys in saltwater have been getting limits! Fishing should definitely improve up river in the next few weeks.
Here’s David Jr. from Southern California with his first-ever river king, which weighed 25 pounds. This king bit on eggs cured in Liquid ProCure in the Redd Hot color.
