I had a chance to fish the Feather River out of Yuba City with Manny Saldana of MSJ Fishing Guide Service. And as you can see from the above photos, it was epic! We’ll have a full story in the June issue, but here are some videos from our experience.
First, here’s Saldana showing us one of his favorite knots to handle these very feisty fish.
Next, watch our correspondent Mark Fong take on a 20-pound hen on the now fast-moving currents of the Feather:
Here’s Fong releasing his hen so she can continue to spawn and keep up the river’s striper population.
