Shad and Scattered Stripers


Sacramento River:

Dennis Phanner of Sacamento Pro Tackle reported Thursday 7-27 that a few salmon continue to come from the mouth of the American River, stating, “There were between 12 and 20 salmon landed on the opener, but it has trickled down to between 2 or 4 per early morning. The American has been better than average due to the colder water, and those jigging spoons are doing far better than trolling. Bank fishing with heavy spinners has been slow.” Phanner has ordered another 1000 pounds of fresh sardines, and they will be arriving in the shop as soon as possible.


Feather River:

Also on Thursday 7-27 Johnson’s Bait in Yuba City reported a few salmon are coming from Boyd’s Pump and Star Bend by trollers pulling spinners, and a few fish are still found at the Outlet Hole, the overall action is slow with heavy warm water releases out of the Afterbay leaving the river between 75 and 76 degrees. The Sacramento River is still hot as well, and salmon action has been slow. The best action is at the cooler mouth of the American River. There are still a few striped bass taken at night near Shanghai or Star Bends, but most fishermen have satiated on striped bass.
