Here are the best places to fish in the Sacramento region, Northern California and beyond for the week of June 6, 2016.
▪ AMERICAN RIVER
Flows held steady at 4,000 cfs last week and are expected to remain constant this week. Shad fishing remains good throughout the river, although the section near the Sunrise bridge has been hot, making it a good bet for anglers who don’t have a boat. Rossmoor Bar, Sarah Court, Watt Avenue, Gristmill and Harrington have all produced good fishing. Discovery Park is fishing best on the outgoing tide, especially in the evening. The tide cycle is more favorable this week. Tiny lead-headed jigs with chartreuse grubs, or red and white shad darts, have been working best.
Never miss a local story.
▪ FEATHER RIVER
Shad fishing has slowed on the Feather River near Shanghai Bend, although a few fish are still being caught. The Yuba River remains good for shad, but it also will soon begin to slow. There are lots of smaller striped bass in the Feather that are too small to keep, but are providing plenty of action for anglers looking to catch and release a bunch of fish. Pile worms and minnows are working well. Salmon season opens July 16.
▪ SACRAMENTO RIVER, Red Bluff to Colusa
Shad fishing has slowed down, but fish are still being caught. Striper fishing has slowed above Colusa. Salmon season opens July 16. Anglers are optimistic about the opener based on good catches in the ocean out of San Francisco and Eureka.
▪ SACRAMENTO RIVER, Sacramento
Shad are being caught on the outgoing tide at Discovery Park, but fishing has slowed. This week’s better tides could give anglers another shot at good fishing. Fishing also has slowed near Miller Park. Salmon season opens July 16.
▪ SACRAMENTO RIVER, Verona to Colusa
Small stripers are still being caught at Colusa, Tisdale, Knight’s Landing and Verona. Jumbo minnows, swimbaits and pile worms are tricking what’s left of the spring striper run. Catfish also are being caught near the wing dams below Verona, as well as the Sutter Bypass and at Knight’s Landing, as well as the Butte Creek Slough. Sturgeon fishing has been best from Ward’s to Knight’s Landing.
NORTH COAST RIVERS
▪ CHETCO RIVER, Brookings, Oregon
Fishing is open for sea-run cutthroat trout. Small spinners, such as Rooster Tails, fished in the tidewater riffles are catching fish early in the mornings and in the evenings. Flows were 248 cfs over the weekend, summer time levels.
▪ ROGUE RIVER, Gold Beach, Oregon
Anglers can now keep wild king salmon since June 1, but fishing remains slow. This year's springer run was well below average. With warming water temperatures, and dropping flows, salmon will likely begin holding in the bay sometime in July. The bay fishery for big fall kings runs mid-July through September.
▪ ROGUE RIVER, Grants Pass, Oregon
Hot, hot days over 100 degrees up here. Still some spring salmon being caught in the middle section, and some above that, mostly on plugs and some on bait. As of June 1, anglers can keep wild salmon or hatchery below Fish Creek ferry boat ramp.
▪ RUSSIAN RIVER
Shad are still in the river and available very early or late in the evening when the water-users are off the river and things calm down. The smallmouth bass fishing is also good early and late for those throwing minnow-imitating lures.
▪ SMITH RIVER
Sea-run cutthroat trout are the only game in town, but they are fun and often overlooked, according to WON Staff Writer Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing, who said that guide Mick Thomas is running trip out of Hiouchi and using small spinners for good action. Salmon won’t arrive here until late September.
▪ KLAMATH RIVER, Hornbrook
With flows of 1,280 cfs at Iron Gate Dam, the Upper Klamath is in good shape for steelhead and wild rainbows. Nightcrawlers fished below divers, small plugs, and flies all are working. Hot weather has sparked the salmon fly hatch.
▪ KLAMATH RIVER, Happy Camp
Flows Sunday at Seiad Valley were 2,510 cfs, good for trout and steelhead fishing. A heat wave in Happy Camp has kept many anglers away except for first light and late in the evening.
▪ KLAMATH RIVER, Klamath Glen
Flows on Sunday at Terwer were 9,940 cfs. Anglers have begun anchoring and running spinners for spring salmon, but so far fishing has been slow. The river remains in perfect shape for springers, but so far only a handful of fish have been caught by the guide boats.
▪ TRINITY RIVER
Flows at Lewiston Dam dropped below 2,900 cfs for the first time in more than a month last week. They are expected to continue to drop over the next several weeks. No salmon have been reported yet, as the river has been too high to effectively salmon fish. Expect salmon to show up in fishable numbers by mid-June. Some brown trout have been caught between Lewiston and Douglas City on Rapalas.
NORTH COAST LAKES
▪ CLEAR LAKE
Crappie on mini-jigs or cut bait for catfish continues to be the best bet as the lake transitions into the summer bite. Drop-shot a wacky rigged RoboWorm in 16 feet of water.
▪ LAKE BERRYESSA

▪ LAKE SONOMA
Largemouth bass and a few smallmouth bass can be found by covering water with a LuckyCraft BDS3 in an American Shad pattern early up the Warm Springs arm.
▪ LAKE ALMANOR
Insect hatches are going off all over both basins and both the trout and bass are responding. Late spring time can produce some of the best bites here.
▪ BAUM LAKE

▪ HAT CREEK
Try some green drakes, nymphs and dries or big salmon flies as it gets warmer.
▪ MCCLOUD RIVER
Rubber legs and anything black have been working for some nice trout.
▪ PIT RIVER
Waters are still high and fast so be careful out there. Big, dark flies work here. Try big black nymphs, popper Johns or a Mercer Tb Pt Prince.
▪ SHASTA LAKE
Both the trout and salmon can be found in front of the dam. Lures worked best for trout while rolled shad and anchovies by the dam and up in Dry Creek were best for salmon. Bass are 15 to 20 feet and a little deeper. Chartreuse colored spinner blades and Kyte Xs will find the bigger bass from Packers Bay out to the Pit arm. Or go catfishing with chicken livers and hot dogs. There are also crappie to be found on jigs and tubes off shallow points and in the coves.
▪ TRINITY LAKE
Has not been a good option due to launch conditions and lower water levels.
▪ WHISKEYTOWN RESERVOIR
You’ll find steady action for trout limits and a few brook trout. Kokes to 14 inches and are healthy while rainbows to 18 inches were taken at 40 feet in the main body on the south side of the 299 Bridge on spinners and Hoochies with pink beads and a short 6- to 8-inch leader behind 4-inch sling blades.

Bass fishing is best with Senkos or drop-shot plastics after a brief window for topwater in the early morning. Catfish are roaming the shallows, and chicken livers, nightcrawlers, or anchovies are the top baits. The new ADA walkway at the South Shore is nearly completed, and the boat rental dock and two of the courtesy docks have moved over with the covered berth also to be moved this week.
▪ DON PEDRO
Quality trout and kokanee are here for the taking, but you have to hunt around to find the bait schools holding the gamefish. Running heavy spoons at depths from 25 to 30 feet is best as the fish are gorging on shad. Bass fishing is best in the morning with topwater lures before dropping to the bottom with plastics on the Texas rig or drop-shot. All three launch ramps are open with the lake at 76% of capacity.
