CALIFORNIA: Sacramento/Feather Rivers – Fat Fish Around 16 pounds

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

On Tuesday, Scott Feist was back over on the Feather for the third day in a row.

On Sunday he was fishing as high as Boyds but today was on the lower river due to the dropping flows. Once again Scott reported limits of fat fish to around 16 pounds. Scott says over the past three days they have released close to 50 fish on top of their eazzzzy limits. With the dropping flows he expects that Wednesday will be the last day of fishing on the Feather (until flows get boosted again) and he will be switching over to the Sac.

Joel Shangle from Northwest Wild Country Radio out of Seattle WA from holding a 16 pound hen caught today with Scott on the Feather River today.

Speaking of the Sac, Dave Jacobs also reported limits on the lower Sac today. he was fishing below Grimes and reports that flows here too are dropping and the fish are backing down the river a few miles each day. There are a few spawns taking place but with fresh fish still pushing up there is some time left.
Bob Bradbury of Johnson’s Bait and Tackle in Yuba City reported excellent striper action on both the Sacramento and Feather Rivers. He went out on Saturday, and they limited out quickly on live minnows. They have been selling thousands of their hardy minnows per day to meet the huge demand. The word of the great bite was leaked on Saturday, and the river was loaded with boats on Sunday, putting down the bite a bit on the Feather. The flows have decreased, and the fish should be running back downstream into the Sacramento. Anchovies, sardines, and pile worms are working on the Sacramento River. He said, “There are a lot of fish in the system.”
