     ATTENTION ALL CALIFORNIA SALMON ANGLERS!!!  THE TIME IS NOW!!!  SalmonSacRiver.com salmon fishing guides Mike Rasmussen and John Pearl are taking advantage of a very large Pacific Ocean storm that will be rolling into the California Coast Line as early as Thursday October 13, 2016.  With five consecutive days of rain scheduled to hit the Northern California coastal rivers, you can expect these rivers to rise dramatically over the weekend and possibly into early next week. As Mother Nature intends it to be, the wild Smith River has a very heathy and large king salmon fishery. Not having a dam to impede migration and water conditions, the Smith River is like taking a step back in time to fish for a salmon run that is still very much intact and thriving.  "It's real simple." Says Mike Rasmussen of SalmonSacRiver.com.  "When the river rises, the salmon charge up, when the river drops they hold in the deepest darkest, holes they can find.  Then they wait for the next rain event sending them farther up the river."  Rasmussen points out.  Mike goes on to explain the dynamics of the Smith River and its simplicities, with very predictable run timing when it comes to the giant chinooks that come through the system every year, makes it a highly productive salmon fishery, with the most amazing backdrop in California.  The unseasonably large Pacific Storm that is predicted with a high probability of accuracy and the October full moon cycle reaching its peak mid week next week, adding to the instinctual drive of the king salmon, there is a high probability of a "perfect storm" scenario brewing for the salmon fishing guides of the North Coast.

     SalmonSacRiver.com with Sacramento River salmon fishing guides John Pearl and Mike Rasmussen are taking the rare and unheard of opportunity to take their 22ft and 23ft foot jet sleds over to the Smith River to accommodate the bigger groups and to  allow more people to be able to experience the Smith Rivers beauty and exceptionally large chinook salmon.  "We will be on site Saturday October 15, 2016 and fishing the Smith River on the drop all week and possibly  longer.  River conditions permitting of course." Salmon fishing guide John Pearl said with a smile. "We also will be bringing along a drift boat we will be using when the river falls below 8ft." Reminded Pearl.   Typically the Smith River receives a good shot of rain for the first time after halloween and the thousands of wild king salmon waiting for the water to rise, congregate in the masses from the Sand Hole to the Pacific Ocean. Just milling around waiting on the rain and ripening up for the spawn. Let me just tell you, from experience  that when the amount of fish that are waiting for this weather to cool off and rain to come, finally get cut loose by a rising Smith River, the plug bite explodes as the masses move through the lower river and into one of the forks of the Smith River.  Double digit days that can exceed 20 kings up to 60 pounds and even larger are not uncommon if the conditions are right. The plug bite is phenomenal on the smith with most grabs noticeably more violent then those same bites on the Sacramento River. "We wait all year for this event, and drop anything to go." Says Pearl. Explaining that by far this is the best king salmon fishing in California hands down and the kings can be huge some days as waves of salmon continue to push through before the water drops out and they can't gain access to some of the steep watersheds that surround the Smith River system. 

     SalmonSacRiver.com salmon fishing guide Mike Rasmussen is excited to finally be able to take his clients out in the power boat to catch these kings all week. "We can finally offer the most amazing salmon fishing experience in the state of California to more people then just  a couple of  our real good clients who lock up the dates every year. With two big aluminum jet sleds available to our clients  with bigger groups, we can have groups as big as ten or as small as two clients on any given day. John Pearl and Mike Rasmussen have decided to fish for seven days over on the Smith River. Out of those seven days five days are available for reservations and bookings for the best salmon fishing in California hands down. The price remains the same for SalmonSacRiver.com clients at $200 dollars a seat. The available dates are from Monday October 17, 2016 through Thursday October 21, 2016. Mike will start taking deposits for reservations immediately, and he does not expect the remaining dates to b available for long as word spreads about the ideal conditions that lay ahead for the Smith River.
