Sacramento River summer fishing report May 28, 2016

     If you are the kind of angler that doesn't mind making a lot of cast for a trophy fish, now is your time. Mike Rasmussen reports great action this past week on the giant striped bass that spend their summer in the Sacramento River.  Every trip this week has produced striped bass between 15 and 30 pounds. "The water temp has been perfect here on the upper river, holding at 60 degrees." Mike explains. With the ideal condition on the river and plenty of these hard fighting fish continually showing up to feed heavily on the salmon smolt, the action has been very exciting. Most of the trophy sized striped bass that Mike Rasmussen of SalmonSacRiver.com have come while casting medium to very large glide baits in the early morning hours and again about an hour before dark. Top water action has also been putting these striped bass into mike's fish box every day.  Top water baits such as spooks, pencil papers, and pionters have all been working well if the belly of the lure is white. Most of the action for Mike has been around the Red Bluff, Ca area. Both up and down river from the diversion dam.
