July thru September, we will be trolling for the early run of the Fall Chinook Salmon at the Rogue River Bay, Gold Beach, Oregon where the Rogue River meets the Pacific Ocean. Average weight of the Fall Chinook (King Salmon) is between 15 lbs. and 40 lbs. Limit for the oceans bright Kings is 2 adult Kings per day per angler. Coho (Silvers) Salmon start mid- September through October, averaging 6 lbs. to 15 lbs. They hit hard and will give you a fight.


The Sacramento River is the largest river in California and is home to many fish species including King (Chinook) Salmon, Sturgeon, Striped Bass, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Trout and Steelhead to name just a few. March thru June, we will be fishing for Striped Bass and October thru December 16th, we will be trolling for King Salmon on the Sacramento River, Sacramento, California.


I have over 35 years of boating and fishing experience. We will be fishing from a 2018 – 22.5ft Willie Raptor boat that is very comfortable to fish out of with a spacious interior and deluxe armchair seats. We will be fishing with Lamiglas poles and Tekota reels. I will supply all the bait and fishing supplies.


We will be making lifelong memories fishing on the Rogue River Bay and the Sacramento River. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
