Salmon Opener

Well it wasnt what everyone was hoping for on the opener. There were some fish caught in the Sacramento and Feather rivers but the traffic on shore and on the water were too much and the fish shut down for most. Up north there was a good bite near Red Bluff but down river averaged about 1 fish per 3 boats. CDFW said over 135 boats launched near Chico and only checked in 45 fish and 122 boats launched from Colusa-Knight Landings with only 32 fish checked in. The feather didn’t produce much better numbers. We should see more fish in the next 2 weeks and prime season starting Aug 5th-Aug 10th.
