Sacramento River Fishing Guide Service


Fish for Salmon, Steelhead And Trophy Trout on the Sacramento River!

Hello I am Mike Bogue

The Sacramento River has become one of the premier fisheries on the entire West Coast.  We have significant runs of both Steelhead and Salmon along with both Stripers and Shad.   In addition, the Sacramento River has become one of the top rivers for Trophy Rainbow Trout with many fish in the 5-6 pound range.  Nowhere outside of Canada and Alaska will you find such large Trout in these numbers.

Give me a call and lets discuss your next adventure.  Depending on the time of year we can focus in on one particular species or do a combo trip.  I can assure you that once you fish the upper Sacramento you will be back.



We get strong runs of Chinook Salmon in the Sacramento River. These fish can be caught between June and January with the peak season being in the fall of the year.


These large sea run Rainbow Trout are in the river from about January through June. The can run well over 10 pounds and are an amazing fighting fish.

Rainbow Trout

Fast becoming the most popular fish in the Sacramento to Fish for, our Trophy Rainbow Trout can easily go over 5 pounds and are found in the river all year long.


Shad might not be the best table fare but what they lack in flavor is made up in their aggressiveness. Pound for pound these fish are definitly the most agressive fish in the river.
