Almost Striper Time!
It sure has been a phenomenal winter steelhead season, and it's hard to believe it's almost April already! For the third winter in a row, dry weather has led us to fish Humboldt County rivers nearly the entire season and for the most part, our rivers were stuffed with beautiful steelhead. Thanks for all of you that came out fishing with me, I had great time and I hope you did too! I wrap up my season next week with a couple of trips and while most rivers close after the 31st, a few remain open. If conditions are decent, these rivers can offer outstanding and completely uncrowded fishing in the first half of April.
Next up for me are Sacramento/Feather River Striped Bass. I am fishing there from April 13th to May 1st out of my power boat. This is a super fun fishery with lots of hookups, warm weather and strong, great eating fish. Perfect for the whole family! I have 5 open days for that time period: 16th, 17th, 23rd, 27th and 28th, however I may extend my season further into May if there is enough interest. I can fish up to 6 people, but will take groups as small as 2. If the group is less than 3, I reserve the right to fill the remaining seats.
The pic attached is a huge Striper we caught on the Sac system a few years ago. Certainly this is an exceptionally large fish, but it shows you what's possible.....
