Sacramento River, Lower Professional Review and Guide
"The fly fishing community recognizes “the Sac” from Lake Shasta to Sacramento as the “lower river.” In this section, we target the prime territory from Redding to Red Bluff, a stretch offering big water and big fish. The wide and sweeping river runs over huge gravel bars and shallow riffles and through deep pools. Types of Fish: King salmon (chinook), steelhead, rainbow trout, shad, and striped bass. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping."
