At least once a year, I go fly fishing on the Sacramento River in Redding. The Fly Shop handles everything; tackle, the right flies for that day, lunch, AND great guides. Tradition requires a dinner at Jack's steak house. As good a steak as you will find in the Bay Area.

This river has excellent year round fishing for trout and seasonal for salmon, but from Redding to Red Bluff the access to the river and fishing from the shore is limited to a few locations which tend to be crowded and overfished. If you have a boat or hire a guide the fishing can be very good.

I have gone back to the Lower Sac for one day float trips three times over the last three years and I have to say that this part of the river provides excellent fishing and lots of fun. Last week's fish averaged 17" and were great fighters and the breeze on the river was just enough to cool down the... More

This is one of the premier fishing places on the planet. You do not need a guide or a boat to fish.You can do quite well from the shore with either lures or live bait. It is also great for fly fishing. The trout will give you a run for your money, the salmon are great and the steel head... More

A beautiful example of God's work. Only problem is since the Uglification of California Act it's hard to see it from the streets anymore. :(

Redding has done a remarkable job of making the Sacramento River a pleasant focal point as it passes through the city. In addition to being a pristine clear river, the city fathers have developed the city property along the river into an exceptionally inviting place for their citizens and visitors. There are marinas, parks, museums, hiking trails, playgrounds, and interesting... More

2 day guided fly fishing trip from The Fly Shop in Redding. Given the drought conditions, the fishing was excellent. Guides are very knowledgeable and put us on fish all day. great fun!

I am from Reno and anything over 65 degrees is considered summer-ish. Redding doesnt have much to do when it isnt "summer time". I think the city as a whole doesnt consider it summer until July. I will say though that due to the lack of other activities this is a great little journey to take. The Sacramento River still... More
