Topline Sport Fishing – Sacramento

Topline Sport Fishing invites you for a day of fishing fun on the Sacramento River, where the waters are prolific and fish are biting year-round! The river is known for its excellent angling opportunities and there are many species to target, no matter your level of experience.

Captain Nelson Vineyard has been exploring the local waters for decades, which puts him in the best position to show you around. Whether you choose a half day or a full day trip, Chinook Salmon and Rainbow Trout are the stars of the show. They come in good sizes, they’re strong fighters, and what’s more, they’re as tasty as fish get.

Of course, to get to the best fish hideouts, you need a reliable boat, and captain’s 23’ aluminum boat fits the standards perfectly. You can bring up to 3 more people with you on the trip, and there will be enough space for everyone. Twin 115 HP Suzuki engines will easily propel you to your next Salmon catch, and there’s a live bait well and a fighting chair on the boat if you need it.

You’ll use top-notch Okuma, Phoenix, and Penn gear, and both lures and live bait are provided. If you’d like, the first mate will clean and fillet the catch, so that you can cook it using your favorite recipe as soon as you come home. For all the mate’s efforts, tips are welcome.

Everything fishing-related will be provided, save for the fishing license, which you should buy before the trip. A supply of drinks and snacks is always a good idea, as well as lunch, if you’re going on a full day expedition.

Salmon fishing is an exciting and memorable experience, so if you’re planning a birthday surprise or family vacation, Topline Sport Fishing should be on your to-do list!

I grew up fishing and boating, and I have over 2 decades of experience under my belt. I was lucky enough to be mentored by great fishermen and decided to become a licensed charter boat captain. Today, I put my customers on memorable fishing action that will get them a sizeable fish to go with their satisfied smile.

The only thing that kept the day from being perfect was that the weather/wind was horrid. Despite the wind (10-20mph) and waves,...
