The Sac is Going OFF

The past couple of weeks on the Lower Sac have been VERY GOOD. Flows have been stable at 4500 cubes and the river is continuing to slowly clear, currently with 3-4 of visibility down towards Anderson. With the milky water the fish still seem to be poded up pretty good. The key to success is locating those pods and staying on them. Chances are you'll poke multiple fish from the same spot.

The theme on the Sac these days continues to be quality over quantity. These boys put some great fish in the net. Temps are going to be climbing into the high 60s the next few days. If the river...

Winter on the Lower Sac

Winter on the Lower Sas is one of the best times of the year to hunt for big fish. The past week has proven just that. We haven't been getting big numbers of fish like we were the previous few months - but we are getting some really quality fish. The river conditions haven't changed much in the past week - there is still about 2 feet of visibility on the top float. Check out some of the fish that have made it to the net recently.. ...
