North State Update

It's been a great summer so far. Busy.  A lot of our rivers are fishing well, from the smaller freestone tribs, to the big river, we've had a lot of good fishing happening up here. Sure, it's been hot in the middle of the day so getting out early and off early is recommended. I keep hearing reports that fishing on the Lower Sac is "dead", in fact I almost had a client cancel today because he was convinced we'd have crappy fishing with all the "guide reports" he's heard.

No need to wait until the egg drop in October to have some incredible fishing for some oversized trout. Open Days for August: 10, 12-13, 22-26. Click here for more images from the Sac ...
