Lower Sacramento River Fishing Report

Well, it might sound like a broken record but the Lower Sac remains lights out good. There haven't been many lulls in the fishing at all here as of late. I had the chance to guide a fella who grew fishing the river with his grandfather and father. He had some really neat stories of the "good ol' days". He's pushing 70 years old now and has hundreds of days floating and fishing the Lower Sac. Today was the "most productive" day he had ever had out here.. PMDs are still the main attraction.

Lower Sacramento River Report

The River has fished very well over the past few weeks. A lot of my sports have been spoiled by the ridiculously good fishing. Usually, the drift has to be perfect and hook sets have to be quick to have success out here. Recently, the fish have been damn near hanging themselves, eating with reckless abandon. Expect the bite to stay consistent through the month of May. Everything has been on the menu recently.. Caddis, PMDs, Baetis, Yellow Sallies, Big Stones, Little Stones, Eggs.. Pick the right patterns in those flavors, put em in the right spot and you'll have a hell of a good time out there. My next open days are: May 17-19, 25-27, 30-31.
