We have had some crazy warm, 70 degree weather here the past couple of days in the Redding area. And I am glad to report that the Sac has started fishing pretty well with the warming conditions. With the river slowly clearing the fish are starting to eat bugs much more consistently – although eggs patterns still seem to be the top producer. The best water for me recently has been the stretch from Bonny to Anderson. If this warm weather trend continues we will hope to see the big spring (brachycentrus) caddis hatches happen a bit early. Last year the caddis started to pop in mid-february, and we were treated to some EPIC dry fly fishing. Don’t miss your chance to get out on this river in the next few months.
Cheers to warmer weather.
One word describes the Klamath River right now, and that is COLD. The water temps have been around 35 degrees at noon. This makes for some pretty lethargic fish. There is no doubt the fish are there – it’s just going to take some warmer water temps to get them in the mood to grab a fly. That being said we have gotten into some solid fish recently. Once the temps raise up a bit there the Klamath should be very good.
