Fall Fly Fishing is on Cruise Control
Fishing here in Northern CA has been very good this Fall. I have been on the Lower Sac primarily and have spent a few days up on the Klamath recently. The Lower Sac is sitting just above 6k cubes – and the kings continue to pour in and occupy the spawning gravel. With such a large run of kings this year (and fish still on their way up), you should expect the goodness on the Sac to last well into winter this year. There has been no lack of boat pressure out there recently but if you fish the right water, with the right stuff you will get em good.. regardless of the pressure. As soon as the Trinity turns on and the weather gets cooler, most of these boats will be gone.. something i’m looking forward to.
The Kings on the Klamath are in the midst of their spawn as well. This has made for some super grabby fish. There are a ton of half pounders up there grubbin’ on eggs right now along with plenty of Adults (18”-24”). Earlier this week we lost a few impressive fish at the boat.. but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
