Lower Sacramento River Report
The great fishing on the Lower Sacramento River has continued over the past week. The main bite has been starting in the late morning and lasting into the early afternoon. PMDs have been the staple bug recently and when these plump, pale Mayflies start to pop for a few hours, the bite has been VERY GOOD. I have had a lot of first time fly fishers out recently and they have had no problem hooking plenty of fish during this mid-day hatch window. The weather has been great too, a lot of days in the 70’s and 80’s with a slight breeze to keep us cool. If there is a better place to be fishing for big, wild rainbow trout this spring, I’m not aware of it.
I still have a few openings next week and some available days in May as well. Set up a day or two to let me show you the Lower Sac. You’ll be glad you did.
Hudson’s first time ever touching a fly rod and the kid puts multiple fish over 20″ in the net. Tough to fake that smile.
