The Lower Yuba River is well known for it’s hard fighting rainbow trout as well as it’s large hatches of aquatic insects. The Yuba boasts strong hatches of mayflies, caddis and stoneflies as well as an exceptional egg drop from the migrating Chinook salmon in the fall months. Because of the abundance of food available to the fish, these trout rival the hardest fighting rainbows anywhere. The rainbows that inhabit this tailwater have become highly selective over the years which makes catching one very rewarding. Anglers have the opportunity to cast a dry fly all seasons of the year here.
