The temperatures are climbing back into the 90s starting tomorrow. Redding is far from the coolest place in the summertime but the Lower Sac will continue to kick out some great fishing opportunities. Even during those triple digit days we see some of the biggest, hottest fish of the year. The McCloud has also been a good option.. we had some great fishing there last week. The thunderstorms that rolled through had the mayflies going good, specifically the Green Drakes. Fish were looking up most of the day. The Golden Stones are right around the corner.
The top mile of river (From Posse Grounds to hwy 44) has been closed for over a month now and will reopen on August 1. The past few summers, August has been provided some of the best fishing of the year. I am expecting the big fish in this section to be very willing when it reopens on August 1st. Fishing should be epic. I still have plenty of open days in early August..
