Summer Fishin’

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. BIG NEWS 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...

Northern State Update

We just got done with a great week of fishing on the Lower Sac. This powerhouse of a trout river continues to serve up great fishing, day in and day out. The weather has been in the 70s, making days on the water as comfortable as they come. If you have the time to sneak away for a day or two, a float on the Lower Sac is highly recommended. There are a lot of good options in the North State right now. The Upper Sac, McCloud and Pit are all in good shape and fishing well. With the lack of snowpack in the mountains, these smaller streams are going to fish best early in the season. Take advantage of them soon. -- Click here to see more images from the...

Lower Sac Fishing Report

The tout fishing on the Lower Sac remains stellar. The pressure is getting lighter on the river and the fish are still grubbin'. We've seen big Salmonflies, little Yellow Sallies, Hydropsyche Caddis, and PMDs all coming off throughout the day in pretty good numbers. There have been boat loads of PMDs coming off the past few evenings, with a few fish starting to look up. The average size of fish on the river right now is impressive, especially up in town. There are a ton of quality fish that inhabit this big tailwater. I took a few groups out last week that hadn't fished the Sac before and they were blown away. The flows are up 7,500 cubes which is just about perfect. Flows between 7k-10k are ideal for spring...

April Update

The Lower Sac has continued to kick out some great fishing over the past few weeks. The hatches have gotten better as the flows have started to come up. The river is currently sitting at 7k cubes and will likely stay around this number as summer rolls around. For those of you who were concerned about the river "closure" please don't worry. The river is only going to be closed from the HWY 44 bridge up, which really only takes away about a  mile of trout water from us. There is over 30 miles of great trout water below this, so there is no need to worry. This closure will be lifted on August 1st. This is one of the best options in California for wild rainbow trout that will...

Lower Sac Update and Openings

The trout fishing on the Lower Sacramento River is as good as you will see it right now. We've had some banner days over the past few weeks. The bugs are coming off a little better on the cloudy, overcast days with some fish looking up in certain spots of the river. PMDs, Caddis and March browns have been the main items on the menu. We are expecting the fishing to stay solid as long as there is no major bump in flow (which is highly unlikely due to our states water scarcity). Now is the time to be up here. I have this coming Saturday and Sunday (April 18-19) available. Jump on it if you want to get in on some of the best trout fishing of the year. Follow this...

Lower Sacramento River Report and Closure?

The Lower Sac has continued to kick out some great fishing over the past week. Still, we have yet to see the bigger hatches that the spring usually gives up. There are some spring Caddis still around, PMDs, March Browns and a few Salmonflies, but not in great numbers yet. Probably a symptom of the low water and more silt covering the gravel than usual.. Despite the lack of big bugs hatching the fish are still very healthy and eating well. Check out some more photos from the river here Other River News: California Department of Fish and Wildlife proposed closure to a section of the Lower Sacramento River. Some interesting news coming from the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Follow the link above to read the entire article. Apparently, DFW thinks it will...

River Update

The Lower Sacramento River continues to fish well despite the weird weather we've had. The hatches have yet to really get going but the fish have been eating well, regardless. The fish seem pretty podded up in certain spots of the river so it is important to know where these spots will be. Still anticipating the Dry fly thing to happen soon. We've had some fun throwing big flies to some of the river Bass lately too. Fun time of year for multiple species out here. The Lower floats have been pretty vacant of boats.. although the fish are a little smaller down there, most days they are plentiful and the solitude is hard to beat. It's a great time of year to be on this big tailwater. Click here for...

Lower Sac Report

We've had some banner days on the Sac in the past couple of weeks. Typical Lower Sac for the springtime (minus the big hatches). A few of the days have made us work hard in the mornings - usually after lunchtime the fish start to chow with more conviction and seem to hold on a bit longer. Quick grabs mean you've gotta have a quick hammer. Timely hook sets have been rewarded. Due to the lack of bugs still, the dry fly thing hasn't really kicked off yet. Until then we'll keep watching that indicator go down - often. I've still got some days open at the end of the month and days open in April. Inquire for details. CLICK HERE TO SEE SOME MORE IMAGES FROM THE RIVER!   There's a new...

Lower Sac Update

Spring weather is here and the status of fishing on the Lower Sac has been bumped to Excellent. We've had some great days out on the water recently. Daytime temperatures have been in the high 70s, boat traffic has been light and the fish have been eager. Despite the lack of hatches, the rainbows have been aggressive to our bugs. With the temperatures forecasted to get up into the 80s in the coming weeks i'm expecting the Caddis, March Browns and PMDs should start to come off thick. This should provide for some dry fly as well as some bomber nymph fishing. These three bugs will drive the fishing through March and well into May. The best days are still ahead of us. Come and get some. Check out some more...
