Upper and Lower Update
The Upper Sacramento River has been fishing very well as of late. The flows are low and the big hatches are just starting. The abundance of Golden Stones and Salmonflies has had the fish looking up most of the day, so prospecting with a good dry/dropper setup has stuck a lot of fish. The water is already getting very warm on the lower end of the river so be super careful while handling and releasing your fish. As the water temps increase, playing a fish to death becomes more likely. Tread lightly.

Fishing remains good to VERY GOOD for anglers who can mend, get that oh so important “dead drift” and set a hook. There have been blanket PMD hatches the last few hours of light which has provided for some kick ass dry fly fishing to big green noses. The Hydropsyche Caddis are becoming more and more prevalent as well. Don’t let the summer heat deter you from this river this summer – fishing can be epic.
