Capt. Brown has been guiding the Lower Sacramento between Colusa and Red Bluff for striped bass. He reports that most fish are in the 5-10 pound range with a few smaller and a few trophies also in the mix. Conditions have been low and clear in most places though there are areas where the visibility is a bit better and the water will pick up its normal foggy green. He is dealing with low flows- about half the water as usual- conditions are more like September or late summer already. Most fish have been coming on standard striper flies and heavy sinking lines but he is also fishing a fair amount of lighter lines as well. He expects fishing to remain strong into the winter with the peak of the season August through October.
