Well, that wet theme has stayed pretty persistent this winter. Most of the snowpack in the north state is up over 150% now and there is still some more precipitation to come. In the short term, this keeps us inside and off the water as much as we’d like to be but these are all great things for the coming year(s). Juvenile salmon and steelhead do very well in big water years and the trout thrive in it too. We are just ensuring a strong Spring and Summer fishing season and also looking forward to seeing solid returns of Salmon and Steelhead in the coming few years.
The relentless rainfall has abbreviated our Winter Steelhead Season a bit but we were out chasing those small windows whenever they did arrive. The fishable days we did have were very fruitful and there were some magnificent fish caught by our clients. We are now turning the page to trout fishing and we’re looking forward to some great things to come on Lower Sacramento River. As soon as these current rains tapper off the Sac will start to fire up for us. The bugs are waiting to come off as soon as the daytime temps start to increase. The trout will be all over these food sources as soon as they start to present themselves. Spring should deliver us some comfortable weather and superb trout fishing
