Eastern Plumes Creek Fly Fishing Report

The Premier Fly Fishing Guide Service for the Northern Sierra;

Eastern Plumas Creeks: Most of the creeks that flow into the Middle Fork Feather River are in prime shape right now, and the creekin season begins. The harder the access is, the better the fishing, not just now, but all through the season. Which reminds me of lessons learned by my Dad in the 70’s where we would venture down steep slopes to sections of the East Branch of the Feather River off Hwy 70 and never see a human foot print. Fishing the creeks does not require technical rigging or exact imitations on the end of your line. These wild trout are eager to feed as their season is often much shorter than your typical salmonid of a Sierra freestone river. Attractors, terrestrials, and caddis patterns are all that you need. I’ve been using the Redington Classic Trout 8’6” 3 weight matched with the 2/3 Zero reel and it is the perfect tool for plying creeks – and it won’t break the bank. I also use this set up for my guests on guided trips where dry fly fishing is the norm. So many bodies of water are perfect right now that it’s difficult to choose which one to fish. Go with your heart, and I’ll see you where the wild things are…
