Weather is going to be way to nice this weekend…Take advantage and go fish. Personally I am taking the weekend off and flying out to the Notre Dame vs. ASU game. Big game for the Irish!
Feather River 
Every time I go here I swear I am never going back…same deal. I went. I swear I will not be back….Here is the skinny though, with some great returns the last few years the crowds and out of town guides have shown up so the river is pretty damn crowded in the low flow. Usually by November the high flow starts fishing, spreading out guides and wade fishermen. With the low flows and warmer water temps in the High Flow the salmon have piled up into the low flow in search of cooler water so the steelhead are not holding like they usually do in the high flow….So, the high flows is not a great option though you can run into fish moving up river. Couple that with the fact we need fresh fish to give the ones in the rivers mandables a break….I won’t be back for 2 weeks minimum. Rain and some colder weather will turn on the high flows and those late fall fish should move a little slower and hold better in the lower river…then I WILL BE BACK.
