Feather River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Nor Cal Fly Guides Reports on 1.18.18

  • Fishing: fair to good 
  • Clarity: 3ft off color
  • Flows: Low 1000, High 1800

The upper stretch is finally open and is fishing very well but has been extremely crowded, below that has been very quiet with crowds and enough fish to get you steelhead fix. I do have a few tricks up my sleeve this time of year and it has been paying off for those willing to hang with me and not be in the crowds. We are hooking 6-10 fish daily and seeing the typical feather river steelhead 18-22" with some nice winter fish in the mix, with almost no fishing pressure from bankies or boats. Cant beat that. Nymphing has been working very well, but swinging has been producing too. Look for this place to light up any day now, and if you like to swing hold on the alevin bite is just around the corner.Nymphs: princes, bwos, copper johns, alevins, wormsSwinging: alevins, hobo speys, olive streamers
