The past holiday weekend was quite busy in most local streams and rivers, but the fish were happy and ate quite willingly. Fall river fished well on a nymph, and also there were opportunity to catch wild rainbows on a dry fly. The evenings produced beautiful thunderheads, but we were spared rain. However, the clouds did make for some beautiful sunsets.
Mornings on Hat Creek produced a good number of fish slurping at a trico spinner fall. A downstream presentation works best for these fish, with the trusty “Hat Creek skate” to get the fly/flies into the proper lane where fish are consistently rising.
