The Lower Sac has been a little fickle recently. With that being said we’ve had two consecutive days of “lights out good” fishin’ in the dark, wet weather. Don’t get your feelings hurt if you don’t have a bunch of fish to the net before lunch right now. Be patient for a little later bite. Fish have gotten very quick to grab and drop the fly over the past week or so - especially on the sunny/clear days. This means you have to have an ultra quick hammer to get em to stick.
Not ideal for beginners when the fish get this quick.. they get a lot more picky about the perfect drift, fly placement, and ninja-quick grabs. There is always some very good fishing to be had if you bring your “A game.” Wet weather ahead for the week. This should add a little color to the water and make the fish a lot more comfortable to hang on to the fly. Caddis and Peemers remain on the menu. March Browns have been flying around on some days too. Dry fly fishing has been a thing each day out too… The hatches will only thicken as we get moving further into Spring.
