The Lower Sac is fishing well right now. We are seeing solid pmd hatches late morning through the afternoon along with midges and spring caddis active as well.
The Lower Sac is known as a deep nymphing, side-drifting game… long leaders with 3 nymphs held down with a lot of weight is a consistent strategy for success here. However, don’t overlook the dry fly opportunities right now! The dry fly fishing is often serendipitous and elusive, but the last few weeks it has been pretty consistent. It’s fun to mix it up and hunt some surface feeders on this river.
Certain runs and flats will have more fish looking up than others but if you seek them out… you will find them. Try wading 2-3 foot deep slower water sections immediately below riffles on the cloudy days and in the shallow riffles on the bright, sunny days. The fish seem to key in on the emergers just below the surface and the rise form will tell you that.
I have eight possible dates still available this month: March 12, 13, 14 and 19, 20, 21, 27, 28 March is one of my favorite times on this river.
