Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

It’s summertime, folks.. That means there are a lot of options to get out and get after trout with a fly rod. Our main squeeze: the Lower Sac is currently on the drop and is expected to stay steady at 10k cubes this summer. This is the PERFECT flow for the Lower Sac in the Summer. Summer is the most underrated time of year on this powerhouse tailwater. Yes, the days can be hot but this only means one thing: Big afternoon and evening Caddis hatches which equate to some very, very good trout fishing. This is a great time of year to step outside of the box and fish the river with a few different techniques and approaches. Dry fly fishing is a real possibility late in the day during strong Caddis hatches.. getting out of the boat and swinging emerges pre-hatch can be very fruitful. Shallow water dry-dropper and even “tight-line” nymphing can be very productive in the right spots.

In addition, we have good to great fishing happening on the Upper Sac, McCloud, Pit and Fall River. The Freestone streams are finally dropping into prime shape for the summer months. Bugs are hatching and fish are eating. Wet wading is a damn fine way to enjoy there rivers right now. Fall river is producing very good fishing for our guides out there recently and the Hex hatch is just starting roll. The coming weeks ought to be excellent out there.
