Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Lower Sacramento Trout

We have begun to fish the Lower Sac a bit recently and as we move further
into February I get more excited about the Sac. A lot of my clients have

steelhead on the brain (still) but the Sac offers a fantastic Plan B option
right now.
Before this latest cold weather snap, we experienced fantastic caddis action
during midday last week. Once the weather turns warm again and we have
those sunny afternoons - I’d expect to see the caddis migrations return,
along with bwo and other mayflies.

I’m getting excited about spring season and I look forward to some of the
best fishing of the year on the Lower Sac beginning in late February and
continuing through March, April and May. We see some of the most diverse
and intense insect hatches of the year during spring and early summer on
this river… BWO, PMD, drakes, Yellow Sally stones, Giant Salmonfly,
goldens, as well as spring caddis and plenty of midges, etc.
If you have never experienced this river or it’s been a few years, consider
booking a trip this spring and see what the fuss is all about. Some of the
biggest and baddest wild rainbows in the CA are found swimming in this
amazing river system.

*Dates available in February…11, 14, 19-21, 27, 28
March… 7-16, 18-22, 25, 26, 28, 29
