Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Hogan Brown reports on 12.30.2015

Lower Sacramento River - I have been on the upper stretches of the Lower Sac a few days this last week between Bonnie View and Anderson. Crowds are nonexistent as the few guides that are on the river are up from Possie to Bonnie. The River is really low around 3500cfs and releases will not come up I imagine as long as Shasta is so low. Trout fishing is fair to good depending on the day and conditions. Overall it is pretty typical winter trout fishing on the Sac with good fishing during the warmest part of the day and then mediocre fishing in the morning and late afternoon. Fish are eating a variety of bugs but the most consistent is smaller PT style flies imitating mayflies.

Butte Creek - I got out and did some exploring and flows have crashed down to about 130cfs and clarity is gin clear…not great conditions. Fished a few runs down lower in the canyon and didn’t find any fish. I think the fish that pushed up with the rain are up higher in the system and getting up in the canyon is key to find fish.
