Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Bucko Theriot reports on 9.17.2015

It’s Beginning to feel a bit like fall around here. Cooler days and nights have the fish on the move. Last week we found good numbers of fish scattered throughout the drift from Posse grounds down to Bonnie holding in all the usual spots. Yesterday, there seemed to be a big shift with the biggest concentration of hungry bows found from the boards to just below the Sundial Bridge. Small dark caddis pupa patterns were the hot ticket (#16 Birds nest, #16 Silveys in tan and brown) always a good idea to run a micro may in olive or black as your dropper and we found adjusting the drop from the indicator kept us in the fish, running as deep as 9’ to 6’. Change it up if things slow down. Remember, even though the crowds are down and the bite is turning on, these are “educated fish” they have seen it all so presentation is KEY. Don’t get lazy on your drifts, drag free = grabs. Be ready, takes are subtle and lightning quick, lots of swings and misses even among the hot sticks. Look for conditions to just keep getting better. Epic days ahead

My open days: the 21-23rd and 28-30th
