We’re in the midst of a very memorable Fall fishing season on the Lower Sacramento River. As the flows continue to drop, the fish are transitioning from their egg eating haunts to more traditional bug water.
The previous 5 weeks provided an extremely fun and fast paced “egg drop” that the big fish were keyed in on. As the Fall run salmon start to thin out, it has become more of a bug game and has allowed the fish to spread out quite q bit. The Caddis, Baetis and small PMD hatches have been richter most days and have had the trout ultra grabby.
The extended forecast shows the mild weather to continue and 65-70 degree days are what to expect. As much as we’d like to start seeing some rain, we will be enjoying this insanely nice Fall weather on the water.
The game changes with the seasons on the Sac but don’t expect the party to slow down. Exceptionally good fishing still exists and the thick crowds of October are dwindling. November and December are two of the most underrated months on the Lower Sac.
