Lower Yuba River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Dave Barbieri Yuba Reports  8/11/15

After an incredible spring trout season, and an awesome shad run, trout fishing on the Yuba River has reverted to typical Yuba. Experienced anglers can get good numbers of fish. Beginners have more difficulty because the fish have become selective, and spooky. Perfect drifts, quick hooksets, and effective line management, all make a huge difference.

There isn’t really any one prolific bug hatch. We are getting most fish nymphing with stoneflies, PMDs, and caddisflies. Don’t forget attractor patterns like the Red Copper John, or Red Headed Stepchild. Some fish are coming to the surface for hoppers, and we are also getting some caddis dry-fly action in the evening.  We are also getting a few stripers down below Daguerre Dam.
