McCloud Upper Sac Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Brian “Bucko” Theriot Reports on 10.10.17

We are finally transitioning  into cooler weather after a blazing hot summer. We have had 80 degree weather the past couple days, but that is soon to change to high 60s and low 70s starting Friday; we will even see mid 30s as the low for night time temps! I will finally have to start wearing my waders consistently now with the cooler temps. As the fishing goes, Fall is my favorite time of the year to be on these two magnificent rivers. We have the big October caddis hatch coming up and I have never seen so many October caddis cases on the river bottom as I did this summer when I was guiding. Get ready for a big hatch! On the McCloud, you have a chance to hook into big browns as they are migrating up river form the lake. But if you don’t get a big brown, the rainbows are there to fill in and give you a good fight. The Upper Sac is fishing fair to good throughout the whole river. Try dry droppers rigs, tight line high stick nymphing and indicator nymphing on both rivers to have the most success.
