North Fork Yuba Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi / Baiocchi’s Troutfitters Reports on 7.6.2016

North Fork Yuba River - Conditions are perfect right now for the most beautiful watershed in all of California. The North Fork screams fun fishing, boulder hopping, dry flies, and solitude. Water temps are ranging from 56 to 61 degrees. Dry / dropper rigs are best, or for the evening hatch just go with a single fly like Ralph’s E/C Caddis in olive, size 14. Effective dry flies include yellow and orange stimis size 10 to 14, purple haze #12-16, foam beetles #12, and hopper patterns. Yellow can be a key strike inducer for these small wild fish. Productive dropper flies have been Psycho prince nymphs, red Copper Johns, flashback Pheasant Tails, and the mighty ant. Fishing pressure has been light, and the inquiring angler should concentrate on areas between Downieville and Sierra City. The harder the access, the better the fishing. See you on the water…
