North Fork Yuba – I have not been back to the NFYR in about 2 weeks, and the gauges still show the river higher than I’d like it to be. A few friends of mine have been doing pretty well when they can find the right water conditions (walking speed flows with some depth), or mellower pocket water. The trout are starting to look up, and with good hatches of Golden Stones, caddis, Yellow Sallies, and the tail end of the Green Drakes (think spent spinners on top) the game will only get better as summer marches on. Fishing pressure is light in the more remote areas, but the campers are out in full force at the more easily accessible areas. There will be no “Dog Days” this year on the NFYR, but when it gets Africa hot, mornings and evenings will produce the best and find those springs that enter the river. With over 30 miles of river bordering Hwy 49, you can always find your own spot on one of the most amazing watersheds in Northern California.
