Northern California Fly Fishing Report
Chuck Volckhausen Reports on 10.15.2020
Fish are spread throughout the river. Salmon are moving through and a few of them have started dropping some eggs. We could use a little more rain. The rain we did get soaked into the ground and even the creeks that drain the fire burned forests, didn’t color up.
Half pounders could be found anywhere but they are not everywhere. Some Klamath river sized adults are also being caught. It’s the time of year when we get to swing flies with dry lines and skaters.
I have been seeing some algae bloom. Both near the bottom of the river and recently up top. Look out for this. It can ruin your day and make you sick. Best to avoid the places where the water is very green. It’s late in the year for this to be happening.🤷♂️
We are excited for some colder temps to come through. The fishing is improving on the McCloud and bugs are moving around a bit. Back to being able to catch some fish on dry flies.
We all love the fall here. Just one month left on the magical McCloud.
