Pit River Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Lost Coast Outfitters reports on 4.27.17

The Pit is ripping along at 3840cfs. Unfortunately that’s too high to wade safely of angle properly. Hard to say what the future looks like, though I would guess it’s going to stay high in the near term. As always though, keep your eyes on the graphs, “the man” can drop or raise flows anytime. For example, the Lower Sac is scheduled to drop below 10K cfs first week of May. 

When the Pit does come into shape, be it next week or August, the fish are going to be fat and dumb from a smorgasbord of bugs and lack of angling pressure. Dig out your 3/0 and SSG splitshot and go to town. This is one of the best places in the West for high stick nymphing. Sounds like you need a new 10′ 4-weight…
