Putah Creek Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Rob Russell reports on 3.16.18

Putah Creek is fishing well.  Flows are good and some really great fish are being caught.  Small nymphs, dead drifted under an indicator, is standard fare at Putah, and will get you hooked up.  However, streamers are also effective with good choices being crayfish and sculpin patterns.  Damsels nymphs should be active soon, and are fun to fish around the edges on a floating or intermediate line.    For flies, zebra midges in 18-22 are a good pattern to have right now.  Black seems best.  Also wd40s in various colors.  A hot fly lately has been a size 22, beadhead, flashback wd40 in dark olive.  Trailing these smaller nymphs off of a larger, attractor nymph is a good idea.  Some of the larger fish of the year are caught in the Spring at Putah Creek.  Bring your best A-game, and you could be rewarded.  Good luck and see you out there!      Dates still available in March.  Rob Russell 707-888-2571      Instagram and Facebook @robrussellflyfishing
