Putah Creek Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Richard Loft Reports on 9.29.2016

Hey Everyone , Putah is continuing to fish really well, however it is getting a lot of pressure so consider being a little extra quite and fish seams others don’t bother fishing due to heavy consintrations of boulders that make drifts difficult , You can always go to a hopper dropper and fish those runs being over looked my most. also consider bringing a second rod for nymphing I have been doing very well with a standard nymphing rig with a #16 or #18 top fly ( pheasant tail ) or ( caddis ) just any basic fly seems to be working , and your favorite midge below . Remember to mend often and set often I landed a nice 15 or 16in bow yesterday on just a twich of my indi .

Last week produced lot of fish in the 12 to 15 inch range so fish on and if you see me on the river and are having a hard time finding a decent section to fish just ask if you can jump in and fish I try to remember to share the river when I can as few people get to fish as much as me and I understand other peoples time on the river may be very limited so just ask if you see me fishing a slot I will do my best to share plus it forces me to fish runs I normally overlook. This time of year you never know what you will stumble across fishing obscure  runs seldom fished ? Just saying  

Thanks for reading and hope to meet some of you on the river
