Rob Russell reports on 4.12.18
Flows have been mostly stable over the last week and fishing has been good! 200 cfs is a great flow for fishing and wading the many runs and pockets of Putah Creek. Fishing has been best on the warmer days, directly corresponding to a strong midge hatch in the morning. Smaller streamers have been producing as well.
Buggers and leeches in black or olive are good choices. Vary your retrieve and swing-strip your flies. A slower retrieve is better on colder days.
Weather is expected to remain variable. This should keep the flows somewhat stable, however, expect flow increases with any warm periods over the next couple of weeks.
The higher flows of Summer are just around the corner. Fun Spring fishing is still happening at Putah Creek. Dates available in April. Give me a call with any questions! - Rob Russell 707-888-2571#robrussellflyfishing
