Rick Cox of Ted Fays Fly Shop Reports :

Rain and snow on Mt. Shasta, what a great start to fall here so far and more forecast the next 7 days … we will take what what we can get. Unfortunately the McCloud has gone out again which I thought it would. The pictures tell the sad story, only time and mother nature have control on when we can get back on this river. The Upper Sac on the other hand is enjoying the rain. The fishing remains good and the fall colors are spectacular. The October Caddis are cruising throughout the day so if you are inclined put on a big stimulator (with dropper) and try and tickle a fish to come up. Nymphing though will produce more fish, they are chowing down now in preparation for winter. Hint … think caddis emergers right now.
