Garrett Smith Reports on 7.10.2020
Striped bass have made their way up the American River and fishing is getting better each week. We are starting to see good numbers on both half day and full day floats, and it will only get better from here!
We are in the beginning of the best fishing of the summer. There are lots of schools of stripers up and and down the river at the moment, and they have shifted in to their summer holding and feeding patterns, mostly hunting down squawfish, crayfish and bluegill. We cover a lot of water on these floats and you can expect to see very consistent action throughout the day.
The American is only an hour and a half from the Bay Area, making it a great option for a single day trip from the bay.
Flows are up to 4,000 cfs on the American which is a prime summer level. I expect fishing to stay solid until Mid September this season with these flows.
Trout rivers in the north state are looking pretty solid for this time of year. Posted above are the updated flows from 1.16.2020. Updated flows can always be found on DreamFlows website.Continue reading

Shad are in! We have reports for the following rivers:
Just came into shape, but then the recent rains and upcoming rains will likely affect the clarity.
A good number of shad and stripers being reported on the American River. She is flowing at 9k fishing from the bank though.
High and Flowing steady at 6660 CFS. They plan to drop the river to 5k next week if you believe the river forecast. Yuba River Dam Release Schedule 5/14:
Englebright Reservoir is expected to continue spilling until June. It is anticipated that total releases from Englebright Reservoir will range between 7,000 cfs, and 5,000 cfs for the next week. Flows in the lower Yuba River are managed to comply with license and flow requirements. Flows can change swiftly and suddenly, so be prepared when recreating on the lower Yuba River or avoid the river for your safety.

Striper fishing on the Lower Sac and Valley rivers continues to pick up and the heat wave coming this weekend should really get the fish feeding.
