Frenchman’s Lake Fishing Report

Frenchman’s Lake – Much better weather in the last week with glassy conditions has allowed for some incredible sight fishing opportunities. There are much more fish in the northern part of the lake and it seems much of the population is ganged up there. Most of the trout are in the upper water column with many of them right on the...

North Fork Yuba, Lake Davis, and Truckee

I’ve been roaming back and forth from the Truckee area to the North Fork Yuba River for the past few months, and now it’s time to concentrate my guiding over to the Truckee River and Little Truckee River area for fall. I really can’t wait to be on the Northern Sierra stillwaters as well in a week or two when the water temperatures come down a little more. The...

North Fork Yuba River ~ Jamison Creek Fishing Report

Water levels are at an all-time low for the season resulting in even more fishable water. Fishing has been great using dry flies for small wild rainbows, and when using lighter rods you get to feel the tug, while seeing a bent rod. It’s been really fun! Water temps range from 56 in the morning to 64 in the...

The North Fork Yuba River is firing on all cylinders right now and conditions are perfect. I’ve been focusing my trips in the upper watershed where there are numerous cold subterranean springs entering the river pumping in 42 to 46 degree crystal clear water. Water temperatures in the main stem river are 56 in the morning rising to 63 in the afternoon, the water...

North Fork of The Yuba Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 7.27.17

The North Fork Yuba River has finally fallen into shape though some tight sections of the river seem a tad high. Water temps are 55 degrees in the morning rising to 62 in the afternoon. Fishing is great for those beautiful wild rainbows, and the dry fly fishing is awesome. Anytime you can find soft water you’ll get takes, and some of the smaller pockets have many...

Northern Sierra Fly Fishing Report

The surge of Africa hot weather a few weeks ago and continued warmer weather has water temps at both Lake Davis and Frenchman’s Lakeexcessively high with surface temps reaching 74 degrees. Its game over until fall, releasing trout when the water is that warm usually means it’s their last fight. One option at Lake Davis though is targeting bass for the next few...

Northern Sierra Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 6.25.2017

On Monday the 12th we had extremely cold weather and snow, in fact at Frenchman’s Lake there was 2 inches on the ground. A week later and it’s been Africa hot, thank goodness it cools down at night. I’m seeing the effects from a wet winter all around in the mountains. There are so many wildflowers blooming right now that are providing a beautiful color spot...

Lake Davis & North Fork Yuba River fishing report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 10.6.2016

The last few weeks at Lake Davis we saw above normal temperatures with some days of light wind. During this time there were fish in the shallows until about 1pm, then returning to the first ledge in deeper water from 8 to 15 feet. Water temperatures went from 60 to 64, then 58 to 62 degrees. Currently after this last storm rolled through, the water temps dropped...

Conditions remain the same on the North Fork Yuba River, great fishing, and exceptional views. Water temperatures are 57 in the morning rising to 63 degrees in the early afternoon for the upper watershed. The best times to ply the water are 8am to 1pm, then again in the evening chasing the last couple of hours of light. Fishing pressure has been light, but I’m...

I just completed a 5 day run up on the North Fork Yuba River and my guests and I had such an awesome time as the fishing has been great. Water temperatures are still cool ranging from 55 to 57 degrees in the morning, and topping out at 62 to 64 degrees in the late afternoon in the upper most part of the watershed. Location is everything, and locating where the deep...
