Upper Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Upper Sacramento Fly Fishing Report
The Upper Sac is in perfect shape now. July is here but fortunately the days are very mild, we have experienced no serious heat waves yet and the water remains cold due to the continuing runoff. We are seeing the Golden Stones just about ready to leave the party but on the other hand some dynamite late evening dry fly fishing is still available. Although the word is out that the river is in excellent shape and you fly fishers are here in numbers the beauty of the river is that there is 30 miles of access. Most fish during the day are taking a variety of nymphs including soft hackles, Red Copper Johns, Dark Lords and my favorite the LBS (little black shit). Best luck has been getting the bugs down near the bottom, the fish are hugging it due to the very clear visibility.
Give us a shout if you want to experience some fun time on the Upper Sac this summer.
 
Cheers

The Upper Sacramento.
Flows are still very high but are dropping rapidly into shape. Its time to plan that trip and get on this amazing freestone river for its famed golden stonefly hatch. We will be wading and rafting this river in the next couple of weeks and can’t wait to share the results. Stay Tuned…

The Upper Sacramento River

The river has been bouncing around but has just dropped below 3000cfs. She’s a beast but its all about the edges and soft spots. Best to fish areas where it spreads out rather than the tight narrow ones you normally would fish. Be prepared too to see a completely different landscape in the lower river from the Delta Fire cleanup, fortunately, though the river itself survived. Again here expect a big turn around next week here, June should be dynamite!

McCloud River Fishing Report

The McCloud River is still experiencing high flows (532 CFS at Ah Di Na), but the fishing is quite good. The higher flows may limit some access and adjust the way you approach your favorite spot but it is likely that you’ll thoroughly enjoy your day. Last week our guides caught fish in a variety of ways. We were thrilled to throw the dry...

Upper Sac

The Upper Sacramento River is fishing great right now. With the diminished snowpack and lack of high water, May fishing will be some of the best we have seen in years. Most fish are being caught under an indicator but late afternoon and evening are showing signs of top action. We are starting to see the beginnings of Mayfly and Caddis hatches which will only get...

The theme the last couple of weeks around here has been excellent fishing for Wild Waters Fly Fishing. We have been finding steelhead at the coast, the Upper Rogue, Upper Klamath and even trout in our own backyard here on the Upper Sac. Last night the skies opened up with pounding rain and lightning, it has let up but more is forecast including snow through...

The Upper Sacramento River

I have had the opportunity to winter fish the Upper Sacramento River since it opened to year round fishing a few years ago. She can be a tempermental thing with a lot of pulse flows but when we have these drier years such as now the fishing on it can be extremely good, particularly for those elusive big fish that you always hear...

Ted Fay Fly Shop Reports on 10.26.2017

October has been spectacular in many ways here in Dogpatch. Unlike the pain in the ass conditions of last year with the record setting rains early on this year has been very kind weather and fishing wise. The beautiful Fall colors seem to be matching what you would see in New England, the temps have been very comfortable and the fishing has produced some of...

Brian “Bucko” Theriot Reports on 10.10.17

We are finally transitioning into cooler weather after a blazing hot summer. We have had 80 degree weather the past couple days, but that is soon to change to high 60s and low 70s starting Friday; we will even see mid 30s as the low for night time temps! I will finally have to start wearing my waders consistently now with the cooler temps. As the fishing...
