It’s A great time to be out on it while the temps are mild. A recent trip on it used a combo of running drifts from the boat and getting out to fish buckets and side channels …. very effective...

Upper Sac 

This week we have had some incredible weather and have taken full advantage of it—I even found myself wet wading. I did a couple days on the Upper Sac this week and the fishing was ok. The river is still big and currently flowing at 3390 cfs; two days ago it was at 2300 cfs, So it jumped up a thousand cfs since the 1st. 

You have to pick your spots wisely...

Lost Coast Outfitters reports on 3.2.17

Familiar refrain on the Upper Sac too, still a bit high to fish. We’d like to see about half the volume. 1400cfs is historical average right now, so we’re headed on the right path. If we get some dry and not too warm (read: snowmelt) we could see some good spring fishing out here. Think skwalas, BWO’s and maybe march browns.

As I am typing this right now, the Upper Sac is currently flowing at 26,700 cfs and is climbing at about 1000 cfs an hour. This river is huge right now and should definitely be avoided, but it is a spectacular site to see! Keep looking forward to spring-time fishing on The Upper Sac and keep dreaming about the big golden and salmon stoneflies in May and June!
