The Lower Sac has fished very well this past week with lots of big, well fed, wild trout coming to the net – along with reports of a few steelhead poking around down below Cottonwood.

The big river on many days has offered us plenty of solitude! Seems that a lot of folks have been saving their fishing equity for the October egg drop madness that hits town...

I spent the weekend striper fishing on the Lower Sacramento outside of Chico, CA this last weekend. Fishing was good very good. Fall fishing has started on the river and fish are strapping on the feed bag. I have never seen so much bait in the lower sacramento river sense I started fishing for stripers out there nearly 10 years ago. Up and down the river one...

The Lower Sacrament River remains a great trout fishing option this summer. Recently, we’ve been seeing both quality and quantity up and sown the river, from downtown Redding to Cottonwood. Despite the lack of hatches the fish have been eating well throughout the day. Fish don’t seem to be too keyed in on any specific bug, its just important that you put those...

Stripers - Water temps remain in the mid 60’s to Low 70’s on the Lower Sac outside of chico and while flows are low fishing has remained fair to good on any given day. Lots of small fish with some nice mid size fish mixed in. On most days we are getting a shot at a “big” fish in the 10+lb category with a few in the 20+lb range. There is a healthy population...

We had a good mount of rain Tuesday and fishing in the rain in August for stripers was a new experience but the fish didn’t seem to mind ounce we found the fly they wanted they seemed to eat pretty well. The last few days we have gotten shots...

The Lower Sac continues to be a good option for anglers travelling to or through the Redding area. Fishing has certainly not been lights out - 40 fish days - like we often see in the spring and fall seasons, but the river remains cold, clean, and the trout are fat healthy in this system. The L Sac remains a top choice for CA anglers looking to satiate their...

Anthony Carruesco of AC Fly Fishing Reports:

The Lower Sacramento River remains a great summer option. There were a few days earlier this week where we had to work a bit harder for ‘em than usual but overall the river has been kicking out slugson a daily basis. When you can take beginners out and have them each lose count of how many fish they land, you know you have a special river. Year...
