Lower Yuba Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 12.6.18

Northern Sierra

11/29/2018 - Conditions remain good on the Lower Yuba River and this past week gave us some wild weather from heavy rain, to extreme wind, and a few breaks in the action. Lots of anglers out on the river yesterday, you’ll get that after a series of storms keep you inside and getting the shack nasties. The much-needed rainfall raised the river up a tad...

Lower Yuba River – 

Got a few days on the Lower Yuba River over thanksgiving week and had a great time. Just plain good trout fishing. Most fish are a fat 12-14” with a few bigger fish in the mix. Flows have been pretty stable around 1000cfs which is a great flow for floating or wading OR floating and getting out of the boat to fish. There are still salmon on...

Yuba River Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 11.16.18

Poor air quality conditions exist on the Lower Yuba River but fishing still remains decent for those that put in the work. Flows are stable at 993 cubes, just a tad up from my last report. Water is clear but not for long. 

Finally, a storm system will impact the area beginning on Wednesday, it’s been 6 months since we’ve seen the skies open up. The foothills are...

Capt. Hogan Brown reports on 11.26.18

Lower Yuba River - Spent a few days guiding the Yuba the last week in the rain and fishing was good. Most of the fish are a healthy 12-14" with a few bigger fish in 17-18" bracket. I am sure there are bigger and smaller fish around, but that is what I have been finding. Flows with the rain have been hovering aroud 900-1000cfs and clarity is a dirty...

Jon Baiocchi reports on 11.1.18

Warm days and mild nights have been the norm, and the fishing has been pretty good on the Lower Yuba, especially the dry fly fishing. The flows were bumped up to 1,470 cubes last week to attract more salmon to migrate upstream, and with the full moon pase it has had a dramatic impact. 

Currently, the Yuba is flowing at 1,127 cfs. This year’s salmon returns have been...

Yuba Fall Expectations

There has not been much buzz running around about the Yuba this past summer. I’ve been out there a handful of times lately with very positive results. The hopper fishing was lights out at the beginning of the month. I had a guest raise over 20 fish on the Fat Albert and he landed about half of them. The
health of the fish is impressive. They...

Lower Yuba River

Trout Fishing flows are stable around 2700. This is a GREAT flow to float the river but can be a tough flow to wade fish the river. I have heard from a few of my friends that have been guiding it that fishing for trout has been OK to good depending on the weather. The hatches this time of year are very weather dependent so the up and down spring...

Lower Yuba

Chuck Ragan here. Spring fishing is in full swing and if you’re having a hard time figuring out which fishery to hit, it’s for good reason.  The river are full of Striper and Shad have shown up.  The foothill, as well as valley lakes, have been churning out some excellent bass and even the Yuba River is offering some great opportunities.  

PLEASE BEWARE of...

Lower Yuba

The Lower Yuba River was fishing really well with the continued success that I have been getting my guests into for the last few months, then heavy rain slammed the northern California region and the river blew out big time. On the 14th the Yuba got up to 7,627 cubes, while Deer creek reached 2,859 CFS adding a whole bunch of muddy water. Typical of this...

Lower Yuba

Drifted the Lower Yuba River a few times the last week and flows were down around 850cfs. With the recent rains the river has come WAY up to about 6-7k cfs…Last storm it did this it dropped pretty quick so if you are looking to fish the Yuba I would say a few days without rain and it should drop back down if the last storm is any of a predictor. That said...
