Lower Yuba Fly Fishing Report

Capt. Hogan Brown reports on 5.24.18

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...

Hogan Brown Reports on 3.9.2018

Been guiding the Lower Yuba River lately…river came up from 850cfs to 2500ish cfs this last weekend but has sense dropped down to 850cfs again. Fishing was fair at the high flows as there was some color and fishing off color water rigs and such was catching some fish higher in the float but about middway down fishing more of what the fish were eating was necessary as...

Jon Baiocchi Reports on 3.7.2018

In the last week the flows came up dramatically on the Lower Yuba River during and after our biggest storm of the winter season. The river topped out at 3,188 cubes which is a perfect flushing flow with no harm done. Deer creek ran as high as 1,870 cfs and as always pumped in a lot of dirty water. Currently the Yuba River is at 959 cubes and there is just a tinge of...

Jordan Romney Reports on 2.28.2017

The dry fly fishing on the Yuba in 2018 has been the best i’ve ever seen.  Sure the fish are smaller than normal but the action is incredible.  The average size fish has increased lately to about 12-13 inches.  We’ve hooked, landed, and lost a few better ones too.  

I haven’t been seeing a ton of skwalas but my view is skewed. I see the river from a boat and do not...

Jon Baiocchi Reports on 2.8.2018

Winter is the new summer lately. Hard to believe it’s the first week of February, above normal temperatures with bright sunny skies. I really like it, but fear the next to nothing snowpack in the Sierra. We need more snow, with high water content, or things will be bleak this coming summer and fall. Pray for a March miracle. The Lower Yuba River still amazes me with...

Jon Baiocchi Reports on 1.25.2018

The Yuba River has been insane during the last week, big hatches, dry flies, and rising trout. It’s why I moved from Graeagle down to the foothills. The perfect winter arena. Small weather systems have the flows bouncing up and down. Not enough to blow the river out, and even though the water clarity is stained, the Yuba River is fishing well. Currently the flows...

Yuba River Fly Fishing Report

Jon Baiocchi reports on 1.17.2018

Current conditions on the Lower Yuba River have the flows back down to 1,070 cubes, and the water has some color to it with about 3 feet of visibility to it. Deer and Squirrel creeks are running fairly clear for the most part so the source of stained water derives from the upper forks of the Yuba River entering Englebright reservoir. 3 feet of visibility is all...
