Yosemite Area Fly Fishing Report

Rick Mazaira reports on 4.27.17

Yosemite Report

Fish-mas is coming! With all the high water the tributaries are going to be high but at least fish-able. I would be ready to cover some distance and get to pool and runs that are a little slower. Ready for nymphs and streamers as well.

Mokelumne-  3,048 CFS- Too big to fish, best to stay away.

Stanislaus- 3,048 CFS - Too high to float.

Tuolumne-10,000...

Yosemite Report

Storm this weekend with 4″ of rain expected, narrow windows of  opportunity so get out and enjoy when you can. As always check before you go, fish the edges with caution. Here are some shots of the Kings River above Pine Flat ushering in a great bloom and time to fish. Pinecrest Lake is a great still water opportunity with some hungry brood stock!

This week I had the opportunity to speak the the State Water Resources Control Board along with Tim Hutchins, Sam Davidson, Cindy Charles, Kelsey Linnett and Sean O'Rourke . The good was to be able to share the negative impact low water flows have had on the fly fishing community and the fly fishing industry and get to advocate for higher flows. The bitter side was...

October Caddis are on!!! The Stanislaus & Merced. Size 10 nymph or 10 dry.

Mokelumne- The Moke pulses for the Salmon are on.

Upper Moke- It’s all fishing well, dries & dry droppers. Stimulators & Caddis are best. Cooler in the morning so nymphing will be your best bet early.

Stanislaus- South Fork is doing well. Yellow Sallies, and Hare’s ears dries are picking up...

Stanislaus and Tuolumne Fishing Report.

Rick Mazaira Reports on 2.4.2016

Nothing like a day drifting, and the Stanislaus, it’s a special river. Great scenery, and a healthy diversity of fish from rainbows to stripers; and whether you like to nymph, or swing it is a fun time. Be mindful of time, the put ins and take outs close at sunset.

We are also joining with Doug Oulette to host a clinic at Pyramid Lake March 12th, it’s $150.00 full...
