Upper & Lower Sac
The hatches are firing up on both rivers offering a wide variety of insects. You can expect to see Caddis, a variety of Mayflies, Stones and my favorite the good ole Salmonfly (USac) showing themselves. This is the time of year that the switch goes off and the fish come out to play. The perfect recipe for rising water temps, bugs popping and warming days makes these two rivers a must for your early season experience. The LSac is enjoying some of its best early spring fishing this year and from all appearances, this theme will continue. The Upper Sacramento is in its runoff mode right now showing higher water than normal but certainly not for this time of year. Just be more cautious wading, it is a surprisingly powerful river that can fool you.
