August fishing has actually been pretty good considering it’s usually the slowest month here. Given we are still experiencing the last of the snow melt and cooler water temps it has been a good time the last few weeks on both the McCloud, Upper Sac, Lower Sac and McCloud Reservoir for clients. It looks like a hot spell is upon us right now but by Labor Day weekend temps get back to 80’s. This will probably be the last of the hot, the nights will be cooling soon and the fishing will improve. Best bet right now is nymphing your bugs deep near the bottom, fishing the faster oxygenated water and pockets. We are finding small midges, soft hackles and rubber legs are getting some nice fish for us. Surprisingly too the McCloud Reservoir has been putting out unbelievable numbers, this is always a great alternative this time of year. Give us a shout if you want to join in on the fun.
