The Upper Sac has seen some radical changes these last few weeks. From snow to rain, too hot days with snowmelt. We’ve seen this river fluctuate inflows and turbidity. However, I am pleased to say this blue water trout stream is now in fantastic spring shape and fishing well. We have seen some quality fish up and down this 40-mile system. Fish from 10” to 16’’ and bigger are being caught on the dry as well as the nymph.
It is certainly not a numbers game but a quality spring day can make any angler smile. If you like fishing the big bug, we have seen those prehistoric Salmonflies flying over the river. There are always a couple pig rainbows looking for that big bug, be the angler that shows em a sample.
Despite that big meal available, most of the fish are being caught on mayflies. A favorite technique is swinging soft-hackles through the tail-outs. You’ll see us doing plenty of walk n wade trips as well as floating the lower section is one of our rafts give us a wave or a call.
