Upper Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Brian “Bucko” Theriot Reports on 5.18.2016

The Upper Sac is almost in prime shape to make it wader friendly throughout the whole river. The flows have dropped down to 673 cfs but that could change with rain on the way.  I would focus on the The Upper Part of the River that is definitely more easier to wade than the lower part. We are seeing salmon flies, golden stones, caddis, and mayflies hatching throughout the river. We have had some success on dry droppers, but the best fishing has been under a “jaydacator” (an indicator made by Jason Cockrum–best indicator on the planet!). The fish seem to be keying on rubberlegs, various caddis patterns and mayflies. Don’t forget that wading staff when you come to this river!
Opening days: May 20, 22, 30, 31
