Upper Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

Arrow Thin Left Icon

Craig Nielsen Reports:

Flows on the Upper Sacramento River  have been at summertime norms for several weeks.  Springs on the upper river keep water temps low so the entire river remains very wadable and fishable all summer long.  Local guides Craig Nielsen, Rick Cox, Alan Blankenship, Wayne Eng and Fred Gordon have hosted several guests and found nymphing during the day continues to produce and the evening dry fly bite on Mayflies and lingering Stoneflies have been outstanding the last few weeks.  The fish are fat and happy as angling pressure has been noticeably light this season.  We have not yet seen the typical influx of Shasta Lake Rainbows moving into the lower river yet.  These feisty, hot fish average 14-18″ and provide great sport, much like half pounder steelhead and we expect them to be showing up in our nets in the coming weeks.
