This morning the Lower Yuba is flowing at just over 2,300cfs but it was double this over this past weekend. Our hope is that the rain will push some more healthy fish up the system to join what has been some of the nicer pods of fish we’ve seen over the past few years.
Before this past weekend we’ve had some phenomenal dry fly fishing. Small EC caddies or elk hair caddie in tan sure got em good as well as pinkies.
Starting to see signs of sqwallas as well so hopefully we have a great season of fishable flows. If we weren’t seeing many heads or weren’t blind casting dry fly patterns, deep nymph rigs produce. Fish are still on the eggs but found plenty willing to eat a coffee jimmy legs, copper j’s, s&m’s, pmds or a good ol dirt worm. For those who wish to swing em up, it’s a great time to do it. My fly of choice is a #4 or #6 olive Bellyache Minnow. This week will be beautiful out there. Come on up the hill and enjoy it. Hope to see you on the water!
