Lower Sac is on!

The lower Sacramento has been fishing really well lately! It doesn’t hurt that there have been lots of Caddis, Blue Wing Olives and PMDs hatching.

John Dietz at The Fly Shop in Redding encouraged us to pick up a few dries when we were in the shop this week! And right he was! Small dark winter Caddis were hatching in the morning along with some PMDs followed by Mothers day Caddis with the green egg clusters came off starting around 2:00 p.m.

Yuba River pre-Thanksgiving dry fly action.

I had the pleasure of taking Nancy S and her husband fly fishing on the Yuba River just before Thanksgiving. Most anglers have moved on to fishing the Lower Sac or fishing for Steelhead, but I was still glad we were fishing via our private access. The weather was mild and partly cloudy with temps hovering around 60 degrees. There was sporadic insect activity, but this didn't deter us from targeting fish on dries. Overall we had a good day. We hooked and positively identified 15 fish. Not only does fishing dries remove the guess work of indicator nymphing, it also is darn fun!
