Northern California Fly Fishing Report - May 13, 2018

Things are really jumping off right now throughout the Golden State for those of us who love to pursue fish with a fly. A myriad of exciting species are coming into range. Options include shad and striper which are entering the rivers to spawn, trout fishing opening up at the higher elevations and continued success on many central valley rivers. Largemouth and smallmouth fishing is taking off in our beloved Delta and Sierra Foothill Lakes and there are a few more days of swinging for Spring run steelhead to be had. There is something out there for everyone right now. From dries, nymphs and streamers to poppers and swung flies what ever your pleasure it's go time! Don't forget to like and share and email us with your fishing reports and photos for inclusion in the next report.
