Putah Becoming Prime

The time is getting close when the water levels drop to perfect on Putah Creek. We all know how tough things can be in the Summer with the 600+ cfs water levels. The summer levels only leave a few spots on the creek open to finding fish. Plus the fish are really spread out, once the water drops they tend to start to stack up in the holes and runs. The levels are dropping making all those areas that are not accessible easier to get into and get some fish. These spots are my personal favorite to fish. One of the many secrets of the creek are the overgrown trail systems that take you to the holes that you cannot see from the road. Sometimes it feels like you are in a jungle when hiking these trails early in the fall.

The weather is starting to cool off turning the "good" fishing to the entire day rather then the mornings and afternoons. I have had a lot of trips recently and everyone seems to be hooking up with fish with a lot of long line releases. Putah is one of those places where you have to make every fish count. You do not get a lot of second chances here. The creek will fish well from now until the end of November. Spots are booking up fast so give us a call to get in on the creek.
