The Sac is continuing to fish very consistent.  PMD nymphs and rubberlegs are still the go-to flies.  The weather is perfect, albeit a little breezy - but that's spring on the Sac.

We have experienced some crazy weather the past few days.  Fishing has remained pretty good, but they were not as grabby as they have been the past few weeks.  They are keying on rubberlegs and PMD nymphs right now.  I have guidied Pat many times on the Sac and Trinity, and she has had so many amazing days and hooked so many big fish we can't even remember.  But today, the something special happened and she landed this 25" horse today.  Sometimes good things happen to good (great) people!

I spent a beautiful day guiding the lower Feather River today with fellow guide Mike Folden.  We had a very special guest on board - my dad John!  Mike spent the day coaching my dad and hooked him up with several nice trout.  The trout/steelhead action was pretty tough today, but everyone in the group hooked trout and we put a few in the net.  We also landed a handful of suckers and pikeminnows.  We had the whole river to ourselves and covered a lot of water.  The spring steelhead run on the Lower Feather can be good any time between March and June.  It didn't seem like there were a ton of fish in the river, but that can change as the season progresses.

The Lower Sac is fishing red-hot right now.  We had a wide-open nymph grab all day long.  We fished up in Redding today.  My clients Rich and Kathleen caught tons of 14-17" rainbows and landed a couple up to 19".  There were lots of boats around, but the fish didn't seem to mind.  Yesterday we fished closer to Red Bluff and didn't see another boat all day.  Fishing was slower and the fish were smaller down there, but the solitude was really nice, too.

We could not have asked for better weather and more cooperative fish today.  I love it when fishing is this easy!  We hooked into lots of really nice fish that were chowing on rubberlegs and PMD nymphs.  This is such a fun time to be on the Sac!

I guided Greg and Brad from southern California the last two days.  They were new to the Lower Sac and to heavy-duty indicator fishing, but they figured it out pretty quickly.  Fishing was excellent on Wednesday with tons of hookups and fish up to 20" in the net.  We fought high winds in the afternoon both days, but the fish were still grabby.  Today was still quite good, but the action came in fits and starts.  There was a really good PMD hatch today and there were quite a few giant stonefly shucks on the water.  The fish ate a hodge-podge of egg patterns, PMD nymphs and stonefly nymphs.

I spent the last couple of days fishing with good clients John and Francis on the Lower Sac, the Lower Sac has been fishing Good to Great ! The quality of the Trout on the Lower Sac always amazes me, there aren't that many places in the world within a relatively short drive of a couple million people, where one is able to catch beautiful wild rainbows on a regular basis. Conditions should remain stable for the next week or two, then the flows will raise to there Summer time levels, once the flows stabilize the fishing should be good through the Summer. Get out there and get you some !

As we approach our last week of Eagle Canyon, we're getting some good BWO hatches. Bring BWO nymphs and dries!  
We've had 10-15 lb fish netted this week- the big boys don't get pinned very often! 
Floating lines continues to be the tool of choice, with 9 foot leaders, sized down to 3-5X. Damsel & mayfly nymphs with a midge trailer will a surefire setup-- if using an indicator, balanced leaches and olive micro mays(size 16-18s) have been working best.

Wow!  The past three days has been very productive.  Friday was with the Santa Lucia Fly Fishers and Larry and Jim both hooked into a lot of really nice fish and eggs and PMD nymphs.  Saturday and Sunday was family outing and Eric's first time fly fishing.  The fish were super grabby and Eric hooked over 25 fish his first day!  The flows are still at 5,000 cfs and the weather is perfect.  No need to wait any longer - now is the time to book your spring fishing trip!

Drifted the lower Sac with Don & Ray with the Santa Lucia Fly Fishers from San Luis Obispo. With countless hookups, we landed some hard fighting rainbows. Don tied into this buck (photo attached) that had his reel screaming! Fighting the fish on a 5X dropper, he did a great job bringing this hog to the net. 

This is a great time of year to float this river. The flows have been around 5,000 CFS, and the fish are hungry! Go book a Confluence guide and catch some fish;)

Nice fish Don!

 We hosted the Santa Lucia Fly Fishers club from San Luis Obispo today.  They did a 4-boat trip with us on the Sac as part of our Eagle Canyon/Lower Sac combo special.  Tomorrow they will fish Eagle Canyon.

Fishing was really good for us today.  Art and Lew were quite adept at the indicator fishing techniques we use on the Lower Sac and did very well.  We hooked fish up to 20" and landed tons of 15-17" rainbows today.  PMD nymphs were the best bet.

Thanks to the Santa Lucia Fly Fishers and good luck at Eagle Canyon tomorrow!

Spent the day scouting and speed boating down the Yuba yesterday. This was my first trip down the Yuba since the big water push in March. The river is still racing. There was very little water to fish with a lot of confidence. To fish the good spots the boat had to be in really fast water.  Managed to hook and land one on the day. More interesting was the changes in the river. There were plenty of spots on the river that have completely changed and the river created an entirely new channel just below Sycamore. Crazy. Good news was the March Browns were out and when the flows come down a little, I think the Yuba will be a great place to fish. Can't wait to learn the new river.

We had a "wind advisory" day on the Lower Sac today.  Persistent 15-20mph winds made fishing challenging in many areas.  The river still fished pretty good, though.  Usually when it's that windy the fish seem to be off the bite.  Today we landed a few nice 16-18" rainbows, hooked plenty of medium-sized fish, and lost a huge one that looked to be about 22".  PMD nymphs were the best fly for us today - the PMD hatch lasted from 10am to 4pm.

The past two days were full of a lot of action.  My clients hooked fish all day long - both days!  The river is in great shape and the fish are chowing on eggs and PMD nymphs.  The weather has been beautiful and the river is fishing as good as it gets.

We hosted the Diablo Valley Fly Fishers from the Walnut Creek area today at Eagle Canyon.  They had excellent weather and the fish were on the grab.  I helped out for about an hour and almost everyone had landed a fish by the time I left.  There were a couple 10lb+ fish in the mix, too.  I saw fish hooked on wiggle nymphs, tailwater tinys, pheasant tails, and various zebra-midge style patterns.

Wow!  The Lower Sac is in great shape and the fish are definately eating flies.  Joel and his son Will had an amazing day with most all fish over 17".  Hungry trout and perfect weather makes spring a great time to fish the Sac!

Finally a break from the endless rain this past week which led to some amazing conditions on the Olympic Peninsula.  Next season is already booking up, so contact me early if you want a spot for 2017.
