Great
What a great day on the Yuba!  Spent the day with Jeff from Sacramento chucking fat grasshoppers all day.  We had a blast!  We had a number of smaller fish come up and crush our fly with mixed results on hooking up as they seemed more poised for a fight than a meal.  The real highlight, was the number of larger of fish that couldn't resist either.  Got a few to the net with a few more heartbreaks.  So fun to watch the grabs!!!! We picked up a few fish nymphing as well so it looks like a good time to get out on the Yuba even with the heat!

Okay
I guided Tom and his grandson Collin on the Yuba river. We stayed ahead of the bad weather all day, but the rain the day before had the river a little off color. The guys were new to fly fishing out of a drift boat but both hooked fish with 20 minutes, Collin getting his to the net. The grab was a little off but we had our chances all day. Collin finished the day with a nice one in the net! Saw a lot more salmon in the river today. With all this new water things could get really good soon.

What a great day on the Yuba with one of my favorite "clients!"  Lots of grabs today and some awesome fights with some very frisky fish!  Lots of air time!  Got a few to the net as well. Good to see the fishing improve on the Yuba. Saw a few salmon, so hopefully things get even better soon.

Very proud of the client.

I spent a great day putting on a clinic for a great bunch of anglers from Nevada on the Yuba RIver.  We spent the morning learning flies and rigging techniques before moving to the water to demonstrate the wide variety of techniques that can be utilized for catching fish on the river.  We then visited multiple access spots around the river discovering the various water that the Yuba presents.  The group was very willing to learn and anxious to give everything a try. We even spent some time throwing the spey rod around.  They did an amazing job all day.  Truly one of the best days I've had teaching on the river.

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.

Great
Spent a short but very productive day on the Yuba River with Dave from Sacramento.  We fished from 8am til around 2pm today and with only one rod in the water most of the day, we hooked into a bunch of nice fish.  We managed 6 to the net.  The weather was perfect and even though the water still had a brown tint to it, the fish didn't seem to mind.  Only saw three Skwala's all day and definitely nothing feeding on the top.  Great Day!

Okay
Spent the day with John and Doug on the Yuba today.  Fishing was a little on and off.  We had a good number of grabs in the morning and netted two really nice rainbows, but by 11 am, the fish took the rest of the day off.  Beautiful weather and great company more than made up for it.

I guided Cole on the Yuba river on Sunday.  There were no hatches all day on the river and fishing was definitely slow.  With the slow grab, Cole committed to  fishing nymphs without an indicator and was rewarded.  He worked really hard through a few of the best runs and pulled out 5 total fish with two of them being 16"+.  Way to go Cole.  Hopefully the weather will settle a little and we can get back to a few more consistent days on the Yuba!

I guided Lyman and Carl from Orange County on the Yuba River today.  It was cold and the clouds stuck around all day, but the guys were persistent with throwing dry flies.  Skwalas and BWOs were the ticket. Lots of good top water action.  The skwala hatch should be winding down soon, but March and April are a great time for PMDs, March Browns, BWOs, and caddis hatches.
