I hosted a group from Sacramento on a great trip to the Burney/Fall River area.  The guys had a great time fishing the various waters that the area provides. We fished Burney Crrek, Hat Creek and the McCloud RIver. The only disappointment of the weekend was that the McCloud River was full of silt and off color enough to put the fish down.  Amazing Salmonfly hatch though.  Fishing was slow, but as always, the scenery was magnificent.  Every where else we went, the fishing was very good.

I spent a beautiful day on the Lower Sac with clients Claude and Steve.  Flows dropped about 300cfs overnight and that seemed to put the fish off the grab a little this morning, but fishing picked up mid-day.  We didn't land a ton of fish today but most of them were nice 18-20" fish.  A few more salmon on redds today it seemed.

Had a great time with Jadon on the LS last Friday. Rolled the dice with the storm and had an outstanding day out on the water. Most our fish were caught on egg imitations and nymphs including this 10+ pounder that gave Jadon a work out for what seemed like an eternity!

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.

I spent three days guiding the Lower Klamath earlier this week, we got into 1/2 pounders each day but failed to connect with any adult steelhead. It rained hard here in Douglas City over night, the rivers are slowly rising with most of the rain soaking in, we might get more run off from the next wave. The Trinity is currently fishable above the North Fork, the Lower Klamath will need a little time to settle back down.

The river fished almost as well today as it did yesterday.  I saw a few more salmon on redds today also.  Rick and Steve had several double hook-ups and Steve topped his big fish from yesterday with an even bigger one.  We got off the river as the wind began to pick up.  A significant storm is moving in and we're expecting a lot of rain and high winds over the next two days.  That could mean good things for the steelhead fishing on the Trinity - stay tuned.

Today I had my best day on the Lower Sac since the August 1st "re-opener".  Clients Steve and Rick caught dozens of fish and half of them were in the 18"+ range.  We have salmon trickling into the upper river and there are just enough spawning to trigger a solid egg grab.  Our best fish today was a rainbow between 3 and 4 pounds.  The day was perfect, except for when Rick's squawfish barfed all over my pants!  Gross.

Had a good time guiding Sharon & Eddie on the LS yesterday. We mostly fished from the boat but did a little wading as well. Being a holiday it was fairly crowded but that didn't stop us from catching some fish! After several hookups, Eddie landed a nice rainbow off on a nymph. Not much on the egg patterns for us yesterday, as most the fish were hitting flies.

Had a fun time guiding Steve on Burney Creek & Pit River. BC fished a little slow in the morning but picked up when the sun started to warm things up. Steve landed a beautiful brown and rainbow when the bugs started hatching! 

In the afternoon we hit up the Pit River and with the water slightly off colored we threw on a big stonefly and instantly hooked up w/ a hard fighting 'bow that Steve had to tease around some boulders before landing. If you don't mind getting wet the Pit can offer productive fishing all day long!

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.

Had a great day with Paul and Lee from San Diego on the Lower Sac.  Weather was warm and beautiful and the fishing was pretty good.  We hooked and landed a numer of fish with a few in the 18 inch range.  Caught a few on egg patterns even with a troubling lack of salmon in the river.  Great day with great guys.  Let's hope the salmon begin to show in better numbers soon.

I just finished up a trip with Jack, John, Paul and Lee from San Diego.  We met when I presented to their club a couple years ago and decided to give the Redding area a shot this year for their annual fall fishing trip.  We fished them on the Lower Sac a couple days, and they also fished the Upper Sac, McCloud, Hat Creek, and Fall River.  Our days on the Lower Sac were pretty good.  There are very few salmon spawning just yet, so there is a kind of half-hearted egg grab going on right now.  Over the next few weeks we will hopefully see more salmon coming in.  Fishing was still productive, and at times it was very good.  We hooked fish up to 20 inches both days and landed a lot of nice fish over 16".

I guided the Trinity the past two days and only saw a few fish both days.  Thursday we fished indicators and hooked a few small fish and couldn't keep the smolts off our flies.  I only saw a few boats and they struggled too.  Friday we swung flies with two-handed rods all day.  Both guys got a few good bumps each, but no hook-ups.  We saw a few fish on the move, so that was incouraging.  There are fish in system, but spread out.  There is rain forecast for next week, hopefully that will bring in more fish.

There are a few Steelhead about on the Trinity but they have yet to show in any great numbers yet, some guys are getting a few here and there. We are expecting rain this coming week and that just might be the right medicine. Fishing on the Lower Klamath has been pretty good at times so hopefully those fish are on there way !

Had a great time guiding with Andrew Harris on the lower Sac with Paul, Jack, Lee & John. Between the two boats, it seemed there was always a fish on. The egg grab is slowly picking up but the real action has yet to come. 

Countless fish were fought and lost but a few really nice fish found their way to the net.

Had the pleasure of guiding Jim and son Kavi from Davis. We floated from Bonnyview and experienced complete solitude. The grab was fairly consistent with a few hogs breaking off early on. Being their first time ever nymphing from a drift boat they both caught on early and did great!

Guided Matt & Craig from Nevada City. We're seeing a few salmon here and there, but it's still a little early. As we all know it just takes a little rain to push in some fresh steelies. Matt landed several half pounders but the real excitement of the day was when Craig found himself in an intense battle against a fresh salmon that ultimately broke him off in the brush! We had a nice quiet day though as we passed only 2 other boats and one bank angler near the end of the float.

The fishing was up and down all day today for us on the Lower Sac.  Clients Michael and Andy struggled all morning with just a handful of opportunities.  Then fishing was excellent for a couple hours after lunch.  We had tons of hookups on nymphs and also had some fun wading and fishing a hopper-dropper rig.  Then the action slowed down again in the last hour of the day.  We landed fish up to 18" today.  No sign of salmon spawning just yet...

We had a really great day on the Lower Sac today.  Clients Bob & Rich landed several really big fish in the 3 pound range and Bob landed one about 5 pounds that would have been a good fish on a steelhead trip on the Trinity!  I am really impressed by the size of the fish we saw today.  We floated Posse Grounds to Anderson and fishing pressure was really light.  We did very well all morning, then things got tough for a couple hours in the afternoon.  We finished off with a few nice fish near Anderson.  The wind really came up in the afternoon and that seemed to put the fish off the bite.  Flows are down to 8000cfs.
