Lower Sac Fishing ReportPosted 4 days ago by Andrew Harris
We had a great day on the Lower Sac today.  The fish were chowing nymphs and dries in some of my favorite spots.  Kent from Tehachapi rose well over a dozen fish on dries after lunch, and the nymphing throughout the day was pretty outstanding.  There are PMDs, golden stones, and some caddis around right now.  Some nice fish are coming off the spawn and moving back into real trout water now.

Lewiston Lake Fishing ReportPosted Apr 17 by Andrew Harris
WINDI fled the valley floor today to escape the wind but it didn't work.  I took my client Kent from Tehachapi to Lewiston Lake.  We had about an hour of good fishing before lunch when we could spot cruising fish.  Kent caught a couple of nice rainbows before the wind came up.  After that it was whitecap city.  We eventually moved over to the Trinity River where we saw numerous salmonflies, but we couldn't tempt any fish.

Hosted Travel Fishing ReportPosted Apr 8 by Dax Messett
a few spots left for BC
I have 3 spots open for my annual trip to the ultimate steelhead destination of British Columbia.  Check out the details of this trip on our Hosted Travel link.  If you are a steelheader, you absolutely need to do this trip.  We will be fishing the sacred waters of the lower Skeena system during prime time.  All projections point to a stellar year in BC this year.
 
I just gave a presentation in Squamish BC at Brian Niska's Cast and Blast.  It was one of the most enjoyable fly fishing industry events I have ever attended.  Canadians are incredible fly tiers and anglers, as well as some of the nicest people you will ever run across on Earth.  Shoot me an e mail if you are interested in the BC Steelhead Experience, one of the finest angling opportunities the world has to offer.

Trinity River Fishing ReportPosted Mar 13 by Andrew Harris
I spent a really fun hour fishing the Trinity River on my own this afternoon.  The dry fly fishing is pretty good right now.  I landed two fat 16" browns on dries and had a shot at 3 others.  It isn't an easy game, but if you wait and watch you can be rewarded with a shot at a really nice wild trout on a dry fly.  There was a mixed hatch of march browns and caddis today.  The browns were eating both.  Hint of the day: look for the shade!  Prime-time is 1pm to 5pm for action on dries.

Feather River Fishing ReportPosted Mar 12 by Andrew Harris
half-pounders are in!I got to do something a little different today - guide the lower Feather River near Oroville.  This is a fishery that I used to guide quite a bit, but always in the fall for steelhead chasing salmon eggs.  The river also gets a spring run of half-pounders and adults.  We found quite a few today.  Most of our fish were 17-20" with one nice buck 21" or so.  Even the 14 inchers were feisty.  Feather River half-pounders look like silver bullets and fight really hard.  If you're looking for a trip over here let me know and I will get you set up with a good guide.  The season goes from early March through mid-May.
Olympic Peninsula WA Fishing ReportPosted Mar 12 by Dax Messett
Dropping into shape, finally
It was a long first week for me on the famed Olympic Peninsula in Washington.  Like most rivers on the West Coast, everything was blown up here.  Today we finally had fishable conditions, just barely.  Taking advantage of a day off, guide buddy Ryan Davie and I floated one of most beautiful steelhead rivers on the planet on a rare sunny day for the OP.  Ryan landed a stunning, gigantic wild hen in the last run we fished.  If you are only going to catch one, that is THE ONE!
 
Conditions will be perfect for this upcoming weekend.  I have no available days up here at the moment.  I might open up some days at the end of March and possible April after I get back from British Columbia.  Contact me if you are interested in fishing for the biggest winter steelhead on Earth.

Southern Oregon Fishing ReportPosted Mar 5 by Dax Messett
Superb Winter Steelheading on the Southern CoastIt has been an amazing year on the Southern Oregon Coast for the die hard winter steelhead anglers who have put in the time and commitment to the Big Game over the years.  We had so many amazing moments this year on the Coast...what an amazing place.  Conditions were still pretty good when I took off from there a few days ago.  I am now on the Olympic Peninsula, looking at blown out rivers...damn.  Thats the game though, and the rivers here needed some rain.  Conditions should be pretty epic here in a few days.  I have a full calendar here, but might open up a few days at the end of the month before I head to BC.  The game continues...

Upper Rogue Fishing ReportPosted Nov 1 by Tom April
Indian Summer SteelheadThe fishing has been pretty good on the Rogue River this week. The weather has been great with cold mornings and warm afternoons. It looks like were going to get some much needed rain this weekend. This rain should move the fish around and fishing should turn on even more!
Klamath River Fishing ReportPosted Oct 21 by Randy Hamann
New Arrivals
The Lower Klamath is a Beautiful place to be this time of year. The main run of salmon has already pushed through and so have all the salmon anglers, the river is left to the hard core steelhead angler willing to put in the time and effort for the big tug.
I guided father and son , Jim and Bob from the bay area over the weekend. The fishing was good, we hooked and landed multiple "chrome" steelhead to 4lbs. and a jack salmon, big steelhead eluded us but there were a few caught over the weekend.
The Lower Klamath is a hard place to beat this time of year, fresh bright steelhead, plenty of elbow room and classic swing water well suited for the spey rod.
Pit River Fishing ReportPosted Oct 8 by Andrew Harris
Great afternoon session
The rubberlegs was the key this afternoon on the Pit.  We spend time on various parts of  Fall River today but our afternoon on the Pit River was the best.  In under two hours, my client Chuck from Davis landed 5 really nice rainbows.  The biggest was 18" and well over 2 pounds.
Fall River Fishing ReportPosted Oct 7 by Andrew Harris
Pillage Fest
I had a great time on Fall River today guiding long-time clients Dick and Chuck.  We had some outstanding dry fly fishing until about 2:30pm when the wind came up.  Dick and Chuck landed matching 19" rainbows on dry flies.  Most of the fish were really fat and healthy, too.  In the afternoon we had a nymphing pillage-fest with many fish from 16-19" in the net.
 
There is a good callibaetis hatch right now.  There are some smaller mayflies too.  The river is fishing really well!

McCloud River Fishing ReportPosted Aug 11 by Andrew Harris
Bollibokka Club
Gino and I just finished up three days of guiding on the Bollibokka Club on the McCloud River.  What a place!  The lodging and cooking facilities are excellent.  When you drive into the property it feels like you're stepping back into history.  The river itself is the same McCloud you would recognize from the public water upstream, just bigger.  There are also more long flat sections and riffles.  There are definitely some large rainbows on the Bollibokka, although they are not easy to catch.  The McCloud River down there is a very physically demanding river and the fish are no easier to catch than on any other part of the McCloud.  The allure is the privacy, the diversity of water types, the trail system, the history, and the presence of some larger fish.

pocket water galore
There are many smooth sections like this
Lots of beautiful riffles
Is this a spotted bass?
