Fishing Reports

Lower Sac Fishing Image
February 28, 2024
Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Flows on the Lower Sac got up to nearly 40,000cfs over the past week, but the good news is that they are going to be dropping down to 19,000 this Friday. That means that it's time to start planning your Lower Sac spring fishing! Just before the flows spiked, I took a buddy out to do a little recon trip and the fishing was great. BIG fish... fair amount of mayflies around (BWO's and PMD's too)... plus we saw some caddis. The weather was sunny and then got a little cloudy, so everything had it's prefered climate! And geez... those Lower Sac trout are BIG and can pull hard. I hadn't been on the Sac for awhile since I've been basically living on the Trinity, but I can't wait to get out there and chase more of those native trout! Now's a great time to put a day on the books. Let's go! First time or millionth time, we got you covered!

Trinity River Fishing Image

Trinity River Report by Luke Geraty

Well the Trinity has been up and down, filled with highs and lows. But of course, that's steelheading. I had two days with Chuck and as always, we had a great time. The fishing on day one was full of action, but all smaller fish with nothing breaking the 20inch barrier. Our second day was much better and we hooked a handful of adults and also had a chance to swing some flies and work on the good 'ole spey cast. I think the Trinity should be a contender for a few more weeks before the season comes to a close. I have all of next week open, so get a day on the books NOW before it's too late! The fish of a thousand casts is totally worth your time and energy! Let's go!

Feather River Fishing Image

Feather River Report by Mat Squillante

The Feather's a good option right now with most rivers swollen from the recent rains and dam releases. The day produced a fair number of spunky, aerobatic, spring steelhead. These fish are known to get some air and several lived up to the reputation. The fishing is only getting started and it should improve over the next few months. With longer days, warming weather and hopefully, lower flows, there's more good fishing ahead.  TIP: Fish are like other predators, they don't feed non-stop all day. Typically, there are active feeding windows and then, lulls throughout most days. Use the down time to take a break, grab a snack, check out the wildlife or book a trip with us! Fish On!
