Lower Sac Fishing Image
June 6, 2023
Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

The Lower Sac wasn't on FIRE for us, but Lloyd and Alan both hooked some REALLY nice fish on our recent float. Alan had the hot stick and put some monster fish in the net, almost all on size 14 caddis nymphs. Lloyd is one of the coolest 90 year old anglers I've ever fished with and we had a lot of fun talking about all of his steelheading expeditions... plus he could cast, mend, set the hook, and put 'em in the net too! Weather was a little cooler and on yet another day of seeing lots of PMDs, the fish just seemed to prefer caddis. That's getting a little frustrating because my aresonal of PMD nymphs is getting a steady rotation, yet they just aren't getting grabbed nearly as much as the caddis. Hmmm. Typical Lower Sac. I'm sure when there are ten billion caddis fluttering around, the mayfly nymphs will get it done. On a side note... did you know that salmon fishing is closed in California? I'm starting to think that this year's "egg bite" may be off the charts good because there SHOULD be a lot more salmon in the system... at least that's what I'm hoping! Might wanna start thinking about booking trips from Sept. 15-Nov. 15 NOW! They will book soon! Anyway... off to dream about those fish that got away!

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Had a two boat trip with Kevin Kay and the fishing started out a little slow but by the late morning and early afternoon, we got into 'em! Weather was a little weird for June, as we had some rain and clouds... but the fish didn't seem to mind! Caddis, PMDs, stoneflies... pretty much everything hooked fish! We had several doubles and other than two smaller fourteen inch fish, everything was over 18 inches! Quality fish were landed, quality fish were lost (all of them were over 30 inchers because no one can prove it, ha ha!). We ended the day with a double and just as we were getting off, BWO's started popping off. I wonder what would have happened if we were on a little longer :)

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Spent a day with Ryan and his wife on the Lower Sac and we fished from Posse to Bonneyview... twice! The bugs were moving around pretty early on and we caught some nice fish throughout the day, mostly on caddis and a few random mayflies. Saw a lot of PMDs but the fished were definitely eating poopahs and other caddis imitations. The temp was pretty much perfect -- not too hot and not too cold. The quality of these lower Sac trout is amazing and it's hard not to get excited when you see 18+ inch fish consistently hooked! Let's go!
