Yuba River Fishing Image

Yuba River Report by Ben Thompson

I had my first yuba trip since the last big storm yesterday and it went very well. There was a suprising amount of bugs around- I saw skwalas, march browns, lots of pmds and a few caddis. The color of the water is excellent and the river is in good shape. If anyone says that it has been scoured out from the high flows- don't believe it. The river was just over 5,000 cfs yesterday and is definitely big. We hunted down slower water and found eager fish. Our outlook for the rest of spring is great, once the weather warms up the hatches will probably get huge and provide good action both nymphing and throwing dries.

Lower Sac Report by Luke Geraty

Conditions were bad... real bad. But due to the schedules, we couldn't move to another day. So we gave it our all and did our best to not get skunked. In that regard, Art and Tom were successful.Water is super muddy on the Lower Sac, but I imagine it will bounce back pretty quick. Though we tried EVERYTHING, we only seemed to manage hooking fish on eggs and a black caddis. Didn't see a lot of bugs. Considering how muddy the river was, I'd say that the half dozen fish we managed to hook was a decent measure of some sort of success. Usually it's hard NOT to hook a dozen plus fish on the Sac, it felt like hooking ANY was above expectations. But fishing hard and keeping a positive attitude surely makes a difference... and that we did!I'm sure the rivers around here will be back in order soon and I'm looking forward to hitting it hard this Spring. Now is a good time to be thinking about getting a day on the books because April is some of our finest fishing! Let's go!

Lower Sac Report by Ben Thompson

I spent the last two days on the Lower Sac and fishing was fantastic. My guests caught great numbers of fish, quality fish, and the hatches were absolutely going off in proper spring fashion. There was bwos, pmds, sallies and midges hatching throughout different parts of each day and the fish were on the chew. We saw some rain, some wind and some hail but it did not negatively affect the fishing. Rain often kick certain hatches into higher gear making the fishing even better. We have some more sporatic rain in the forecast for Redding but most days it just here and there, most days are just scattered showers and some overcast and some sun.
