Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Soft hook sets, hook ups, and the one that escaped: 3 stars

With the warmer weather happening here in northern California, fish are starting to look up, up, up! At least that's what Dominic and his son Dom discovered on the Sacramento River on Saturday. These two guests were experienced anglers and could cast a fly rod really well, so they had no problem hooking fish on the top and below the surface. The bite has been pretty consistent between the 11:30am to 3pm time slot, and the Sac didn't disappoint. The weather was so nice that these two actually wet waded and caught fish in a number of nice riffles. Dominic actually hooked a really, really nice fish on a dry fly but ended up losing the fish when it wrapped itself around a submerged log. We were definitely disappointed but the great thing about dry fly fishing is geting to watch the eat and let me tell you... that fish crushed that fly! The sunny weather left me with a nice tan too, so all around an excellent day.
