Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: PMD's, Stoneflies, & Caddis!: 4 stars

With the summer flows running at 12,400 cfs, floating larger sections of the river is much more realistic. Yesterday we covered nearly fifteen miles of the Lower Sacramento River and had a great day! The weather was sunny throughout the day and the temperature on the river never passed 95 degrees, so while everyone else was roasting at 104, we were happily surrounded by views of Mt. Lassen and Shasta (not to mention all of the bluffs and wildlife such as deer, eagles, and other birds). The morning was sllllooowwwww but we broke out the box with a couple of nice fish, including a nearly 18 incher on a Peaches n' Cream. While there weren't a lot of bugs in the morning, by the time we got into the afternoon, bugs were coming off steadily and we did well on PMD's, rubber legs, and some caddis. Lots of the grabs on the PMD flies were subtle, so you really have to be on the watch or you'll miss those fish but when many of these trout eat a rubber legs... THEY EAT THE RUBBER LEGS. The afternoon fished really well and we had plenty of grabs and caught a good number of fish in a few hours of time. While we had plenty of back to backs, we never doubled up, so there's something to shoot for next time! Get out soon and fish this fantastic northern California fishery that pumps out some really nice fish!
