Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Summer Brought Her "A" Game...: 4 stars

Summer made her way up to the Sacramento River and she definitely brought her "A" game. After missing two fish early in the day, she shook it off and then began pillaging big fish. We boated a 22+ inch certified #troutpig along with a handful of 18+ inch toads. The fishing AND the catching was really good today, which brings me to an important observation. If you take you drift serious and take the time to mend well, you'll get your flies in front of more fish... and if the stars line up you just might put some big fish in the net. Fishing is obviously a bit of luck, but Summer demonstrated that all off her casting practice and fishing experience was worth it! The highlight was definitely Summer's 22+inch fish taking her into her backing and us chasing the fish down river and finally getting it in the net! Epic!!

Flow wise, the river is coming down and I think it was around 8,000cfs today. I think I saw one caddis all day but despite the lack of bugs fluttering around, the fish were all caught on rubber legs, caddis, and some tiny top-secret micro-sized flies, ha ha! The river is super clear and fish seem to be in riffles, deep runs, and lots of in-between locations. Changing up your depth isn't a bad idea, especially with the dropping river and wading is definitely more of an option. That will only continue to develop as the flows keep coming down. The egg bite is just around the corner but truth be told, the fishing is great, so why wait? Book a trip today because I'd love to take you out. Whether it's your first time on the river or you've been out a lot, let's get on the water!
