Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: All. Day. Long.: 4 stars

Fly fishing isn't all about numbers of fish, but sometimes you have days where you can say that the hooking and catching of fish was literally all. day. long. Yesterday was one of those days again and we brought dozens of fish to the net. Kevin Kay and I had a group trip with Mike, his son, and some buddies. Three of the four had fly fished before and one was brand new... so we did the standard casting lesson and Corey was catching fish in no time. By the end of the day he was a great caster and expert at mending, which is probably why he went home with a sore arm from reeling in all of those fish, ha ha! We hooked fish from the start of the day until the very end, primarily on bugs but with a fair amount on eggs. Things are seeming to slow down by 3pm, but even after the "feeding cut off," we still managed to get a few more. Salmon are spread throughout the system and it will only improve as we move forward. We're starting to see more boats on the river but there is so much river to fish that it's pretty easy to get away from the crowds and have the river all to ourselves. As you can tell by the photos, lots of beautiful trout caught and some beautiful scenery to match! Hard not to love days like yesterday because the weather was pretty great all day (minus a moment of wind), the people were cool, and the fish were willing. Book a trip now because Confluence can put you on fish! 

Corey caught this fish despite keeping a tight line... because he's the luckiest person I know.
