Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Red hot fire on the Lower Sac: 5 stars

I usually reserve the phrase "red hot" for the Fall, speciifcally most days in October. But today was one for the books. Kevin Kay and I floated down by Anderson and below and it was on fire... fiiiyyyaaaa! When we got started there were bugs everywhere (caddis, mayflies, & crane flies). I immediately hooked a nice healthy fish on a rubber legs in some fast water and the day was off to the races. Between 10am and 3pm, the fishing was pretty much nonstop with just a few short lulls inbetween. We hooked and landed dozens of big lower Sacramento River 'bows, with our largest fish being just a hair over 18 inches and most being around 15 to 16 inches (cookie cutters). When I say that most were caught on a rubber legs, I mean to suggest that only three fish were caught on anything else... and trust me, we were trying to catch 'em on caddis! I should add that we also saw a few golden stones through out the day, but didn't hook any fish on the yellow sally flies. I like the UV Sally, so I'll be sure to keep using them because on certain days, yellow stoneflies crush. While we were out and out, we sent out the drone to get some footage (we'll have a river report up soon on YouTube) and nervously watched a band of turkey vultures chasing it a bit. Anyway, one thing is for sure... northern California has some of the most beautiful scenery and amazing trout fishing in the western United States. I'm blessed to have such a great "office." Book a trip today... you won't be sorry!
