Lower Sac: , by Kevin Kay: Hot Day, Warm Water: 3 stars

Attention! Due to low water levels in Lake Shasta the Lower Sac is running much higher water temps than usual, I’ve heard around 10 degrees hotter. This is a big deal to fish that are used to living in very cold water year round. We’re trying to land our fish quickly, keep them in the water, and taking plenty of time reviving them. ‘Nuff said. Alan and his son Noah come up and fish with me a couple times a year. The horrid winds of the last four days calmed down somewhat and were fairly tolerable. As has been my experience lately, morning was slow, midday was pretty good, and late afternoon shut off entirely. The fish started off eating PMD nymphs, then switched to rubberlegs. Then I noticed lots of Little Yellow Sally stoneflies popping off, put on that fly, and bingo! Funny how that works......
In the end Father and Son had a good day on the river, catching native rainbow trout in a a beautiful setting. And it was only 95 degrees!
