Yuba River: , by Ben Thompson: Yuba River Hoppers: 3 stars

I had a fun day of hopper fishing on Friday with some skilled clients. I have spent the majority of my summer doing hopper trips on the Lower Yuba. Many days the bite has been good and we have thrown hoppers all day, and other days the bite was slow so we switched to nymphing and started catching more fish. August is one of my favorite months for hopper fishing. Swinging has also been productive and is a good way to cool off and practice spey casting skills before steelhead season is upon us. Water temps are great on the Yuba and the fish are healthy.
