McCloud River Fishing Report
The McCloud River continues to give up some great fishing. The river is in fantastic shape with showery weather mixing in with sunny days. The wild Azaleas are in full bloom and their fragrance makes you wonder if you are in a perfume shop. Bring your raincoat for those unexpected thunderstorms and bring your game face, the McCloud River has been giving up some beautiful fish. The Golden Stones are out and about and we have been having good luck with a big Stimulator or Chubby Chernobyl with your favorite dropper hanging off of them. Think stealth too, the clarity of the water is a good 4-5 ft. so skinny up on that tippet. It's that time of year and folks are coming out of the wood works to enjoy this gorgeous river thus we entitle it The McCrowd..... Ah Di Nah Campground was full up yesterday with more sports rolling in.
Give us a shout here at Wild Waters Fly Fishing, we would love to help you enjoy this fabled river.
Upper Sacramento River Fishing Report
The Upper Sacramento River is and has been a terrific option for fishing this Spring. It is starting to sound like a broken record .... good to excellent. Flows remain at a healthy 400-500 cfs with many choices for you to play. The top end from Dunsmuir up river is still seeing a good number of Salmonflies and from mid river (Sims) upstream the Goldens are popping out. The lower river is all about Caddis, Caddis and more Caddis. Cool showery days are producing excellent hatches around midday. Nymphing remains very solid so think about Birds Nest, Poopahs, LBS and soft hackles. This is river is a great option during these busy holiday weekends, you have about 35 miles of accessible water to pick and choose from.
If you have any further questions please call the shop and when you are in the area stop in and bug Bob.
