Final McCloud Days  

Final McCloud Days
 

The last two weeks on the McCloud River have been great. Silly numbers one day, the largest Rainbow I have ever seen caught another, big Brownies, and fall colors worthy of a portrait. The weather cooled, then it rained, and then the river lit up. It has been excellent fishing since but alas she closes this Sunday, November 15 for a much needed rest. Mark your calendar April 30, 2016 is when she opens again. In the mean time rest well this winter you beautiful living being, those of us who have been seduced by you will be back ... God willing.
 

The Upper Sacramento River keeps rocking with the upper sections still showing many October Caddis. You are not going to get fish to come up on your big Oct. Caddis imitations on every cast but now is a good time to cast away with a dry/dropper setup. The fish are so anxious after seeing the ovipositing from these guys the last month that they can no longer control themselves. The suicidal fish just gotta have one of these choice bugs and their resistance meter is at zero. The lower sections have also been fishing well but your best bet on getting into fish is nymphing with my favorite choices .... LBS!!! Remember this river is open all winter but regs switch over t catch and release ... no bait, dynamite or hand grenades.

The Klamath River is giving up some very good steelhead days now. The Wild Waters Fly Fishing guys are covering the river from Happy Camp up to Iron Gate Dam and reporting good numbers of fish with fresh fish mixed in. Recent rains are helping things out along with a big temperature drop in the water. If you like this river or have thought about it now is the time to get on it.

The Lower Sac is producing some nice fish as reported by Wild Waters Fly Fishing guides and the "egg bite" is still on. Another excellent choice I must say.
