Guide Notes

Ted Fay Report : October 6, 2015

Rick Cox

McCloud 19 Inch Gorgeous Rainbow The last week on the McCloud River has produced some nice fish for happy clients. Yep, the water is clouded and visibility murky but with about 6 weeks left to fish this river it's time to stop whinning and just do it. Fall colors are beginning, leaves are dropping, and the mystical October Caddis are arriving ... plus the current 10 day forecast is showing excellent weather. Heads up, the river canyon is losing the sun and the water is getting COLD particularly in the morning so layer up. Success in bringing fish to the net has been achieved by nymphing, dry/dropper and streamers. ATTENTION!! The McCloud River fall season (one of two) is here, bring your A Game.

The Upper Sac has been solid since the water temps have dropped. Again the Fall colors are starting up and the October Caddis are starting their show. The water is late season normal flow, in other of words there is plenty of water. Hatches are still not quite there thus rising fish are persnickety. I have to say the entire river is worth nymph fishing and as the nights continue to get longer look for early and late top surface action with a stimmie/dropper or a double dry fly setup. A heads up the Dunsmuir area has been on fire for truck trout for those who like the frequent tug.

Quick note the steelhead are showing now on the Trinity, Klamath, and Rogue. I did a quick trip up to the Rogue yesterday and floated it with Buster, well worth the trip.
