Guide Notes

Ted Fay Report : June 8, 2016

Hot middays lately have put the funk on the fishing on the McCloud and Upper Sac midday but not in the evenings. The Upper Sac spiked to 600 cfs yesterday due to higher elevation runoff ( we still have snow up there) but looks like it is coming into great shape today. That along with about a 20 degree drop in temps through the weekend should put things in a happy place ... I am announcing game on for prime time fishing. The Golden Stone hatch has kicked in along with Drakes, Caddis and assorted Mayflies so for you die hard dry fly dudes it won't get any better than now. Midday nymphing should be solid on both rivers and I would start thinking small bugs for increasing your success rate. This of course means my favs the all popular LBS family which I have detailed below. June is here and always offers some of the best fishing in the North State so pack em up and get up here.
