Guide Notes

Ted Fay Report : July 20, 2016

Dog Daze have arrived but the fish have not taken their annual mid day vacation ... yet. Mild temps and plenty of cold water offer the right recipe for getting out there for you summer time anglers. The Upper Sac is starting to show some lake run bows (they migrate into the river from Shasta Lake in the summer) and hooking into one of these guys will put a jolt into your dentures ... it's like hooking into a mini steelhead on steroids. Think heavily oxygenated water and get your junk DOWN ... BTW 5x tippet will not cut it. Evening hatches right at dark thirty are still happening, go with a #14 or #16 Parachute Adams for best results and for you early birds who can get out of bed you can find hatches of Blue Winged Olives and PMD's in shaded flats. The McCloud is as always this time of year cranky but each day is different and one day will have you cussing and the next day whooping. Again fish the heavily oxygenated water, think pocket water too and get you junk DOWN. LBS are working best ... see my description below for those who do not know or remember.
