Right in the gut of summer here in Dogpatch and the fishing is about par for mid summer. Both rivers are showing the effects of the hot days and will probably remain so till the nights start cooling off when the bugs wake up again. In the mean time my recommendation for both the McCloud and the Upper Sac is the family of LBS (little black shit) for flies ... see my last report. Get the darn things down near the bottom, fish the heavier water right in the mist of the boil, and hit those transition seams. If you want some dry fly action then get up EARLY and head out before the shade disappears. That's where, until the sun hits the water, you will see big heads sipping BWO's in the tailouts. You get one shot at these educated guys so be stealthy and hang on.
If you have any further questions please call the shop and when you are in the area stop in and bug Bob ... he's lonely this time of year.
