DePuy Spring Creek

DePuy Spring Creek

Just back from a road trip to WY/MT in time for the shoulder season here in Dogpatch. This is the time of year I lick my chops for the many choices that start to present themselves in the area. Both the Upper Sac and McCloud River have shown improvement in their fishing. The fish are starting to get active with the cooler water and cooler days/nights. Caddis, caddis and more caddis are showing on both rivers so make sure you have some Fox Poopahs, Birds Nest, Split Wing Caddis, EC Caddis and Elk Hare Caddis on hand. The "mythical" October Caddis are also pupating now so think about Cased Caddis and October Caddis emergers. Reports of some nice fish have been coming in on both rivers and it will only get better. Also reports of steelhead half pounders and adults are trickling in for the Trinity, Rogue, and Klamath (we know this river better than anyone). The salmon are arriving on the Lower Sac and the spawning fish will kick in the egg bite there. Don't miss out on this excitement .... so many choices, so many rivers and so little time. Drift, walk/wade, spey, single handed NO PROBLEM! Wild Waters Fly Fishing will be more than happy to get you out on any of these rivers, CALL NOW and book a trip!!
