Fine Tuning Fred's Technique In Preparation For Later

Fine Tuning Fred's Technique In Preparation For Later

Both the McCloud and Upper Sacramento Rivers are in excellent shape now. Clarity of the water is great so a bit of stealth is required. The McCloud has been crowded and will be through the 4th of July extended weekend. For both rivers mornings and evenings are the best time to be on the water and look for those shady spots midday. Some big fish were hooked this last week on an assortment of nymphs, take a look at the list below for the bugs that will get you into the game. It's July now, we have plenty of water unlike the previous drought years so this summer should offer excellent opportunities for you.
