Guide Notes

April 26, 2018

Rick Cox

Upper Sacramento River

The river is in fantastic shape, the best we have seen it in a number of years. Recent trips and reports are indicating good to very good fishing. We are seeing some very nice fish bending rods from Ney Springs down to Delta. Flows and conditions will spoil you, it's been quite some time since we have seen this great river in such excellent shape for early season. May should be outstanding, as the warmer weather settles into the canyon the hatches will continue to increase and as we all know around here May and June are the best dry fly fishing with multiple hatches of Golden Stones and a variety of Mayflies and Caddis. Get on up here, enjoy the fun and give us a call.

McCLOUD RIVER

The McCloud River like the Upper Sacramento is in excellent shape and should remain so due to the lack of a big snowpack. A recon trip was made recently down to Ah Di Nah and I am happy to report the road is open. Beware though there are a few narrow but passable slides....as usual though the road sucks and the crawl is still there. The campground is fine, looked great but the water had not been turned on yet thus no toilets. Check with the McCloud Ranger Station for the latest on the camp water. Fishing here too should be stellar for you early birds.
