Fishing was great! Most fish ate the dry fly. Plenty were caught on nymphs. Flows are still high but this should not stop you from fishing here. We didn’t see another person fishing all day. Memorial Weekend? Yes, I was on the public water. >>SEE MORE, READ MORE!!! Continue Reading →
With the river at almost twice its normal May size (3260 cf/s) and rain on the forecast, things don’t look good for Spring fishing. Some sunshine would really help turn things around. Keep your eyes on these postings. When the Salmon flies do show up, we’ll be the first to know.
The hatch happened for most of the day, and the fish were looking up. >> see more pics Continue Reading →
All May the Lower Sac has been fishing great. The crowds are down and the bite is on. PMD’s, Big Rubber Legs, Eggs are the hot ticket. There will still be great fishing for another week or two until they ramp up the flows. Get on it soon!!! >>LOTS OF PICS HERE! Continue Reading →
I have proof! Open this and check em out on the Klamath River Hall of Fame.
One of the biggest browns we have ever seen, every cast these monsters should be in the back of your mind. A big fish on the McCloud is 16 inches but this was almost twice as long. Continue Reading →
One of my personal biggest. You can see why the Trinity river is a favorite of many Northern California Steelheaders
Day after day this river kicks down some of the country’s largest native rainbows. Pat caught one
As we are adding our biggest and best fish under Pigs, Hogs, Toads and Whales here’s a Winter 2011 big buck caught on the Smith.
Showered, shaved and wearing a suit and tie (my blood knots are better than my neckties) I attended the Cal Trout Gala in San Francisco. The Four Seasons hosted dedicated fisherman and conservationist with cocktails and fine food, while fish stories and tales were spun by all. I think I had the only fish story from that day, as I guided the Lower Sac that morning and catching some great fish.
Cal Trout has done so much to protect out valuable fishing resources and I ardently support their efforts. It was a pleasure to party with such great people. Cal Trout recently launched their new website. Check out: http://caltrout.org/ Next year go to the Gala and raise a glass with me to a fabulous group of hard working conservationist, who I call friends.
Happy to be joining up with John in Wild Waters. In the past our careers have combined on work days often and fish days more. With our combined experience and talent a great guide service just got better.
With 16 clients, 4 of the best regional guides, on a river 3 times its normal size the Opener treated us to hundreds of fish. Yes Hundreds. Great rainbows to 16″ and a few nice browns to 18″ Continue Reading →
