We started off March with heavy rains. Norther California and Souther Oregon rivers swelled with much needed water. Some rivers didn’t become fishable for the entire month. Among the rivers that did settle was the Sacramento. The upper sac is still pushing with good amounts of water but plenty of fishing exists from the bank and fish are available within striking distance. The lower sac has dropped well into shape and flows from Shasta lake are back to low. The fishing has been in the “red hot” category for now and we expect great fishing to continue for the next couple months.
Shasta Lake filling up
When a bunch of steelhead guides get out to go fishing, we spend a good amount of time chilling on the side of the river laughing at each other. All part of a great day on the water!
Anthony and I took out the jet boat! Talk about a fun toy. We drove around on the big river and up some of the small creeks. They weren’t so small at the time though.The Sac is back and the fat rainbows that live here are on the feed.
