State of Jefferson (Northern California and Southern Oregon) Fishing Report

The team at Wild Waters has been busy. Last week we’ve had some windy days with a substantial temperature drop, but still had some great trips. Most of our days are spent on the Upper and Lower Sacramento and the McCloud River. On the McCloud we have been mainly throwing dry flies. Mid-day yellow sallies and pmd’s are making the bite last throughout the day. Once the big goldens start dropping down from the trees around 5 pm the big rainbows turn to them and throwing the big bug can make for some awesome grabs. The Upper Sac is also fishing well with dry flies. Golden Stones everywhere!!  Take a look at some great photos from last week. We so appreciate all the business and look forward to taking you fishing soon.

Northern California Southern Oregon Fishing Report

Here in the great State of Jefferson, the fishing has been very good. Its June and the dry fly action is at its best. The snow melt has subsided and we are at our summertime low flows.

After a month into the season, many of the fish have wised up and are only taking the best presentations. I’ve been fishing the Orvis Superfine Glass rod and loving its delicate placement of the fly. Its dry fly time!

Steelhead fishing is “AWESOME”

At Wild Waters Fly Fishing we are passionate about our Steelhead fishing.  A day like this is what we live for, we crushed it, and having my dad in the front of the boat made the experience all that much better.  When I was young I would steal his fishing vest and fly rod and head to the river.  I wonder if he ever thought it would be to his fishing benefit that I did…  Deep down, I think so…  Thanks Dad.
