Fly Fishing on the Lower Sacramento River remains hot!

Tom lands a Lower Sac trophy 'bow May 18-25th

While the weather has turned cool and unstable, fly fishing on the Lower Sacramento has remained hot.  Midday hatches of small mayflies, mostly PMD’s and Pinks have big Rainbows on the grab.  During non hatch periods Rubberlegs and egg patterns are finding fish consistently.  Flows are scheduled to increase from 9500 to 10,500 on May 27th and 11,500 cfs on the 28th bringing them back up to normal for the season.

Thomas lands his first Lower Sac Rainbow, a trophy! This week Gabe Duran, Chris King, Chuck Volckhausen, Fred Gorndon and Craig Nielsen treated several guests to outstanding days including a father son group, Thomas and Tom along with a couple brothers, Brett and Casey.  Tom fishes somewhat regularly but this was his first visit to the Lower Sac.  His father Thomas hadn’t fly fished before and still managed to land a lunker!  They enjoyed some fine weather and many big Rainbows!

A big 'bow brings a big smile! Casey with one of many of his fine Rainbows on his first day fly fishing Brett received a gift certificate for a trip from his father, a longtime Shasta Trout friend and treated brother Casey to a float on the Lower Sac.  Brett is new to fly fishing and this was Casey’s first trip.  They did not take long to get up to speed,  finding fish after fish late morning in a couple runs and then continuously through out the day.  What a great treat.
