The Shasta Trinity Fly Fishers scheduled a fishout on the Upper Sacramento River that fizzled a bit so their Upper Sacramento River Fishmaster joined me for a morning to explore and compare notes. Conditions could not have been better. Flows are low and clear so we opted for a midriver area Gerald hadn’t yet seen where water temps have dropped to 56 degrees. The bugs (a few early BWO’s, PED Spinners, Black Fly larvae & MicroCaddis) were out and about and the fish approved. In just a short while we mangaged to hook a dozen and half wild rainbows and brought about half of them to hand including a couple dandies. With fall hatches just days away the fishing should get very exciting in the near future. We are looking forward to getting together again when the leaves have a bit more color and the October Caddis and Blue Wing Olives are fattening big ‘bows.
