Fly Fishing Guide Trip Reports for Northern California Rivers
We enjoyed another week of stellar guided fly fishing on the Lower Sacramento River, Upper Sac, Pit and Klamath Rivers. The week started out sunny followed by showers but the fish were wet already so they didn’t notice the change.
The Lower Sacramento was exceptional for the action, numbers of fish as well as the size of the fish we found. We hooked several trophy fish including a couple that would make a season, let alone your day. We even landed a couple while the biggest ones got away of course. One fish was so hot, it freight trained upstream with so much power we thought at first is was a Salmon. It was not, but was Salmon sized.
Action on the Pit River continues to be good to epic with lots of bug activity and very grabby fish. The Upper Sac also picked up this week with a midday bite that was outstanding, including our best fish of the season, a twenty two inch fat and fiesty ‘bow. While the Steelhead fishing on the Klamath is not epic there are some fresh fish (mostly smaller) that are quite grabby particularly on the swing. We are averaging a half dozen or so per rod per day and have the place to ourselves, so if you aren’t quite ready to pack away your Steelhead gear come on up and join us to end your Steelhead season on a high note.
