The Upper Sacramento

The Upper Sac has nearly forty miles of quick and easy access beginning with crystal clear springs just minutes from our home. While Native American guides introduced productive nymphing techniques on this river before the turn of the century, we feel the Sac is an ideal location to explore a variety of successful techniques and tactics. The Upper Sac is an amazingly rich and productive freestone stream and home to the Shasta Rainbow Trout, which grows hearty on the diversity of aquatic life the river affords. Our walk and wade adventures are designed to develop versatile approaches to take advantage of the endless variety of scenic riffles, runs, pools and pocket water this river hosts. The river trails in spring are lined with amazing wildflower displays, with fall months featuring wild blackberry feasts. Plan on sharing your experience with ouzels, osprey and otters.
