North Umpqua Reunion & Shasta Area Fly Fishing Report

I just finished unpacking from ten days celebrating another(!) bday on the North Umpqua with friends and family.  We camped, fished, ate, drank, swam, hiked, toured Crater Lake, wine tasted and partied as if we were much younger.  Many thanks to the friends who joined us again to kick off the steelhead season in style: Jerri, John, Lisa, Stan, Julie & Mike, Stacy & Trevor, Wrena & Bella, Tim & Katie, Tim & Judy, Ed & Melinda, Gui, Jim, Dave & Judy, Pete, Peter, Zach & Kellie, Brian, Adrian & Family, Tony & Averi, and the many others who stopped by to share a drink, a bite and of course a fishing tale.

IMG_2466IMGP0009Weather and conditions were great, there were a few early fish around and most folks where able to hook up.  We plan and hope to return next year for more fun and frolic, we hope to see you there!

IMGP0005I returned home to find fine fishing.  With the warm weather, mornings and evenings are wonderfully comfortable and evening hatches continue to be magical. I’ve been focusing on the wild trout in the Upper Sac and McCloud which are in good shape with plenty of cold water as well as Lake Siskiyou which has some surface action for smallies and an evening Hex hatch.   Drop me a line if you can make it up this way as I do have a few openings and would enjoy nothing more than sharing the magic with you.
