Upper Sac, April 19th & 22nd

Big Beautiful Rainbow Spring!

On the way home from the Spey Casting Clinic Sunday on the Lower Sac I took the opportunity to check out the flows and fishing on the lower portion of the Upper Sac.  The exceptionally warm weather has been bringing up flows dramatically and I was interested in seeing what the river looked like and the impact on the fishing.   After an all day CPR and First Aid Class on Tuesday, I was also itching to get out so on Wednesday I drove to some runs midriver where I have done well during high flows in the past.  On both occassions I found fish on the grab but the increase in flows by Wednesday dramatically reduced the amount of fishable water as well as the water clarity.  On each occassion I found fish willing to sample a dry but not suprisingly had more consistent success fishing the deeper softer flows with nymphs.  The bugs are really starting to pop.  I can’t wait for the cooler temps in the forecast and expect the river to really turn on when the flows drop back down.
