A few of us have been fishing the Upper Sacramento River again this week and it continues to to fish exceptionally well with near ideal spring like conditions.  Flows remain exceptionally low and clear and fish are active from Cantara all the way downstream to Lake Shasta.  Small spring caddis are popping on sunny afternoons along with some lingering Blue Wing Olive Mayflies.  While nymphing has been most productive, some searching may put you on a pod of rising Rainbows. Pick any section of river you like, you will undoubtedly have it to yourself, and wet a line!  A number of large fish have come to hand as this is the time of year when landing a trophy from this classic freestone is most likely.  With more great weather in the forecast consider this your complimentary notice to get here now.

Drop us a line for details or to schedule a day with one of our great local guides.
