Fishing report

Guided the L. Sac this weekend with my buddy Kevin Price. Floated from Boneview to Anderson. Visability was about 6"to 1' around Bonnie and cleared a bit once we got around Redding RV to about 2'. Bottom line was it was off color but fishing was good. I had a mom and 12 year old daughter who had hever fished but with a quick lesson they weren't doing to bad. Kevin had dad and his buddy so they were on fish most of the day with a few 20"+ fish and one nice steelhead. We were missing fish for a awhile but managed a few head shakes and runs. It took mom and daughter a while to put the whole thing together and get some fish to the net. At the end of the day mom had a nice steelhead tear her up and leave a mass of flesh and scales on her rubber leggs. Didn't really know what to do...me screaming let it run didn't register.

Good thing was that there was plenty of action. Fish were eating rubber legs, Oregon Cheese Eggs, Amber wing princes, zug bugs, etc. Standard stuff really but the smaller bugs didn't start getting eaten until we got down to about RV and the water cleared a bit. Overall good day on the river. Over and Out.

  1. Quick lesson for mom and daughter on the finer points of KP's fishing techniques I hear.
