Things are warming up!!! 104 this weekend. July fishing is looking good and there are a lot of exciting things coming up.
Lower Sac outside of chico - Shad fishing is about peaked and while there are tons of shad still in the river to catch we have seen some slower evenings lately. Good news is we are starting to catch a few stripers and top water Large and Small mouth fishing is getting good. Late June through mid august is great for stripers and top water Large and Small mouth. Salmon season opens mid July and if it is anything like last year we will be catching good numbers of salmon as well through the summer on flies. Lots to do out there!!!!
Lower Sac Trout - Trout fishing on the L. Sac has tightened up but should get going again as the weather cools down next week. Mid summer trout fishing on the sac can be very good even with the hot weather.
Lower Yuba - has been very good and should see a great july. There are a ton of hoppers in the bushes and this heat over the next couple of days should force them down to the river. July is going to be great hopper fishing on the Yuba as there are more hoppers in the bushes then I have seen in a long time. Fished the river 2 days last week inbetween shad days and hooked some nice 18”+ fish on golden stone dries and hoppers along with good numbers of fish on nymphs. The flows are up and going to get higher over July so fishing the river from the drift boat is the way to go.
Lots of Goldens around in various spots right now as well with most fishing coming on stonefly nymphs, stonefly dries, and Hoppers.
North Fork Feather - has been fishing great with good numbers of nice size rainbows coming to the net. Flows should stablize over the next few weeks and I am going to be floating this in the raft a number of days in the next few weeks.
Small Stream Fishing - All the small streams outside of chico are in prime shape and should fish well through the end of June middle of July. Great time of year to get out of the heat and go wet wade some small streams.
Lots of good summer fishing coming up if anyone is interested look over the available dates listed below and shoot me an email or give me a call. For up to date fishing reports friend hgb fly fishing on face book or check out the blog at www.hgbflyfishing.blogspot.com.
