Fall Fishing is off to a slow but steady start. Weather is suppose to cool off over the next few days and I even saw some rain in the extended forecast. This should help kick things into gear. With all the salmon in the rivers we should see spawning salmon through November and fishing on the L. Yuba, Feather, and L. Sac should be good to great through the end of the year.
Lower Yuba – Flows are higher then usual this time of year. The egg bite is slow to start but there are salmon up on redds and trout behind them in a few areas. There are also plenty of trout still holding in bug water eating nymphs and feeding on evening caddis hatches. Look for fishing to be good through the end of the year.
Lower Feather – The low flow and high flow has TONS of salmon in them. Talked to a few people whom have gone over and fished the feather and they had trouble fishing the riffles with all the salmon. The flows in the high flow should drop soon and fishing through out the river for fall and winter steelhead should get going.
Lower Sacramento – There are a ton of salmon moving up the L. Sac this fall and many have made it all the way up to Redding and the egg bite should get going any time now. Fishing on the L. Sac for trout on steelhead should be great this year through the first of the year.
Fall and winter are great times of year to get out fishing. Below are some available fall and winter dates. Also check out hgb fly fishing on facebook.

New Toons for dark drives to the river and lonely drives home in the twilight
Fall always signals a lot of new music. Not sure if it is the approaching holiday season or just the approaching dark and rain that make artists realease new albums. Here is my list of must listens:
Out Now: Patterson Hood “Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance” , Band of Horses “Mirage Rock” , Mumford and Sons “Babel” , Ryan Bingham “Tomorrowland” , Dinosaur Jr. “I bet on sky”
Oct. 16 Ben Gibbard “Former Lives”
Oct. 22 Gary Clark Jr. “Blak and Blu”
Drinks that were at one time illegal due to the Volstead Act
Time to go dark on the beer and the water…
I cracked a bottle of 18year Glenlivet the other night and bought a 12 pack of Sierra Nevada Tumbler. Tumbler is a great fall beer and there is nothing bad about 18year glen. I have yet to buy a handle of Jameson but a few more weeks and I am sure it will be sitting top shelf in the pantry.
Yes the Irish are 4-0 and ranked in the top ten. It is a great feeling!!! We got a bye week and then we got the convicts of Miami at Soldier Field. Great to renew the Catholics vs. the Convicts bowl.
