The Yuba River is on!

The Yuba River is finally down to just over 3,000 cfs. The guys have been hooking good numbers of fish to 22 inches on both dries and nymphs. This is a great time to get out and give the Yuba a go!

The Shad are in!

Guide Dave Barbieri has been fly fishing recently with clients and finding good numbers of Shad on the lower Yuba River. He has had trips with double digits on Trout and Shad despite high water. Dave has private access to the lower river and has this area figured out.

A day to remember...two old fishing pals...two flies and 232 Bass in one day!

This past Saturday a friend and I had a fly fishing day for the ages. Dr Eric Herve has been fishing pal of mine for a number of years now. We have had countless adventures together. From attempting to turn my Chevy Silverado into a drift boat on the Yuba, to random incidents and great fishing memories.

Fly fishing legend Billy Pate passes away.

Billy Pate a legendary tarpon fisherman passed away April 18 at the age of 81. He was a remarkable angler and someone that inspired me to first want to fish for Tarpon. My first recollection of him was in a video clip from a Scientific Anglers 3M video that I saw at Kiene's about 15 years ago. His manic pursuit of "larrge Tarrrpon" as he used to say in a southern drawl led him to become an expert's expert. He frequented the Florida Keys and everglades and his boat with large custom casting platform with foam covered pipes bouncing down the road also became legendary.
