Best Bets - Trinity Steelhead, Truckee River Trout, Pyramid Lake Cutthroats.

Delta Stiper - Poor to Fair Water Temp high 50’s degrees. Water Clarity – Muddy

Striper fishing continues to be tough on the Delta. Lots of rain and cold water have flooded the delta bringing brown water and very difficult conditions. Only the very hardiest of anglers have been going out right recently, but things can only improve. If you go use patterns that push water (1/0-2/0) with a rattle down low and slow.

Most days anglers are struggling to catch fish however Captain Bryce Tedford had a nice day this week with 20 fish to the boat including this fish above.

We will have to see what happens when the snow run off begins shortly however we are hoping/planning to be at it full tilt by mid March. With all the water it is going to be a good year on the Delta.

Call now to reserve your Spring days for March, April and May. Call the shop at (916)722-1055 or Off the Hook at (707)287-2939 to get out with Maury, Bryce and Toby for some memorable striper action this season

Napa River – Poor. Flows – average, Water temps - 60’s. Water clarity – Stained

We are thankful for all the rain we have been getting, but it is definitely having an effect on the fishing. There are opportunities for fishing in between the storms however it takes at least a week without heavy rain before things improve.

We had two reports of anglers catching a few fish last week. Nothing huge but it sure beats not fishing at all!

We are looking forward to good Spring and Summer fishing in the Napa Valley. Stay tuned for updated reports, or give us a call at (707)287-2939 for current information.

Putah Creek – Open Flows – 3,000 CFS. Temps - high 50’s. Water clarity – Green

Flows on Putah Creek are slowly dropping and are currently around 3,000 cfs. Recent rain caused a beautiful sight recently as heavy rains made history and water spilled into the glory hole on Feb 17 giving the creek a much needed flush. We are hoping that much of the heavy siltation caused by two summers of fires and the subsequent heavy runoff years will have been cleared out.

We are excited to see what all this water has done to the creek. There is still some rain to come but given the current rate at which the water is dropping it should be fishable by mid March. This will be just in time to celebrate all the water and greenery with some frosty green beverages!
Good spring fishing should be just around the corner, so Reserve your Spring Putah trip today! Call us at (707)287-2939 or at the shop at (916)722-1055.

Guide tip: “Wait until the water is below 1,000 cfs and be careful when wading. A wading staff and inflatable life jacket would be wise this time of year… oh and go fish Pyramid.”

Pyramid Lake Nevada - Great!!! Temps - high 50’s. Water clarity – 3 feet
