Fall is right around the corner and despite drought conditions there are plenty of fly fishing options here in Northern California. Dates are booking up quickly so give us a call today to reserve your trip(707)287-2939.

Putah Creek - Fair to good. Flows - low and clear. Temps high 50’s to low 60’s, 400cfs. Best fishing has been first thing in the morning and again in the evening. Sporadic hatches of Blue Wing Olive caddis and some midges are the main items. Indicator nymphing with a two fly rig has been producing some a few nice fish. We’re still seeing quite a few smaller fish (6 to 10 inch range) being caught which is indicative of recent spawn success. Blue Wing olives have been hatching in the afternoon so fish BWO nymphs under a caddis or other attractor. Remember to go small and light with point fly with a Blue Wing Olive or midge down to 6x tippet. Fishing should only improve as water levels drop and fish begin staging for the spawn.

Guide Tip : Try using a San Juan Worm with a small Baetis dropper in deeper slots. Some nice fish landed last week on SJW’s. Also hesitate to throw on an egg pattern soon as fish will begin keying on them.

Yuba River dry fly fishing

Here are a few photos from a recent Off the Hook trip on the Yuba River on Feb. 12. Fishing has been consistently good recently and with mild winter weather we have had some amazing days!

Better to be lucky than good!

Fly fishing the Yuba River December 10, 2011

Last weekend I had the pleasure of guiding Rusty and his girlfriend Deserae on the Yuba River. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. You have to love California weather. To be fly fishing with dries in December is a pretty great thing!
