Pit trout hugging bottom

Pit River - CA (Modoc County)

by The Fly Shop

The rainbows here hold close to the bottom of the river, nestled amongst boulders, rocks. Sometimes you gotta nag these fish into eating, showing them the fly numerous times. Fishing has been good for anglers who can cover water, moving from run to run. High-stick and short-line techniques rule the day with dark colored nymphs in #16-#6. Use one to three 1.8 gram split shot to dredge the pocket water when fishing nymphs. Don't hesitate to throw beetle patterns, chernobyl ants. The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555
