Fish early, upstream on Upper Sac

Sacramento River - Upper - Siskiyou, CA (Siskiyou County)

by The Fly Shop

Look for the best fishing in the early mornings, before 10:00 AM. Ignore the lower river below Pollard Flat and seek the cooler waters as far up as Ney Springs. Some good reports of solid caddis hatches near sunset and rising rainbows. Rubber Legs in #6-8 can work. Don't doubt Stimulators suspending a Black Zebra Midge or a #18 Red Copper John (The Red Copper John worked well the other night). If you throw nothing but #16-18 dark colored nymphs, you should get tight to a few fish found in the bubbly pocket waters. Ted Fay Fly Shop (530) 235-2969; The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555
