Float Baum for best bite

Baum Lake - Cassel, CA (Shasta County)

by The Fly Shop

This is a great place to fish if you have a float tube, pontoon boat, pram or even a drift-boat. This spot offers good fishing almost daily! Best chances at catching rainbows on dry flies is in the mornings, before the sun is high. The sporadic surface action dies off after 10:00 AM. And that's "IF" there's any top water action. You can always suspend midge patterns like Zebra Midges, WD-40s and Gidgets. Think small flies (nymphs) in size 18-22. Anglers are doing best on dark #18-20 midge patterns, #18 red Copper Johns suspended under small indicators. Leeches in black, retrieved slowly or woolly buggers stripped fast will get hit.
