San Joaquin River Fishing Report

San Joaquin River - Stockton, CA

Water levels low, with most riffles too shallow to fish. I like to fish hi-vis mayfly; or caddis patterns with a bead head dropper nymph like an Assassin, FB PT, or tiger midge. The deeper riffles are best fished with high riding dries like stimulators, parachute ant patterns, foam beetles, & attractor adults. I suggest you have a stout wading staff even though the flows are down. You can drive in without the shuttle until the snow falls enough to close the NFS gate.

This fishery opens last Saturday in April & closes November 15th. Access is prone to weather/road closures, & may not allow entry during open periods of the season.
