The Pit Is Fishing Good, Despite Warmer Temps

Pit River - CA (Modoc County)

by The Fly Shop

Report: There have been quite a few bigger fish being caught. Up top on Pit 3 is the place to go. The evening caddis hatch is full force and PMDs and Baetis mayflies are coming off. Look for some good hatches to happen on cloudy days, and focus your fishing around the faster water. Fishing bigger streamers can also be very effective in the faster water. 

Here are some useful links to monitor the flows:

Pit 3 - Below Pit 3 Dam
Pit 5 - Through Big Bend
