 FISHING REPORT

Updated - 10/4/17 - 10/6/17

EASTERN SIERRA

TRUCKEE RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows have dropped a little more and are now at 63 CFS at Truckee and fish are concentrated in deeper runs, tributary inlets and springs. The river is flowing at over 500 CFS below Boca. 

Nights have cooled off and the fish are active.  Word is that many fish have moved downstream into deeper cooler and more oxygenated water . . . as far down as Reno.   One report we received today, was that the river was "on fire" below Herschdale with large fish taking black Stonefly nymphs and Stimulators on top.   We've also had a good report that fishing was good downstream from the Glennshire access.  

Don't neglect Crawdads which the bigger fish devour.  Dead drift your favorite Crawdad pattern through the usual holding lies for some serious hookups.  Now is the time to creep an October Caddis pattern along the bottom as they are beginning to make their move.  With cooler weather, it might be a good idea to be prepared for Baetis hatches on cloudy days. ​

Recommended Patterns

Dries:

Parachute/tan or pale yellow #16 & #18,  Stimulator/#10 & #12,

Humpy/yellow #14 & #16, Adams Parachute #14, Crazy Charlie #10, Royal Wulff #14, Renegade #14. ​

Nymphs:

Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Mercer's Epoxy Stone #12 & #14 Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red. Near Nuff Crayfish #8, Mercer's Micro Mayfly #18,  Black Rubber Legs.

Crawdads: Our guides recommend the Near Nuff Crayfish #8 or Creek Crawler #8.  

 

LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows have risen to around 165 CFS though the river is still at a very fishable flow.  

Fishing  is good we've received a few reports that the fishing is good.  Some big fish are coming into the  river in anticipation of the spawn.  

This is a good river to fish with a guide your first time out so give us a call at the shop and we will hook you up . . . no pun intended.   

Recomended Patterns

Dries:

Parachute PMD pale yellow #16 & #18, Stimulator/Yellow #10 & #12, Fat Albert/tan #8, Humpy/yellow #14 & #16, Parachute Blue Wing Olive #18. Adams Parachute #14 & #16. 

Nymphs:

Pheasant Tail #12, #14 #16 & #18, San Juan Worm/pink, Mercer's Epoxy Stone #12 & #14, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Mercer's Micro Mayfly #18.

A crawdad pattern might get you a big one.

 

WEST CARSON RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows are running at 37 CFS which is perfect for this beautiful water.

Fishing is good. It's regularly planted and  There are also a bunch  of small LCTs that  were planted by the CDFW this summer.  Fishing the freestone section in the canyon is the best bet at this time.  It will be planted again next week.   If you would rather fish the meadow, get away from the wormers and you will find some fish.  

Right now, small bright patterns like a red Copper John, or any beaded flashback pattern #16 or smaller,  will do best in the clear water.  Best fishing is from late morning on.

Recommended Patterns

Dry Flies:

Parachute Adams #14 & #16, Yellow Humpy #16, Elk Hair Caddis #14, Royal Wulff #16, Parachute Ant #14, Dave's Hopper #10, Fat Albert #10.

Nymphs:Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/pink, Golden Stone Nymph #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red, Squirmy Wormy/red, pink and brown, Liz's Tequila Twist.

 

EAST CARSON RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows have dropped slightly down to 145 CFS which is a great flow for this river.  Check weather reports before going as summer thunderstorms can blow this river out quickly. 
Fishing is red  hot. The river should fish great this weekend as Alpine County is planting 900 lbs of fish on Friday.  We fished it last Saturday and did very well on Rainbows 12" and larger  Many of the most recently planted fish are in the 2 lb  range.  A #8 Stimulator or foam hopper pattern with a red Copper John below will be deadly on these fish.  Fish have been planted in several spots along Hwy 89 and Hwy 4. 

Recommended Patterns

Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Liz's Tequila Twist, Golden Stone Nymph #8,, #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red.  If you see a pod of planters, try dragging a rusty Wooly Bugger with a size #18, Copper John/red tied on as a dropper through the school.

 

WEST WALKER RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows are at a very fishable 97 CFS. 

Fishing  is still very good.  Planted fish have been spread out at several locations on the river. Local guide reports that her clients did very well dead drifting Prince Nymphs under an indicator in the canyon section.  Try stripping streamers along the rip-rap or swinging through the fast water to the seams.  Try crossing the river to the east bank and you will be surprised at how much better you do.  No word about fishing at Picel Meadows.  

Recommended Patterns

Dry Flies:

Parachute Adams #14 & #16, Yellow Humpy #16, Elk Hair Caddis #14, Royal Wulff #16, Parachute Ant #14.

Nymphs:

Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Golden Stone Nymph #8,, #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, olive or black, Glow Bug/red, Fat Albert/tan #8

 

EAST WALKER RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows have dropped down to  183 CFS and conditions are good.  

Fishing is good to great.  Unusually cool water and great flows for this time of year is making fall of 2017 a great time to fish the eastern Sierra.  

A fair number of fish are going over 20" are being caught both on the CA side and the NV side. Good reports from Sceriene Ranch in NV too.  If the CA side is too crowded head downstream a few miles to the Rosaschi Ranch in NV for some solitude and some great fishing.  Reports are that Rainbows are predominantly found on the Nevada side with most Browns on the CA side.  

We've received reports that the Browns are beginning to pair up on redds, so be careful to not disturb them.   

Stripping an articulated leach or wooly bugger along the edges of the undercuts can produce some of the bigger fish.  With cooler weather, baetis nymphs (blue wing olive) and midges are the predominant bugs.  Try Micro Mayflies, Dark Lords and Princes.   Try a red Squirmy Wormy, or Liz's Tequila Twist as a part of any two fly rig.  They look like aquatic worms but also remind the fish of blood midges that are prolific in the lake above.   

Recommended General All Around Patterns 

Dry Flies:

Parachute Adams #14 & #16, Yellow Humpy #16, Elk Hair Caddis #14, Royal Wulff #16, Parachute Ant #14.

Nymphs (recommend all bead head):

UPPER OWENS RIVER


Current River Conditions: Flows are down to  68 CFS which is very fishable.   


Fishing is only fair.  Not much has changed.  Water upstream from the Hot Creek confluence is cooler and will provide a better chance to catch fish.  With cooler water, fishing might be better downstream from the Hot Creek confluence. Most fish are small though their are some nice size planters recently dumped into the areas around the campgrounds.  The big ones should be entering the river soon.

Recomended Patterns

Dries:

Adams Parachute #14-#16, Elk Hair Caddis #14-#16, EC Caddis #16-#18, Dave's Hopper #10, Fat Albert #10

Nymphs:

HOT CREEK


Current River Conditions: Flows 60 CFS.   

Fishing remains fair to good.  Not much has changed.  Mini Caddis are what's happening right now.  #18 Tent Caddis patterns work better than Elk Hair.  With freezing nights Caddis will be over soon.  Baetis and midge patterns are where the action is.

No word yet on the results of the electro-shocking last week  but keep checking back and we will let you know as soon as we get a report.

When you first approach the river, fish the edge closest to you and you be surprised that their might be a trout at your feet.  In the meanwhile, have a look at our hatch chart so you can be ready with the right flies once the creek gets into shape.  

Remember, we have all the transitional fly patterns that you need for fishing Hot Creek such  plus fly tying materials to tie them, if you tie your own.

 

Save years of trial and error by hiring one of our guides to show you the ropes.  Email Gary at the shop and he will  set you up.

CROWLEY LAKE


Current Conditions:  Water is clear   


Fishing is fair and remains about the same as last week.  Many of the fish have moved into the north arm and are staging for the fall spawn. Midges suspended under an indicator are your best bet, but for those who like to think outside of the box, a Balance Leach below an indicator might be worth a try.      

Recommended Flies

Suspending midge patterns such as Zebra Midges/black or olive #14-#18 under an indicator or stripping leaches such as the Hale Bopp/black or brown, and Matukas  #10 are getting fish.    

 

PYRAMID LAKE

Water Conditions: Good but with some algae. 
Fishing is fair.  Fish were caught on the opener with the float tuber and boat guys doing better than the bank guys.   
LATEST WORD . . .
  1. Howard's and Dago will be CLOSED, due to Cultural issues.2. 
  2. Road and beaches from 9 Mile to NORTH is CLOSED.
  3. Beaches that are open on the 1st, from South of 9 Mile to South(ish) of Dago.

This ALL can change, depending on the repair of the road near 9 Mile.. though not likely anytime soon, due to it still have a crevasse of 16' in it, and the tribe is responsible for repairs...

WEST SLOPE NORTHERN SIERRA

UPPER SACRAMENTO RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows remain at 250 CFS at Delta and water is clear.   

Fishing is good.  River is in good shape and is in its fall mode.  With cooler air temperatures fishing has improved a lot.  Fishermen have been doing well in town and there are reliable reports of some larger fish showing at the lower end of the river near Delta. River is loaded with October Caddis so fishing should be great in a couple of weeks. The section upstream from Dunsmuir and down to Sims is fishing the best.     

River has cooled enough so that fishing will be best late morning through mid day.  Black Rubber Legs #8 are the hot fly right now. Small dark nymphs under an indicator will get grabs.  Creeping an October Caddis nymph along the bottom might get a few pick-ups.   Not a lot of bugs this year, probably due to the scouring by floods last winter.  

Bugs consist mainly of Mayflies and Caddis.  PMD larva imitations (bead head Pheasant Tails #14 & #16 will do) and or soft hackles rigged along with a heavy Bead Head Golden Stone imitation #8, should work well in the seams and edges.  A black or rusty Wooly Bugger will work stripping in the seams.  Don't neglect midge patterns a fish are always eating midges no matter what the season.

If you new to the Upper Sac the best way to learn it is to spend a day with one of our guides.  It's an easy river to learn but why spend several trips getting acquainted when with a guide you can learn it all in a day.  Give us a call if you would like to book some time on the water.

McCLOUD RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows are around 247 CFS at Ah d Na and water is pretty clear.  

River is fishing is very good and not much has changed from last week.  A few large fish are making their way upstream from Lake Shasta so stripping streamers can be productive.  October Caddis are getting ready to hatch and are moving around on the rocks, so creeping pupae along the rock bottom might pick up a few fish. Lots of October Caddis are on the rocks so in a couple of weeks . . . look out! 

Major hatches are over. Several anglers have had good luck on #8 black Rubber Legs.  Dark Lords and Princes work well too. 

Book a guide trip with one of our guides for the legendary October Caddis hatch.  Contact the shop and we can hook you up with one of our guides for a memorable trip.

HAT CREEK

Current River Conditions: downstream from  Power House #2: Flows are are about 180 CFS with good clarity.  Remember to  use a wading staff to cross the riffle.  

Fishing is very good.  Not that crowded right now, particularly during the week.

Try a hopper dropper with a red #18 Copper John or other small mayfly pattern in the riffles. A Mercer's Micro Mayfly can be deadly.

FALL RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows are normal and water is very clear.  

Fishing remains fair which is normal for this time of the year.  Occasional hatches of PMDs, Tricos and Baetis (blue wing olive) provide some dry fly action.  Most fish are caught by Swinging streamers, and Bird Nests.  Olive leach patterns such as the Hale Bop, often catch the biggest fish.  Also try swinging a size #18 soft hackle into areas you see fish rising.   

When dry fly fishing, try twitching the fly at the end of the drift which turns the fly into a cripple and sometimes will draw a strike. Don't bother with dry flies unless you see rising fish. 

The Fall River is only accessible by watercraft and  requires that you use some specialized techniques, so we recommend that you fish it with a guide the first time out.  Call the shop and we will hook you up with one of our guides.

Recommended Patterns

Dries:

Parachute PMD/yellow #16 & #18, Humpy/yellow #16 & #18, Elk Hair Caddis #16, #18.  Quigley Cripple/gray #18, Baetis (Blue Wing Olive) Parachute #18

PIT RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows are down to 311 CFS on Pit #3 and around 400 below Pit #4. Pit #5 is running over 1000 CFS and is unfishable.

River is still Fishing Very Well at Pit #3 and we've had a reliable report that  Pit #4 is fishing well though water is high and over 400 CFS. With fluctuating flows-be careful.  The quality of the fishing can change daily depending on flows.  Pit #5 is still running over 1500 CFS.  Bugs are primarily Caddis, PMDs and Baetis.  The Pit is a dangerous river to wade so wear a personal flotation device. 

Swinging Wooly Buggers through soft water and eddies will produce some large fish.  Indicator nymphing with bead head Pheasant Tails and Caddis Larva or pupa, with lots of weight can be productive. Brown Rubber Legs makes a good anchor fly on the Pit in roily pockets.  Fish early and late. Use lots of weight.

Recomended Patterns

Bead Head Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Bead Head Golden Stone Nymph #8,, #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Bead Head Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red, Brown or Black Rubber Legs #6 or #8,

VALLEY TAIL WATERS

LOWER SACRAMENTO RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows have lowered to 9,000 CFS at bend bridge which is perfect for floating the Lower Sac.  

Fishing is fair Only a few Salmon have made it up to the Anderson/Redding area so the egg bite is delayed for the time being.  Caddis and Baetis (Blue Wing Olive) nymphs have been the ticket. Fish the riffles and drop offs with a combination Caddis Pupae and midge or baetis.   Not a lot of Salmon yet, so the egg bite is still a little ways off. 

It's important to get your fly down to the bottom so use enough weight.  Try swinging size #14 soft hackles or tan Birdsnests in the riffles.  Stonefly nymphs both Golden or Rubberlegs make a good anchor fly in a two fly nymph rig.  Tie in a size #16 beadhead/flashback PT or Birdsnest below.

The Lower Sac is best fished with a guide who knows all of the holding lies and is networked with all of the other guides on the river.  Call us at Kiene's and we will hook you up with one of our expert guides that can assure a productive day on the river.

Recomended Patterns

Nymphs:

Bead Head Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Mercer's Epoxy Stone #10, & #12, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Bead Head Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red.  tungston bead Zebra Midge/black, brown, red, Fox's Poopah #14 & #16.

FEATHER RIVER LOW FLOW

Current River Conditions: Flows are at 900 CFS in the low flow section.   

Fishing remains fair to good.  Reports are coming in that smaller Steelhead and a few adults have moved into the system.  Fish are in the riffles and deep runs.  Most fish are caught by swinging olive Bird's Nests and Prince Nymphs.  Baetis nymphs and small (#18 & smaller) PTs under an indicator will catch fish. Salmon are moving into the system so the egg bite should be getting started soon.  

Try swinging an olive Bird's Nest #14, bead head Prince #12, Silver Hilton #10 or even a Glow Bug. Salmon should be in the system real soon, and the egg bite will be on. 

 

LOWER YUBA RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows remain at 1,120 CFS. River has changed dramatically due to winter flooding, though the river looks great.  Boat launching is still possible at the bridge but make sure you have a high center 4x4.  

Fishing is fair to Poor, with your best chances from a boat. Not a lot of bugs this year due to the scouring of winter flows but fish are definitely on to hoppers right now.   What fish are being caught are skinny and somewhat small.  Not a lot of Salmon yet.  Fish are on the move so if you are not having any luck on one section, then move on.   The river is best fished from a driftboat.

Our shop guide Andy Guibrod reports that he did well from his boat on Stripers just below Daguerre Dam this past week.  He caught a couple of nice Rainbows too.

Try swinging an olive Bird's Nest #14 on a sink tip into the seams close to shore. Salmon should be trickling in soon.  Shortly, the fish will be on an egg bite once the Salmon get down to business.

Remember that the river upstream from Hwy 20 bridge is now closed to protect spawning Salmon until December 1st.

Recomended Patterns

Nymphs:

Bead Head Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Copper John/red or copper #14, #16, Bead Head Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red.  tungsten bead Zebra Midge/black, brown, red, Fox's Poopah #14 & #16. Scud/pink #14.

LOWER AMERICAN RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows are are still holding steady at around 3500 CFS

Fishing remains fair which is typical for this time of the year. 

Half Pounders are increasing in numbers and remain scattered from Nimbus to Paradise Beach.  Received a good report from the Gristmill access.  We had a report that there were a fair number of half-pounders hanging with the Salmon just downstream from the Sunrise walk bridge.  As Salmon begin to sit on redds, Steelhead will hold downstream. 

Our shop guide, Andy Guibord, recommends that for Half Pounders, swinging streamers such as Silver Hiltons or olive Bird's Nests will elicit strikes. 

Our guides at the shop are on the AR every day, so stop by and pick their brains or maybe let them take you out and get you into some fish.

Recomended Flies

Half Pounders: Andy at the shop recommends swinging, Wooly Buggers, Fox's Poopa/olive, Bird's Nest/olive, Slump Busters #10, Zonkers #10, Silver Hilton. 

 

LOWER MOKELUMNE RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows have dropped back down to 493 CFS which makes the section upstream from the park to the hatchery very wadeable again. 

Fishing is Good.  We haven't had any reports from the wade section but one of our guides who floats the lower section has been doing very well on fish from 12" to 20".  Caddis and Mayfly dries should work fine.  Try an olive Bird's Nest with a #16 Copper John attached to the dropper.   Stripping a traditional Steelhead fly such as a Silver Hilton might get you a larger fish.  If you want to really think outside the box, how about trying a small Clouser Minnow??

 

PUTAH CREEK

Current River Conditions: Flows are beginning to drop and are now at 236 CFS with a green tint.

Fishing is poor. With lower flows, things should improve.  If you are careful, you can fish the edges of the creek with midge larval patterns suspended under an indicator and get some nice fish.  With cooler weather, this might be a nice time to give it a try.  

Recomended Patterns

Nymphs:

Bead Head Pheasant Tail #12, #14 & #16, #18 & #20 San Juan Worm/passionate pink, Copper John/red or copper #16 & #18, Bead Head Prince Nymph (various sizes), Wooly Bugger/rusty, black, Glow Bug/red.  tungsten bead Zebra Midge/black, brown, red #18-#20, WD 40 #18 & #20, Fox's Poopah #14 & #16. Scud/pink #14.

Dries:

Adams Parachute #14 & #16, Elk Hair Caddis #14 & #16, Comparadun #18, 

 

NORTH COAST

TRINITY RIVER

Current River Conditions: Flows are running at around 400 CFS at Lewiston . 

Fishing is good.  Things are finally starting to happen on the Trinity and the water around Lewiston is fishing well for half-pounders and a few adults.  Now is the time to go . . .

For a guide, give the shop a call and we will set you up.

 

KLAMATH RIVER

Current River Conditions: The river is running at about 2120 CFS at Orleans, about 950 CFS at Irongate Dam.  ​

Fishing is good and improving.  Not much in the way of reports this week but the Orleans area should still be producing some fish.    With the Salmon in the system the Steelhead should be on to egg patterns soon. 

Keep checking our river flows link below for up to date water temperatures and flows.  Swinging with a Silver Hilton in the riffles is catching fish.
