Updated - 10/25/18

Current River Conditions: 82 CFS at Truckee and about 130 CFS below Hirschdale. Water is clear and in the high 50s.

Fishing is good: Not any change from last week. The cooler weather has got the BYOs going, particularly on cloudy days. Crawdad, Midges and worm patterns are getting fish too. October Caddis are beginning to move around so you might try swinging a Red Squirrel Nymph also try a black Rubber Legs with a Zebra Midge tied to the dropper.

Good nymphs patterns are , Caddis Pupa patterns. Try a #18 PT or Micro Mayfly on the dropper too. A hopper dropper rig such as a Fat Albert with a #18 beaded Pheasant Tail Soft hackle can get you fish particularly in the riffle water.​

LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVER

Updated - 10/17/18

Current River Conditions: Flows are 45 CFS.

Fishing remains fair: Lower flows are having a negative effect on the fishing. BYO & Midge patterns are what's working now. Steve at Mountain Hardware says that the river could use a rest as water is low and warm. He also mentioned that if you do go, please avoid Browns that are on spawning redds. ​

One option this time of year is to fish the LT inlet to Boca as Browns are staging before they move on up to the meadows to spawn.

We have guides who are on the Little Truckee every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 or we will set you up.​

WEST CARSON RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : 17.4 CFS and and clear.

Fishing is fair: CDFW stocked the river downstream from Sorensons last week. Water is very skinny and the fish are skittish so the best fishing is between the bridges and in the deeper pools in the canyon. Indicator (hopper-dropper rigs are best in such skinny water) or short line nymphing will get you the most fish in the pocket water. With cooler nights fishing is improving Try to avoid any fish, Browns & Brookies, sitting on redds. ​

We have guides who are on the Carson every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 or we will set you up.​

Generally Recommended Patterns

EAST CARSON RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : 68 CFS and river is clear. Water temps: mid 60s.

Fishing is very good: River is still fishing very well. Some big fish still around. River was planted last week and 1800 lbs of fish will be planted this week too. Fish weight between 4 to 10 lbs. This will be the last plant of the season. With low water, lots of fish and cool temperatures, fishing should be great.

Henan Lake (Lake closes on Sunday)

Opened October 1st and fishing is allowed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Fishing is very good: With some cool below freezing nights this last week, lake is begining to turn over. One of our staffers stopped by the lake a week ago Saturday and reports that he talked to several fishermen who were calling it quits for the day and the reports were mixed. Some fishermen had epic stories (& pictures) to tell and other's got skunked. There were enough great reports to rate Henan Lake as fishing very good for those who are experienced.

Successful fishermen reported that by slowly stripping small black leach patterns and or size #10 Prince nymphs just under the surface, seemed to get the fish. Our staffer reported seeing pictures of LCTs upwards of 24 inches.

The go to rig on the lake is dragging Small black Wooly Buggers (#10) with a small Prince nymph on the dropper. Take two rods with one rigged with a full sink line and the other with an intermediate sink tip so you can cover different depths.

Indian Creek Reservoir

The Alpine County Fish & Game Commission stocked the lake two weeks ago.​

We have guides who are on the Carson every day of the season. Give the shop a call

(916)483-1222 and we will set you up.​

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

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : Flow are at 30 CFS and the water is clear.

Fishing is fair to good: Reports have been mixed this week with some reporting having juch success and others getting skunked. That means that if you go, it's important to keep moving until you find the fish. The deeper runs are where you will find the fish. In this low water your best bet is either fishing a hopper-dropper with a small bead head Pheasant Tail, or swinging a Wooly Bugger in the deeper runs. CDFW stocked the Public Use Area between 395 and Picel Meadows this last week. ​

Generally Recommended Patterns

Dry Flies:

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

EAST WALKER RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : flows have dropped to 76 CFS​

​Fishing is fair to good: With these low flows the fish are holled up in deeper pools. Reports have been mixed. With colder weather fish though concentrated will grab your fly with a good presentation. You will have your best luck with midge, Caddis, Baetis and Crawdad imitations.

Rosaschii Ranch in Nevada is still fishing very good. Liz at the Angler's Edge in Gardnerville says that with most of the hatches over, now's the time to bring out the SJ Worms and Streamers. She does say that you can still have good success nymphing with Princes, Micro-Mayflies, and small Stonefly patterns.

Generally Recommended Patterns

Patterns to try: copper john, micro mayfly, micro stone, flashback emerger, san juan worm, zebra midge (black or red), WD 40s, mini leech, seal bugger, moal leech, white zuddler, Fox's Poopah, Z-wing Caddis.

Nevada fishing licenses can be purchased at Ken's Sporting Goods in Bridgeport, the General Store in Topaz (next to the casino) or at the Ace Hardware in Gardnerville. ​

Contact us if you would like to hook up with one of our guides who will show you how to fish the East Walker. The US Forest Service has given only three permits to guide on Rosaschi Ranch in Nevada, so it's a good idea to make sure your guide is legal before you fork over any fees. Our guides have permits.

UPPER OWENS RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : Flows are at 101 CFS and water is clear

Fishing is fair to good: The Troutfitter in Mammoth Lakes says that bigger fish are moving up from Crowley and are getting more numerous. One of our customers says that he fished the upper Owens last week and saw lots of smaller fish near the Benton Crossing bridge area. Keep moving until you find them and then try everything in your fly box as their food preferences are constantly changing. Streamers can be productive this time of the year.​

We have guides who are on the Owens every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 or  we will set you up.​

Recommended General All Around Patterns

Dries:

LOWER OWENS RIVER

 Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions  : Flows are at 386 CFS. ​

Fishing is poor to fair: Not much happening during these high flows. Flows should subside as we get into fall. ​

We have guides who fish the Lower Owens year round and the best way is from a drift boat, so if you would like to stick one of its legendary lunker Browns, give us a call at the shop and we will hook you up with a local guide.​

Generally Recomended Patterns

HOT CREEK

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : Flows 40 CFS. Water is clear but weeds are beginning to be a problem. This river needs a break.

Fishing remains fair: Creek in the gorge section is tough this time of the year due to weeds and low flows though with some freezing weather the weeds will go away and the fish will become more active. The Interpretive Center section is like fishing in an aquarium with lots of fish working on cripples. They are tough to catch but you can have success with #20 Baetis cripples in the film. Downstream presentations are a must as these fish are getting smart For dries, tiny cripple patterns #20 &#24 get more fish than duns. Down deep, try hare's ear or Bird's Nest size 16 or smaller. Hoppers are a thing of the past.

Save years of trial and error on this very technical creek by hiring one of our guides to show you the ropes. We have guides who are on the creek every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 we will set you up.​

CROWLEY LAKE

Updated - 10/24/18

Current Conditions: great shape and water is dropping. Water temperatures are in the low 60s

Fishing is good one day and poor the next: The Troutfitter reports that the fish are spreading out even more, now that the Perch fry are becoming more abundant. Midging has been productive as has stripping perch streamers. Though reports have been mixed we did have a customer report that he did real well at the Crooked Creek inlet. The most successful method is fishing a balance Minnow below a "Insta-Set" strike indicator. (Insta-Set Indicators create a 90 degree hinge in your leader that greatly increases your ability to detect strikes). If you access the inlet from the highway, be aware that the unimproved trail is very steep, slippery and treacherous. ​

Recommended Flies

Suspending midge patterns such as Optimidges, 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. A balance leach under an indicator can be deadly too. Try stripping a small Olive & White intruder style fly. How about trying a small Clouser?

We have guides who are on Crowley every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 and we will set you up.

PYRAMID LAKE

Updated - 10/22/18​

Water Conditions: high

Fishing Report-fair to poor: We're getting our first reports that fish are beginning to move in closer to shore at the drop off in about 20 ft of water. The reports were getting before were from fishermen that have been fishing deeper water in the vicinity of bait balls. Most fish are at the 40 ft level.

 UPPER SACRAMENTO RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : Flows are at 210 CFS at Delta which is perfect for this river. Water temperature is in the high 50s above Dunsmuir.

NO FISHING IS PERMITTED BETWEEN LAKEHEAD AND CASTLE CRAGS​

Fishing is fair to good: This is one of the best times of the year on the Upper Sac. Cooler water is getting the fish active. Typical patterns such as Dark Lords and Micro Mayflies will get fish. Caddis larva are always a successful pattern on the river. Not a bad idea to tie on an October Caddis

larva/pupa pattern such as a #10 Red Squirrel with a size #18 or Micro Mayfly attached to the dropper. ​

The upper Sac is one of the most beautiful rivers to fish in the autumn, so if you are planning an autumn trip, you can't go wrong spending a few days fishing this fabled river.​

Try a size #8 or #10 Vinci's Depth Charge Bird's Nest (natural) with a small Bead Head Pheasant Tail tied to the dropper should get you some fish. Small tan caddis larva patterns about size #10 are a good representation for juvenile October Caddis. #14 Pink parachutes are catching some fish on top in the evening. Also try a weighted green Caddis larva pattern.

If you are 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 learning the river when with a guide you can learn it all in a day. If you would like to book some time on the water. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 and we will set you up.​

McCLOUD RIVER

Updated
10/24/18

Current River Conditions: 230 cfs at Ah-d-na


Fishing is good: The river is good as its going to get this year. he river is in great shape right now October Caddis are hatching right now, so dead drift a Pupa pattern or swing a Red Squirrel Nymph. A Stimulater should attract some strikes in the evening. Cooler weather is making the fish more active. If you've never fished the McCloud, do it now before inclement weather sets in.

Try a #10 tan Caddis larva pattern to represent juvenile October Caddis larva at this point in their growth cycle. They should start coloring up so have some Orange larva patterns in your box too. Worm patterns are also working well. A small tan caddis larva pattern to represent the many Glosoma might be productive. Don't forget to have some Little Yellow Stone - both larva and dries in your fly box.

Book a guide trip for the up coming legendary October Caddis hatch. Word is that the river is full of October Caddis larva. Contact the shop and we can hook you up with one of our guides for a memorable trip. ​

PIT RIVER

Updated - 10/20/18

Current River Conditions: Flows are steady at 1837 CFS on Pit #3 and 470 CFS at Pit #5. We expect flows to be erratic through November. ​

Fishing is poor: Fishing was good until flows changed. Pit #3 is roaring but Pit #5 might be

fishable for the more though we don't recommend it . Click on the Water Flows link below for up to the minute info on flows before you go.

We had a credible report that two of our customers had an encounter with a mountain lion that stalked them for awhile, so if you go; be careful. They also caught lots of fish both down deep and on top at Pit 3. Golden Stones are hatching at Pit 5 so a big Stimulator or Stone Nymph fished in the pockets can catch some big fish.​

Updated - 10/25/18

Current Conditions: Lake level is high (95%) and water clarity is normal. Water temperature is cooling off. All boat ramps have been pulled for the winter so only smaller water craft can be launched from the shore. ​

Fishing is fair to good: Grizzly Store reports that most of the fish are over on the east side this year and recommends fishing between Lightning Tree and Mallard. They also recommend trolling a black wooly bugger from a float tube.​

We have guides who fish it all of the time, so give us a call and we will set you up.

SACRAMENTO/SAN JOAQUIN DELTA

Updated - 10/22/18

Current Conditions: Water temps 67-68 degrees.

Fishing is very good: This has been a good fall for the Delta. Guide Capt. Bryce Tedford says the fish are definitely there, however, but you have to move around to find them. Bigger fish will be there soon. ​

We also keep getting good reports that Stripers there to be found, particularly in the south delta. For fishing deep, Clousers are the ticket. Frog patterns and Crease Flies are getting takes.

LOWER SACRAMENTO RIVER

Updated - 10/24/18

Current River Conditions : Flows are 7500 CFS and stable at Keswick Dam. ​

Fishing is still excellent: The egg bite is on so look for spawning Salmon between Redding and Anderson and fish egg patterns downstream from the redds. Caddis are the main ticket in the late afternoons and evenings. Mid-day fish a pupa pattern such as a tan Mercer Z-Wing Caddis, Mercer Micro-Mayfly or a Fox's Poopah/cinnamon or tan. Don't pass up the shallow riffles. Blue Wing Olives and midges have been hatching in the mornings.

For Caddis (tan Fox's Poopah/tan or cinnamon & tan Bird's Nests are good calls for Caddis, and for Baetis (Mercer's Micro-Mayfly). Prince Nymphs have always done well too. ​

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. We have guides who are on the lower Sac every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (916)483-1222 nd we will set you up.​

Updated - 10/24/18

Fishing is fair but improving: Not much change though we have reports of more Half-Pounders moving into the system. Remember that the River Bend Park boat ramp is still closed.

Caddis patterns and small mayfly patterns should be the ticket. Try swinging a Depth Charge Bird's Nest (either natural or olive) through the seams of fast water. It's time to start adding an egg pattern to your rig.

PUTAH CREEK

Updated - 10/25/18

Current River Conditions : 162 CFS. Flows are being ramped down (were almost 300 cfs yesterday) to 45 CFS by tomorrow morning so some maintenance can be completed at the dam. Flows should be low for several days, so keep checking our real time flows link (Stream Flows) below. ​

Fishing Report-very good: Fishing has been very good up until today, when the dropping flows definitely got the fish off bite. Once the flows become normal again, fishing will improve. Last week one of our staffers did very well dead drifting a #20 red Copper John. Said fish were very healthy.

It seems that the them this year has been that larger fish have been caught.
