 EASTERN SIERRA

TRUCKEE RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows remain at 63 CFS at Truckee. The river is flowing at over 500 CFS below Boca. 

Fishing is good.  Nights have cooled off and the fish are active. Black Stonefly nymphs (Rubber Legs) and Stimulators on top.   We've also had a good report that fishing was good upstream from the Glennshire access.  The better water is below Boca.   

Don't neglect Crawdads which the bigger fish devour.  Dead drift your favorite Crawdad pattern through the usual deep 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 otherwise drifting a Baetis nymph imitation under an indicator is always a good bet.  The biggest fish are caught on streamers.

Recommended Patterns
Dries:

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

Humpy/yellow #14 & #16, Adams Parachute #14, Royal Wulff #14, Renegade #14.

LITTLE TRUCKEE RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows have dropped to around 123 CFS though the river is still at a very fishable flow.  

Fishing  remains very very good.  Some big fish are coming into the  river in anticipation of the spawn.  Lots of fishermen too.  Try not to disturb fish on redds.  Still some hatches going on, mostly aren't quite happening yet.  Try dead drifting Micro Mayflies (good Baetis pattern) and size #16 Pheasant Tails.  

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

WEST CARSON RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows remain at 33 CFS which is perfect for this beautiful water.


Fishing is great and is as good as it's going to get!   The freestone section in the canyon was planted with 600 lbs of fish last week and is fishing well and another 400 lbs will be planted again this week.  A large percentage of the fish are over 14" with some as large as 7lbs!  Fish were generally planted at the bridges, of the side roads.   We saw some behemoth fish in the deep pools but couldn't get them to grab.  Right now beaded flashback pattern #16 or smaller particularly if it has some red,  will get you the most fish.   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.

EAST CARSON RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows remain 123 CFS which is a great flow for this river. 


Fishing is as good as it's going to get! Todd Sodaro of Alpine County Fish & Game Commission told me that they are going to plant another 1,000 lbs of fish in the river this week. Many of the fish will be in the 4 lbs range! The  hot fly is anything size #16 and smaller that is bright red.  Fish will be planted in several spots along Hwy 89 and Hwy 4. Best fishing is from late morning on. 

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

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows are running at 88 CFS. 

Fishing  is still very good.  Not much has changed.  If you fish it, keep moving until you find the fish and then look out.  The deeper runs will be the most productive.  Had good reports from the Picel Meadows where fish were hitting on #14 Stimulators.  Give the Little Walker a try while you are there and you might have a pleasant surprise in one of the Sierra's most picturesque desert streams.  

Best fishing is in the canyon downstream from the Little Walker to the town of Walker.  Eastern Sierra guide Liz Weirauch 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, though word is that it has received very little pressure this summer.  

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

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows are at  134 CFS and the water remains slightly off color.  

Fishing continues to be very good to excellent.  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 Rosaschi Ranch on 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.   

Nevada fishing licenses are available at Ken's Sporting Goods in Bridgeport.   Lots of good size Browns are now in the Rosaschi section. 

E Walker guide Liz Weirauch reports that Prince nymphs working well for her clients and that passionate pink San Juan Worms and Boob Flies worked well too.  Try black Rubber Legs and large streamers in the off color water.

The bigger Browns are going to be caught by stripping a large articulated leach or wooly bugger along the edges of the undercuts.  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.  

* The US Forest Service has only given out 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.   

Recommended General All Around Patterns 

Dry Flies:

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

UPPER OWENS RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


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


Fishing is improving and rated as good.  Most of the action is on planters.  If you are lucky you might pick up one of the spawning Browns that have come up from Crowley Lake.  Most of the action will be by fishing nymphs.   A nymph under a hopper is the best technique in the low water.  One of the flies in your rig should be a midge pattern as the larger bugs are getting scarce.

HOT CREEK

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows 61 CFS.   

Fishing remains good.  Not much has changed.  Good Caddis hatches in the afternoon but the fish are not looking up. A hopper dropper with a midge or size #18 Caddis pupa underneath or perhaps a #20 midge instead.  With freezing nights Caddis will be over soon.  Baetis and midge patterns are where the action is.  With the crowds gone now is one of the best times of the year. 

Reports are trickling in that many of the small trout planted last year have disappeared.  They possibly got washed away in the record high water, if that's true then you can expect some improved fishing in Crowley next year.   Of the planter fish that remain, they didn't seem to have grown much since they were planted. They did find a few large Browns in the survey.  Another planting is planned for this next week.      

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

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current Conditions:  Water is clear  and in the 50s


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. Otherwise they are pretty well spread out. 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.  If indicator fishing doesn't work try stripping a small leach or baitfish pattern.    

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.    

 WEST SLOPE NORTHERN SIERRA

UPPER SACRAMENTO RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17

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

Fishing is fair to good. River is in good shape and is in its fall mode.  Numbers of fish caught per fishermen has improved a lot  Fishermen have been doing well in town fishing for planters and there are reliable reports of some larger fish showing at the lower end of the river near Delta. A few anglers are regularly catching a few large Browns between Delta and Lemoine.  Smaller Caddis are still hatching and are being supplemented by the October Caddis that have finally made a showing.      

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 as it bears some resemblance cased October Caddis.  Small dark nymphs under an indicator will get grabs too.  Try a size #8 Stimulator in the slicks.   

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.  Give us a call if you would like to book some time on the water.

McCOULD RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated
10/25/17


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

River is fishing fair and not much is really going on.  A few large fish are being caught by those who know how to fish the river.  Most fish that were caught this past week were on the small side.  October Caddis are hatching but the fish aren't on to them yet.

HAT CREEK

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: downstream from  Power House #2: Flows are are about 150 CFS with good clarity.  Remember to  use a wading staff to cross the riffle.  

Fishing is good.  Not that crowded right now, particularly during the week.  Major hatches are mostly over so Baetis and midges are the ticket now. Try a hopper dropper with a #18 Baetis nymph or a midge pattern in the riffles. A Mercer's Micro Mayfly can be deadly.

FALL RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


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

Fishing remains fair and things are begining to slow down.  Not much in the way of bugs hatching.  Fish are moving upstream right now so the water upstream from Spinner Fall Lodge might be your best bet.  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 should 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.

PIT RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows are at 330 CFS on Pit #3 and around 400 below Pit #4. Pit #5 is running 3,500 CFS and is unfishable.

River is Fishing Great 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.  Bugs are primarily Caddis, PMDs and Baetis.  Indicator nymphing the deep runs and pockets with tan Caddis pupa patterns and rubber leg dark Stonefly nymphs should get you grabs or any attractor nymph pattern for that matter.  Good presentation is the key.  The Pit is a dangerous river to wade so wear a personal flotation device.

Recomended Patterns

LAKE ALMANOR

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17

Current Conditions:  Water is clear and about 58 degrees.  

Fishing is still slow.  Not much has changed this week  and water remains a little on the warm side, but with cold nights things should turn on. It's just that things are late this year.  Hamilton Branch never really got going due to high off color water this year.  The Feather River north of town is fishing very well as the fish are on to the October Caddis hatch.  Fishing for planters is good, near the dam.

VALLEY TAIL WATERS

FEATHER RIVER LOW FLOW

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


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

Fishing has improved markedly and deserves a good+ rating.  More half-pounders and adult fish 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

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


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 hasn't changed from and remains Poor, with your best chances from a boat. Not a lot of bugs this year due to the scouring of winter flows but what fish that remain are definitely on to hoppers right now.  Most of the fish are small so as the bugs return, they hopefully will get fat and happy.   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 Guibord 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.

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

LOWER AMERICAN RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows have finally dropped to around 2,200 CFS

Fishing remains fair but is improving slightly. Our in house American River guide Andy Guibord says that half Pounders are increasing in numbers and remain scattered from Nimbus to Paradise Beach though you have to work for them.  Andy says that there are also a few Stripers remaining in the system. Received a good report that one of our customers caught two nice 5 lb adults below Sailor Bar area.  We had a report that there were a fair number of half-pounders hanging with the Salmon. As Salmon begin to sit on redds, Steelhead will hold downstream.   We also received an unconfirmed report that several Brown Trout were caught in the Sailor Bar area.  Go figure . . . 

Andy, recommends that for Half Pounders, swinging streamers such as Silver Hiltons or olive Bird's Nests will elicit strikes. We had a look at the fish ladder at the Nimbus Hatchery, and noticed a few Steelhead in the holding pool.  Only a few Salmon were observed, and they may possibly be stray Sacramento River fish. 

Salmon fishing is improving in the upper river.  Because of shoulder to shoulder crowds you will need to stay away from the narrow sections of the river and swing through tail outs with bright streamers.  

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. 

PUTAH CREEK

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows continue to drop and are now at 206 CFS with a green tint.

Fishing has improved a little and with lower flows, things should improve.  Best tactic is to nymph with a combination #18 Pheasant Tail and a #20 Zebra Midge (try different colors).  With cooler weather, the creek should improve in the next few weeks.  

General Fly Recomendations

NORTH COAST

TRINITY RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows are running at around 300 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.  More than normal wild adult fish are in the system this season. There are some  fish holding between Junction City and Douglas City and also between North Fork and Willow Creek.  As there are Salmon in the system, Steelhead are beginning to hit on egg patterns, otherwise Stone Nymphs, big Prince Nymphs and Birds Nests will get fish. 

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

KLAMATH RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17

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

Fishing is good and improving.  We are hearing that fishing has improved in the  Happy Camp where the fish are congregating right now.  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.  

RUSSIAN RIVER

FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/25/17


Current River Conditions: Flows are little above 150 CFS with a green tint.

Fishing is poor which doesn't really matter since the river is closed to protect spawning Salmon.  Nothing has changed since our last report.  River is in the doldrums and will stay that way until we get some rain.  For those who get on the water early before the swimmers and inter tubers, there is some good Smallmouth fishing to be had.
