Had the opporutunity to guide the Lower Sac again. Today I floated from Posse Grounds to Anderson River Park. The morning started out chilly and cloudy, but by mid day the sun was out. The fishing was pretty consistent all day long, even though the bug activity was limited. Throughout the day I saw a handful baetis and march brown mayflies, and limited caddis action. We hooked a total of 31 rainbows. The best flies were 10M beads, 16 bh pheasant tails, and size 14 amber wing princes. Check out my webpage if you want to book a trip for the caddis hatches of March and April.

Had the opportunity to guide Lance and Rose from Redondo Beach (LA COUNTY)on the Lower Sac. Once again I floated from Bonnyview to Anderson River Park. The river changed drastically in two days. The temperature had dropped 20 degrees from Saturday, and there was absolutely no bug activity. It was cold and the wind was blowing all day. Lucky for me it was only a half day guided trip. With the lack of the bug activity, the fish were once again eating 10M beads, but we also picked up quite a few on size 18 copper johns. In total we hooked 24 rainbows in about 5 hours. Check out my webpage for additional information and bookings for the spring caddis hatch.

Today I had the opportunity to row my beautiful wife and our good friends Mike and Carrie from OFF THE HOOK DESTINATION TRAVEL. We once again put in at Bonnyview and floated down to Anderson River Park. The fishing and weather was drastically different than last week. It was 75 degrees on the water. I cant believe it is February! The caddis liked the warmer weather and they were coming off all day long. The most productive flies today proved to be a size 14 amber wing prince and a 18 copper john. Compared to last week it seemed as thougth the fish are truely keyed on bugs again. Get ready for the big caddis hatches in March and April. Check out my website at the bottom of the page for additional information.

Today I guided the Lower Sac with Steve G. from Napa. We had an incredible day floating from Bonnyview down to Anderson River Park. The weather was pretty nasty with rain all day long, but there was a nice baetis hatch that came off around 1:00PM. Even with all of the mayflies flying around they still wanted to eat eggs. We boated 40+ fish and lost numerous others. The main patterns that proved to be successful were 10M beads and size 16 BH pheasant tails.
