Lower Sac gets SILLY Good


Get Excited! This warm week of February has started our spring fishing. Yesterday I was fishing in shorts. Gotta love California. This means that in the next month things are going to be getting silly on the Lower Sac. If you want to fish the caddis hatch on the Sac then plan on it happening for the fourth year in row during the month of March. I know that there will be more cold weather to come but once those caddis start moving every warm day from here on out is going to be banner.

The last three days on the Lower Sac have been really good. Each of those days we boated 30+ rainbows and lost many others. The reason that the fish have gotten so grabby is due to the spring caddis hatch that is coming off in the middle of the day. The hatch actually doesn't start until about 1PM, but it seems that those fish really start to turn on about 10AM. The fishing is really consistent during the hours of 10AM-3PM. Yesterday for instance we boated 19 rainbows by lunch and 18 rainbows after lunch. The hot bugs have been various prince nymphs in size 16, rubberlegs, and yellow micro spawn. I have floated from Bonnyview to Anderson and Anderson to Balls Ferry and it seems that both sections are fishing equally as well.

For those of you looking for dates in March I only have 6 availabilities still open. March 2, 19 (Friday), 20 (Saturday), 23, 30-31. Let me know if you would like to book one of these prime time dates.

I hope you are all doing well.

Tight Lines!
