Egg Bite Report & Dates

Egg Bite is Here!!!
Egg Bite has had a decent start on the Lower Sac. The fish over there have been happy to have some salmon in the river. Most days right now on the upper river we are hooking 50+ fish. The salmon run this year has been slower to start as compared to historic averages. It seems like every couple of days we get a handful of new salmon in the runs. So this sets up well for November assuming we have the same thing keep happening. This trickle effect we are getting for the Salmon Run hopefully means it could be a great November and even early December Egg Bite. Only time will tell but I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed that we keep getting little groups of salmon for the next 6 weeks.

For those of you looking for dates I still have a handful of openings in November. Also start looking at your December calendars to get in on the winter egg and alevan bite on the Lower Sac. The biggest fish of the year are caught in December and January on the Lower Sac.
Also starting Thanksgiving Weekend I will once again be guiding weekends for those of you that cant get off during the week.
Hope all of you are well and enjoying some much needed family time this weekend.

Open Dates:
November 13, 19-20, 23-24, 28 (Saturday)
December 1, 3-23, 27-31

Incredible Spring Fishing Coming Soon!

- Spring Fishing -
Literally best fishing of the year
I hope this note finds all of you well. It is that time of year where the fishing is about to go off in Northern California. From March to mid May some of the best fishing of the year is going to be found in the North Valley. I hope you will find some time to come hang out on the water and catch some great fish and a few memories. My openings are below:
Open Dates:
March 1, 3, 7-15, 17, 19-20, 22-23, 27-28, 30
April 1, 3-4, 9, 14, 18-23, 25-28, 30
May 2-15
Feather River - As most of you know the Feather is really special in the spring time. This is hands down my favorite time to fish the Feather. Hot pissed off valley steelhead make this an awesome time to be on the water. If you haven't done this type of fishing then this is the year to get out there and give it a try. Mid March to early May is pretty impressive out there.

Lower Sac - The spring on the Lower Sac the last 3 years has been absolutely insane. March and April has been some of the best fishing that we have seen on the river all year long. If you are looking for big rainbows then these two months are the best of the year. Fish like the one at the top of the email are becoming normal on the Lower Sac.

Yuba - If you are into throwing dry flies then this is the time of year for you. The largest hatches of the year come off in March and April. With that comes really great opportunities to throw dry flies during the March brown and PMD hatches. The March Brown hatch is really impressive and a blast to fish as we try to fool those smart Yuba Rainbows.
Bass Fishing - Spring is also prime time for the bass fishing on the Sacramento River and Luk Lake. I have been guiding Luk Lake now for 3 years and it is still some of the best bass fishing that I have ever seen. Totally worth and evening of popper fishing to get you all excited about these bucket mouths.
