Fly Fishing Update & Openings

 
 
Great Fishing Continues & Shad Season Soon!
I hope this note finds all of you doing well and enjoying this beautiful weather we are having this weekend. With this being Earth Week I thought that it was time I send you guys an update on what is happening to the fishing in the valley. Needless to say it has been a busy month with lots of fishing on the Lower Sac and Feather Rivers. Both rivers continue to fish well. The Lower Sac is still have good days with 40-50 fish hookups being common. The Feather has lots of half pounders throughout the entire system with a few adults mixed in throughout the day.
 
I am offering a $100 discount on half day trips for the Lower Sac on May 6 and May 27. So that is a half day trip for $275! I have shad trips planned that evening and I'm trying to fill in the mornings. Email me ASAP to score one of these dates!
 
The Sac will continue to fish well through June. As we get into May we will start fishing the lower parts of the river near cottonwood. May and June is an awesome time of year to go fish the "Rocks" and the "Swirls". So come out and see the part of the Sac that many have never experienced.
 
The Feather season will be wrapping up in the middle part of May. With the amount of fish in High Flow right now then we should have good fishing on the Feather for the next several weeks. As those fish move up the river then there will be lots of fish stacking up in the Low Flow section. There are still a few openings if you want to get in on a last minute Feather trip. See dates below.

With May around the corner it is also time to start thinking about getting some shad dates on the calendar. I have heard a few rumors that the very first couple fish have been seen in the river. Expect the first wave of fish to show up the first part of May. Shad fishing should be good through June 10ish. For those of you that are planners then its not to far out to start thinking about PRIME TIME striper fishing in July as well. The striper fishing keeps getting better and better and something that I will have limited openings for during prime time season in July. If you are into striper fishing or just want to give it a try then now is the time to book those trips.
 
I look forward to seeing many of you in the next couple months. I'm excited about the thought of starting to throw some lines for bass, shad, and stripers. Hope you are well and have the chance to get some fishing in. Send me an email if you are interested in dates.
