|Phil with a beautiful 24" Lower Sac Rainbow the week after Christmas.|
Hey all. It has been a long time since I have had the time to update my blog. My goal in 2017 is that I will get in the habit of doing this more often so that you guys have current updates of what is going on out there. Send me an email if you want to get out on the river soon.
For anyone looking to get out I have the following days open over the next couple of weeks:
January 9-14, 16, 19-21, 23-24, 26-27
Lower Sac - The Sac continues to fish average for winter conditions. Most days we are hooking 20ish rainbows from Redding down to Anderson. As typical we have been catching some true slugs out of the river this winter. Winter time we might not catch as many fish as the spring or the fall but if you are into hunting for big rainbows then it doesn't really get any better. With the majority of other rivers being blown out right now the Lower Sac is a good safe place to fall back onto. Hot flies recently have been beads and small mayflies. Flies like Hogan's SM, Lance's X-May, PTs, and Flatulators have all been catching fish. The best fishing is from Noon-3PM. So make sure that when you are out there that you fish smarter by being there during the prime hours.
|Luk Lake has been putting out some fun trout fishing in the mornings!|
Luk Lake - Luk Lake continues to fish well in the mornings. The trout fishing on Luk Lake this fall and winter has been the best that I have seen there in a long time. The key is to finding the school of fish in the Lake. Once you find them then you can stay connected to fish most of the morning. The bass fishing has been nonexistent since the cold weather has set in but the trout remain happy to eat most small streamers that go by them.
Feather - The Feather River opener happened on January 1st. So there is going to be some decent fishing to be had on the upper river near the hatchery over the next week. There isn't a ton of water to fish up there but if you spend a half day one can expect to hook 5-7 steelhead per morning. Eggs, Alevins, and small Mayflies will all do the ticket in fooling a few fish.
