After several days of chilly unstable weather, a high pressure area has settled over Northern California, causing temperatures to soar. The upswing in the weather has made the excellent trout fishing that has been taking place on the lower Sacramento River even better.
According to Mike Bogue of Mike Bogue’s Guide Service, the river is flowing at about 3,700 cfs and the trout fishing is pretty darn good. Mike is relying on conventional tackle to hook the river’s wild rainbows.
When working shallow riffles and runs, Bogue utilizes back trolled plugs. In deeper areas Pautzke cured roe as well as Pautzke Orange Deluxe Eggs get the nod.
Jason Thatcher of JT Guide Service reported that the fly fishing on the Sacramento River has been very consistent with the best fishing taking place below Bonnieview.
Thatcher’s clients are working multiple fly leaders teamed with indicators for their hook ups. Rubber leg nymphs, pale morning dun nymphs and march brown nymphs are all working well. The average fish goes about 14 inches, but fish ranging up to 5 pounds are pretty common during the month of May.
