Trout Fishing Excellent For Both Fly And Conventional Tackle Anglers

Written By: Cal Kellogg, June 2, 2014
Species: Trout
Location: Sacramento River- Middle, Sacramento River- Upper,

Flows out of Keswick Reservoir were around 6,900 cfs as of press time and fishing has been very good for wild rainbows. In addition to the solid fishing, anglers can also look forward to great weather and light fishing pressure.

Jason Thatcher of JT Guide Service disclosed that the fly fishing on the Sacramento River has been very good with the best fishing taking place below Bonnyview.

While there has been a bit of dry fly action on tap recently nymphing is the way to go if you’re a fly guy.

Thatcher has been utilizing 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 always possible when fishing the Sac.

Mike Bogue of Mike Bogue’s Guide Service is offering trips on the Sacramento for conventional tackle anglers.

“We aren’t doing anything fancy to hook the trout. In the deeper holes we are utilizing glow bugs, Pautzke Yellow Jacket and Orange Deluxe eggs and Pautzke cured roe. In the shallower areas we are relying on back trolled plugs. The average trout is running 15 to 16 inches right now and we’ve being seeing plenty of fish in the 18 to 22 inch class.”
