Beautiful day but a little slow…

The Lower Sac fished a little slow for us today…it was Hap and Mike from Santa Rosa’s first trip to the Lower Sac and the fish failed to show them any love ! I don’t know what had the fish off of their game today ? lack of insect activity most likely but that’s fishing !The Guys still enjoyed a beautiful day on the Sac, even with the temps hovering around the century mark in Redding it felt more like the 80s on the river. There is no denying that California is in the midst of a historic drought and many rivers and streams throughout the state and especially in the Sierra are running at a trickle but there is some bright spots in the North State. The Lower Sac for one is currently running around 7000 cfs, great flows and chalk full of wild rainbows, the Fall river in Eastern Shasta County is full to the banks with clear cold spring water and is loaded with wild rainbows as well and finally the Trinity… the Trinity’s flow regime is set in place and being controlled by the dam at Trinity Lake, there is water in the lake to maintain the flows through the Summer, Fall and Winter. Steelhead will start arriving in the Trinity in numbers by late September, the water will be there the fish will be there… Will You !!!
