Lower Sacramento River

(updated April 16, 2022)

The flows are currently at 3,800 cfs.  From Keswick Dam to the 44 Bridge is closed until August 1st. I have been fishing from the Posse Grounds to Anderson and from Anderson to Balls Ferry.  The fishing has been really good with big fish being caught up top and a little small fish down lower but more numbers.  I have been able to get some fish on the swing, stripping in flies, and dry fly late afternoon and evening.  Come and experience the Lower Sacramento River in a different way.   

I now have my Forestry Permit and I am starting to guide walk and wades on Hat Creek, McCloud River, and Pit River.  I have been catching fish Euro nymphing, dry fly, indicator, and swinging.
