MIDDLE FORK FEATHER RIVER FLY FISHING

Middle Fork Feather River Guided Fly Fishing Trips with Baiocchi’s Troutfitters

About Fly Fishing The Middle Fork Feather River

The Middle Fork Feather River is California’s first adopted Wild & Scenic River and a jewel, with so many hatches to encounter you’re sure to fall in love with it too. Early season brings streamer fishing and your best shot of the larger trout in the watershed. Nymphing gets the job done and is the most productive fly fishing technique, but the last hours of light in late spring and early summer brings trout to the surface for profuse caddis and mayfly hatches, and some incredible dry fly fishing. The fall season is another highlight on the Middle Fork Feather River, hoppers and blue wing olive mayfly spinner falls entice the wild trout to the surface and fatten up for the long winter months.

Middle Fork Feather Carp

The challenging game of sight fishing for carp is also an added venue for those fly anglers that are interested. It helps to be proficient at casting and experienced with fighting large fish. You’ll be hunting the flat water and looking for active feeding fish rooting on the bottom substrate, and it’s not easy. June through September is prime time for sight fishing to the golden ghost in the uppermost part of the river near the town of Portola. Carp range from 4 to 12 pounds and are incredibly explosive when first hooked, often taking an angler into their backing with long runs. Check out my latest video featuring stalking Carp on the Middle Fork Feather River below, produced by Ken Hanley of Pacific Extremes

The Middle Fork Feather River offers unbound beauty, good fishing, and more often than not, complete solitude. There are numerous access areas in the recreational zone from the town of Clio down to Nelson Creek. Further downstream the Middle Fork Feather River enters the canyon and access here is very limited. Jon focuses on the recreational zone where he is permitted by the US Forest Service to legally guide. Experience the beauty of a designated Wild & Scenic river, and explore the Feather River Country!

“My time with Jon on the Middle Fork of the Feather River was extremely enjoyable. He put me on to wild trout that were very picky, but his fly selection did the trick. I’m looking forward to my next trip to Graeagle and spending more time with Jon.”

-Dick Seevers, Rocklin CA

My day on the Middle Fork Feather River with Jon was one of the best I’ve experienced. Prime water, solitude, and many wild trout to hand. His knowledge of the area, and aquatic insects were second to none. I plan on fishing with Jon again this summer”
-Chris Fukuchi, Denver CO
