North Fork Yuba River Fly Fishing Report

8/16/2018 – The flows have dropped to summer time lows, trout are now concentrated in the deeper pools, slots, and runs. Water temperatures in the morning are 58 degrees and reaching 65 by the afternoon. Currently there is still a good population of caddis on the river ranging in sizes from 14 to 18. Terrestrials are now very important flies. Fishing has been extremely good, especially if you cover water! For a more detailed report click HERE

Little Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

8/16/2018 – I’ve been guiding the Little Truckee and have seen some pretty good days. It’s been busy though!  Terrestrials are becoming more important during this hot weather so keep those hopper, ant, and beetle patterns handy. Midge pupa is the most abundant food item day in and day out. Flows are at 93 cubes and lots of drifting moss through out the system.
