Recent Fishing Reports by Mike Wright

: Took Ray and John down the Lower Sac on Saturday. Fishing was pretty slow most of the day. There were a couple of places where we ran into a few but for the most part a pretty inconsistent day. With the shorter days now, we were treated to a great shot of the super moon over Mt. Lassen as we finished the drift. Still a great day.

: Drifted with Doug and Jeff on Sunday down the Lower Sac, and like most of the reports you are reading, it did not disappoint. We had multiple hook ups with solid fish most of the day, although things got fairly quiet in the afternoon. Eggs were the thing, but also did some damage on small mayfly nymphs. The theme for our boat on this day was hook'em, fight 'em, and release 'em without touching 'em. Good times.

: I hosted a group from Sacramento on a great trip to the Burney/Fall River area. The guys had a great time fishing the various waters that the area provides. We fished Burney Crrek, Hat Creek and the McCloud RIver. The only disappointment of the weekend was that the McCloud River was full of silt and off color enough to put the fish down. Amazing Salmonfly hatch though. Fishing was slow, but as always, the scenery was magnificent. Every where else we went, the fishing was very good.
