Recent Fishing Reports by Mike Wright

8/28/17 by Mike Wright: What a great day on the Yuba!  Spent the day with Jeff from Sacramento chucking fat grasshoppers all day.  We had a blast!  We had a number of smaller fish come up and crush our fly with mixed results on hooking up as they seemed more poised for a fight than a meal.  The real highlight, was the number of larger of fish that couldn't resist either.  Got a few to the net with a few more heartbreaks.  So fun to watch the grabs!!!! We picked up a few fish nymphing as well so it looks like a good time to get out on the Yuba even with the heat!
8/1/17 by Mike Wright: Hed the pleasure of trying to beat this heat with client Len from Ohio.  We spent a morning and some of the afternoon on the Upper McCloud.  Although the temps finally did reach triple digits, the canyon and water of the McCloud made for an enjoyable day.  We spent our day throwing dry/dropper rigs.  Len hooked into some nice Upper Mac Rainbows on the dry fly and then did battle with a few smaller fish on the nymph as well.  Good times!
7/11/17 by Mike Wright: Spent the last few days in the Intermountain Area fishing Hat Creek and the Pit River with clients Rob and Topher.  We had a great time spending the mornings on the flats of Hat Creek throwing dry flies.  We had a number of fish rising to trico spinners and baetis emergers until around 10 am each day.  We landed mostly smaller fish, but had a few brief encounters with bigger top feeders.  So much fun.  Both guys did great on their casting and long presentations.  In the afternoon, we switched to the cool canopy and deeper pools of the Pit River.  We hooked and landed solid fish both days on wieghted nymph rigs and pretty much had the river to ourselves.  Combo days are a great way to take advantage of the variety of water in the area.

Mike's Guide Season

Lower Sac Year Round
Mike is available year-round to guide the Lower Sac in Redding. Mike has been drift boating for many years and currently uses a fiberglass Hyde drift boat for his guide trips.
Yuba and Feather Rivers
Mike is our only guide that is available on the Feather River and Yuba River. Mike does drift boat trips on both rivers. He floats both the low-flow and high-flow sections on the Feather River. He has a key to the gun club at Daguerre Dam on the Yuba, so he typically floats from the Highway 20 Bridge down to the dam. The Yuba can be good for trout just about any time of year. The Feather is typically best for steelhead from October through November and again from March through May.
Trout Season
Mike has spent his summers in Cassel on the banks of Hat Creek since he was a child. He knows Hat Crekk, the Pit River, and Burney Creek intimately. Mike is a great choice for a guide trip in this diverse area.
Trinity River Steelhead
Mike Wright got his Trinity River guide permit in late 2015. He looks forward to learning the river and guiding his clients on this great California steelhead fishery. Mike is available on the Trinity from October through March.
