Recent Fishing Reports by Mike Wright

3/18/18 by Mike Wright: Spent a great day chasing steelhead on the Feather before the recent rains.  Took my friend Ray and my son JT through the low flow section of the Feather River last Sunday and we had a blast.  There were bright half pounders and adult steelhead throughout the river and they were ready to eat.  The grab was consistent all day and the fish were strong and fiesty.  I can only imagine that a little fresh water from this storm will make the fishing even better soon.  Good time of year to hit the Feather.
12/9/17 by Mike Wright: Spent a cold and clear day on the Trinity with Nick and Dave.  We had a great day as far as weather and conversation, but the fishing conditions were tough.  The low and clear water proved to be a challenge.  We nymphed most of the day but also swung flies with single hand and traditional spey rigs.  We touched one fish briefly on the swing and had two nice encounters on nymph rig.  On the second grad we were able to bring a beautiful wild hen to the net.  All in all an enjoyable day, but it's hard work hooking up right now. 
10/29/17 by Mike Wright: Recently took clients Martin and Steve on a two location trip in Northern California.  We spent the first day on the Lower Sac with mixed results.  We had our chances at some fish but just couldn't seem to make much happen.  Day 2 was a day spent on the Feather River.  We had a great time exploring the "new look" low flow section of the river and boated some nice hatchery steelhead, a super fun wild buck, and even a fair hooked salmon.  Weather was gorgeous and I was encouraged by the results on the Feather as so much has changed since all of the ordeals from laster winter.

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.
