Lower Sac Report by Brian Kohlman

I had a great time today with my first-time guests Mike and Martin. The grab was a bit spotty in the morning (which has been the norm lately), but things started heating up by mid-morning! Mike hooked into a really large fish - but after a series of “mishaps,” including his running line getting stuck between his reel frame and drag knob, the fish eventually came unpinned. The grab really turned on after lunch and remained very consistent throughout the afternoon. In the end, Mike and Martin both landed some really great fish – including probably the largest (heaviest) sucker I have ever seen and even had some doubles! The “egg bite” should last into the second week of November, so if you’re looking for a really fun day of fishing, contact us at and let’s book a trip!

Today was our annual Trout Spey trip with the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club. My guests were Frank, Erik, and Kevin.  The grab started slow, but then became pretty consistent and everyone connected with fish throughout the day. Most of our fish were in the 12” – 14” range, but Erik landed a nice hatchery steelhead in the 17” – 18” range and Frank had a fish hammer his swung fly so hard it broke him off!  The day began a little windy but died down by mid-afternoon and we ended with a perfect fall day.

Mike and Dave have been friends since school. Mike fishes a lot and wanted to introduce Dave to the sport of fly fishing. After some quick instruction off we went! The grab was on right away, and after a few swings and misses we were hooking and landing some beautiful wild rainbows. Dave had the “seat of honor” in the front of the boat, which has it’s pluses and minuses as the guide is either helping you all the time or yelling “mend, set, strip, etc” all the time, depending on your viewpoint. The grab tapered off a bit in the afternoon but we caught fish all the way to the takeout. Dave was a tv cameraman for some major sports teams, which made for some great stories, which I won’t repeat here. These guys needled each other all day, which is what good friends do. Lots of fun!
