Upper Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Family, Friends, & Fly Fishing: 3 stars

Yesterday, Brian Kohlman and I had an exciting day on the Upper Sacramento River with Jon and his family! Besides Jon, the adult "kids" were all new to fly fishing, but they picked it up really quick. The Upper Sac is a great river to learn how to fly fish on because it's beautiful, provides lots of great locations to fish, and the fish are generally pretty willing! The fishing started off fairly slow but that's pretty usual this time off year and it always seems like the fish don't start getting active until the sun hits the water a bit and the bugs start moving. We fished dry-dropper rigs as well as nymphs under indicators and hooked fish on both. In addition to seeing an otter and some birds, we noticed a few October Caddis fluttering around and it will only be a matter of days before you'll see a lot more of those getting the trout going, so keep your stimulators and other big caddis patterns handy! Our group had a lot of fun! Family, friends, and fly fishing... what more do you need on a Tuesday?
