Lower Sac: , by Luke Geraty: Smashing ‘em on the Sac: 3 stars

Since Mark and Chuck had one of those magical days on the Trinity, they figured Lady Luck might give 'em a big goose egg on day number two. So when in doubt, go to the Lower Sac! With all of those resident trout to target, it's also pretty nice not having to wear waders! I mean, someone has to fish in the 70 degree sunny weather, right? Plus, the Sac didn't disappoint. Other than a handful of 16 inch fish, most of the 'bows that these two put in the net were very impressive, both in length and girth. We kept taping 'em and one after the other was around the twenty-two inch mark, including one that was close to twenty-four. Geez. What a day! Anyway, you're probably curious about the fishing details, so here's some of that: the flows are still low -- 3,100 cfs. Water color is great... visibility isn't an issue and fish are proving that by eating size 18 bugs. Which bugs? Book a trip and find out! Ha ha! Jk (or am I?). We caught fish on just about everything... small tiny mayflies, caddis, eggs, rubber legs, etc. Plus some of the guide sorcery stuff, but truth be told there wasn't a single fly that was really the "it" fly. We saw PMD's and a massive caddis hatch, as well some some midges here and there. The morning until about 1pm was solid and we had action pretty consistently throughout. From about 1 until 3, it got slow, but great conversation amongst good people can sure make the time go by quick. As soon as the clock struck 3pm, all of the fish received the notice and they started eating again. Not a bad day... not a bad day at all.
