Places to fish this weekend:
Lower Yuba is fishing great right now. The dry fly fishing
is peeking, March Browns, PMD’s, and Caddis in the evenings. I have not seen
dry fly action this good in a very long time. Best dry flies to use are Profile
spinners, Parachute March Brown, March Brown Dun, March Brown Cripple,
Parawulff Brown, March Brown Soft Hackles, Pinkies, Last Chance Cripple PMD,
CDC Pink Albert and Captive Dun PMD.
Feather River Spring Steelhead is good to great, these fish
are hot. Nymph fishing is the way to go on this river. The hot bugs are Fox
Caddis Pupa, Hogan’s Yuba Pupa, Olive Bird’s Nest, Wire Juan, and Sucker Spawn.
The best fishing is in the low flow section of the river.
Lake Davis: Guide John Biaocchi fished Davis recently; he
said fish are in the shallow water and eating almost anything you throw at
them. Beware of special regulations for the feeder creeks most areas around
them are closed for spawning.
Scott’s Flat Reservoir is fishing well for Small Mouth Bass.
The bass are in the shallows staging to spawn. Good pattern’s to use are Pond
Smelt Clouser, Deceptive Cray, Rubber Leg Belder Bugger, Hare Fry, and Flash
