Hot weather = hot action on the Lower Sac

Lower Sacramento river evening caddis hatch fly fishing

Chris Haedrich land a typical Lower Sacramento River rainbow while fly fishing at dusk. Summer evening action can be fantastic with adult and emerging caddis patterns.

An indication summertime has officially arrived in Northern California, besides the 110 degree weather, is the splashy rise of a fat Lower Sacramento river rainbow grabbing an emerging or adult caddisfly during Redding’s glorious evening hours. During a recent, busy, Saturday we weren’t able to get on the river until around 8:00 PM, and still had time to see action on nymphs and dries in the hour and a half before darkness closed in.

We encountered decent numbers of yellow sally stoneflies as the sun set, which got a few fish working the surface before the caddis started coming off. Prior to the hatch of caddis and flopping stoneflies, we had action on tan caddis pupae (Fox’s Poopah #14) trailed by smaller brown mayfly nymphs (Hogan’s S&M and peasant tails, #16-18). The dry action came just before dark on an assortment of yellow sally patterns for the stones, and elk hair caddis and Mercer’s Missing Link for the caddis.

The Lower Sac’s convenience makes it easy to overlook sometimes, yet every time I get out there, no matter for how long, I ask myself “why don’t I do this more often”? The fishing can be great all day, but even if you just have an hour or two before sunset to get on the river you can still have some fabulous fishing. Hope to see you out there!
