Winter is almost here...
The weather has taken a decidedly cold turn towards winter.Nighttime temps are running in the teens and ice is starting to form in the margins.With this change, my focus on fishing venues changes.Pyramid Lake is fishing well right now with fish to 13lbs being landed. Reports are starting to roll in from the Trinity with a mixture of wild and hatchery steelhead being caught. Swinging flies is my preferred method to catch steel, but whatever method you choose to fish is cool and as long as it is legal I say go for it!!
Lake Davis has been fishing well for the past few weeks with fish putting on the feed bags.Water temps have been in the upper 40's but that is quickly changing. If you plan on fishing Davis in the next week or so,dress warm and have a great time! One recent report said to use a 20' leader with a floating line.This is absolutely not necessary to be successful right now.I have been having great days there with only a 9-12' leader to 4x.Theses fish are NOT leader shy! Sheep Creek's, cinnamon wiggle tails, and buggers have produced lately.
November 15 brings the end to the general trout season on the Middle Fork Feather River and tributaries.It has been a great season this year!
Thanks for all of the support this season! I look forward to fishing with you all again next season!!
