After a crazy, record breaking series of March snowstorms,
I have finished shoveling (with a lot of help from mother nature) and have returned to the big lake, Pyramid. The fishing has been hit or miss with a few 30 fish days here and there, but mostly 5- 10 fish days are common. Both stripping and midging has been productive and a few fish over 10 lbs have been landed.
Now for the good news...the Tribal Council voted on April 1st( no joke) to reopen the Nets effective immediately. This decision has been a long time coming and will help spread out the spring crowds.
The Middle Fork Feather river opened on April 2nd from the Railroad Bridge above the A-23 bridge in Beckworth to the Mohawk Bridge.
The river is very high and unfishable at this point.
It may be a while before it comes down to fishable levels, but when it does we should see some excellent dry fly fishing opportunities all summer long!
