A journal of fly fishing the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains and beyond.

My how time flies. Tonight I graduate from Feather River College after 2.5 years of study there. What a momentous occasion!
I haven't had much opportunity to fish until recently. I have been concentrating my time on the Middle Fork Feather River and it has been fantastic. Swinging soft hackle flies in the riffles has produced tremendous action on fish to 17" with most in the 12" range.
Good hatches are taking place daily. Little yellow sallies and caddis are the most dominant right now, but I started seeing Golden Stones yesterday and there are also march browns, bwo and PMD,s around as well.
Flows are perfect and the crowds have been light and wet wading is the way to go on the hotter days.
