North Yuba Report 7-23-14

The release...

Fishing on this gem of a freestone river remains good for small wild rainbows. Flows are still good and water temps are ranging from 64-68 degrees. Not too many bugs hatching during the day but there is a solid caddis hatch in the evenings. Rubber leg crystal stimulators (10-16), golden stoneflies(8-10), Turk’s Tarantula(10-14), EC Caddis(12-16) and Thalkans Double Dutch Bug (8-10) are all working. Nymphs such as jigged PT’s, G6 caddis, pink mallard and purple mallard hung under a big dry are also working. Concentrate on riffles , runs and pocket water from Downieville up to Bassets Station. The fishing above Bassets is stellar but the nature of the river is more of a brush choked small stream. Pressure is fairly light along the entire river. One word about etiquette; it is unnecessary to stop and fish at a pull out where another angler is already fishing as there are miles and miles of access on this river.
