New outing ready to download: Upper Sacramento

Postby paul » Thu Jan 03, 2008 10:19 pm

You can download the Upper Sacramento River with this link: http://www.pishtech.com/rwffa110_UpperSac.zip. Make sure you have the Third Edition and the 118 update.

Some notes: The fish are abundant, many are big, and all are very picky. All the hatches in this outing are new, and the fish are NOT equally interested in all the insects you may find. The fish are also concentrated in very specific feeding lanes, so you might want to scout the water in Cheater mode first. Examine the insects closely. If you don't have the perfect match for the insects, especially the nymphs, go tie some up to match these new hatches.

This update is 28 MB, and includes 30 sites, plus 39 new photos of rainbow trout. These include some of the best fish photos I've ever taken, and most were actually shot on the Sacramento River.

Good luck!

Paul

Hey folks,

If you're having trouble with the download, remove that period at the end of the link and you'll be just fine. It had me stumped for a bit.

Good catch - thanks! This forum system doesn't quite understand when a URL ends. Here's the link without extra punctuation:

flies for sacramento

Postby abourn » Fri Jan 04, 2008 7:06 pm

fishmaster-

one fly i have found to be quite useful is a caddis larva tied using the FB (farbetter) caddis case, weighted with lead wire, and a small ginger hen hackle (wet fly of course). Had several fish with this, one of which snapped the the 3lb breaking strain leader i was using - guess i'll never know how big! I also found that a stonefly nymph will catch. Havent managed to get a rise out of any of them yet, i've found they are feeding mainly below the surface.

p.s if anyone produces a pattern for the blue-bottle style hatch on sacremento i would be very interested to see! (and if anyone knows what that yellow coloured beetle/larva is!)

p.p.s FB fly-tying parts can be found in the add-on pack, which can be found at the clubhouse! best of luck, hope this helps.

I think that yellow beetle larva is a "Little Golden Stone" pupa or larva. Can't help with the actual "catching" advice part. I got it downloaded, shuffled through the sites to check out the scenery and checked the hatches then got interrupted and haven't made it back yet.

The photos are wonderful and it looks like a great site. I think we'll all need to spend some time at the bench before we can master this one. Great outing Paul!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe Cutch has a batch of flies tied up by now. Check with him........

I used a bead head stone fly nymph with good results. Also i tied a dry stonefly to match the lighter golden stones that are hatching and landed a 16in rainbow on the first outing with it.

Hi Paul,
Happy new Year :lol: What an absoluteley wonderful looking outing.
Have tried a couple of glides and had some success - but this one offers
more of a challenge, thinking involved here :roll: . I also have fish, mainly Seatrout and Salmon, stripping all line out and not being able to recover
any. Problem seems to happen after fighting a fish for 1 min+, I thought
it was me :!: Obviously not. Thanks for outing, it's great. :D :lol: :wink:
