Presentation to Davis Fly Fishers

Tomorrow, October 27, I will be giving a detailed presentation on fishing with "indicators." This class will explore many of the environmental indicators that may yield secrets to catching more fish.

Here is a little peak at what I will be talking about: How to approach new situations with a methodical G.R.I.D. The GRID is looking at Geographical significance, River structure, Insect populations and Desired casts. This approach might help you break down variables.

In addition I have broken down strike indicators to a mad science and will show how to properly rig and use them. You might be thinking that there isn't much to using one of these fancy bobbers, me too. However, somehow I ended up with a 10 page manual on the how to's... crazy. All who join me will get the manual plus other goodies.

Any Granite Bay folks out there have seen this presentation and let me live, so you might like it

It would be great to see you there.

Yuba and Feather Fishing Reports

I have been guiding like a mad man again and have been having a ball. Overall fishing has been good. So far the Yuba has been pretty consistent with some spectacular days. Fish are still looking for round things bouncing on the bottom and they will occasionally nab a nymph or two. There are a decent number of salmon in the river giving us some hope that they might return again next year.

While out there you might notice brightly covered rocks (orange and green) in the river. They are marking the redds. I am sure this is some wort of DFG or DWR study. One of the cool things about this is that if you are not sure what a salmon nest (redd) looks like just find the radioactive rock and study what is around it.

I have been on the Feather too and have not been doing that well out there. I am sure there are a decent number of fish there, but with temperatures in the 80's and full sun... Yeah, not the best conditions to fool chrome. The other day with clients we did managed to hook a few including this hot hen. This girl really ripped it up.
