Streams and Creeks

Other Rivers and Creeks – Walk and wade only

Full Day: $500 (1-2 Anglers) / Half Day: $375 (1-2 Anglers)

Northern California has numerous tributaries flowing throughout the Sierra Nevada’s. Upper Sacramento River, McCloud River, Hat Creek, Pit River, North Fork Feather River, are just some of the more popular destinations. These rivers, creeks, and steams highlight the beauty of what is Northern California. They feed the heart of California, the Lower Sacramento River watershed. These areas are off the beaten path and typically see less pressure than our valley rivers. For several months, on many of these rivers, fish don’t see a single person. Most of these are seasonal with special regulations, which enhances the fishing experience. In general, the best time to fish in these areas is May-June. However, these areas fish well throughout the summer and fall.

Technique and equipment vary quite a bit, depending on the water we fish. We implement a variety of techniques throughout the day, depending on how the fish are behaving. At any given time we could be technical fishing with dries, tight line nymphing, Euro nymphing, or even indicator fishing. Wading these rivers and creeks can be tough and physically challenging. There is a lot of hiking, climbing over large rocks, boulders, and wading through slippery river bottoms. However, the reward is worth the effort, these fish are healthy and well-fed from a plentiful supply of aquatic insects and cold water temps. With good hatches of stones, caddis, mayflies, and midges you can expect hard fighting wild rainbows/browns, depending on the water you are fishing. If hiking over the hills through the wood, and water in search of feisty trout is your game, then these are the waters for you.
