Waiting For Some Clear Water
The Lower Yuba has been fishing pretty well. It is currently blown out due last weekend's storm event but I had the chance to fish it during both a sunny and overcast day before the storm rolled in. I checked out a few "new" areas and found my new favorite spot. Lots of holding water in a close proximity a ways away from the main road are the perfect goldilocks zones.
San Juan worms were producing a lot of good fish in the deeper areas and the rubber leg stone seemed to work best near structure. I mostly nymphed but swung where I felt I could cover the most amount of water with good results.
The Lower Yuba just lowered to it's regular winter flows today but is predicted to rise again this weekend with rain predicted all week. The river will most likely not be fishable for a while but that's how it goes.
