Waiting For Some Clear Water

The Lower Yuba was 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.


  1. Hi there,

    First off, I am a fan of your website and I especially appreciate the "How Do I fish This?" section as it is a great tool for unfamiliar waters.

    In regards to the Yuba, I am curious if you are fishing below or above Hallwood Boulevard and Sycamore Ranch? Thank you in advance :)

    1. Most of the fly fishing for trout is below HWY 20 bridge. Hallwood is good for shad when they are in but I haven't spend too much time fishing that area.
