Mokelumne Tributary Fishing Report

After completing the Mokelumne River Cleanup with Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited and Amador Flyfishers on Saturday May 3rd, Reese Orlander decided to take me up on my invitation to fish one of the tributaries to the North Fork of the Mokelumne River.  We headed by my house to drop off the cleanup supplies and then ventured farther up the hill in search of a little excitement.  We got on the water a little after 3:00 and found quite a bit of insect activity for the small body of water we were fishing.  There were stoneflies, caddis flies and mayflies in abundance.  


We were greeted with some very aggressive, altough small, rainbow and brown trout.  We each got into our fair share of them.

We fished until about 6:15 and then headed back to the truck for the trip out.  We agreed that we definitely needed to spend a longer day up here again soon.
