Lost Coast Outfitters

  • Fall River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 15:49 pm

    Fall River Fly Fishing Report Anthony Carruesco reports on 7.20.18The Fall River and it’s tributaries are fishing excellent right now. Our guru out there: Jay Cockrum has been putting big fish in the net with consistency. This is a bit more technical fishing but extremely rewarding. The Hex hatch is still going strong. That 30-40 minute window before dark can be absolute magic. Big fish and dry flies.. This is a highly recommended trip right now

  • Pit River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 15:38 pm

    Pit River Fly Fishing Report Anthony Carruesco reports on 7.20.18 The Pit River has been kicking out some excellent summer fishing as well. Again - finding that fast oxygenated pocket-water can be the ticket during the heat of the day. There are always dry fly opportunities here late in the day. If you can wade and get around this river well, you should expect to find some great fishing right now. The last light dry fly thing is typically always going off this time of year too.

  • McCloud River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 15:36 pm

    McCloud River Fly Fishing Report Anthony Carruesco reports on 7.20.18The McCloud River has been good to great as well. Finding some shade and picking the fast oxygenated pockets during the heat of the day is fruitful right now. Evening hatches have been getting fish looking up in the right places. Wet wading this river right now is a great way to enjoy this fishery.

  • Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 15:34 pm

    Lower Sacramento Fly Fishing Report Anthony Carruesco reports on 7.20.18he Lower Sac has been a great summer option. The fish certainly aren’t chowing from sunup to sundown but there have been a few windows throughout the day where it’s been “ON”. The quality of the fish right now is as good as you will probably ever see. We’re hooking a lot of 18"-20" trout that probably weight 3-4lbs.. We’ve seen the backing fly off the reel almost every day out on the Sac recently. To avoid the heat of the day the late afternoon/evening has been our preferred window out there. There have been a few dry fly opportunities at last light if you have the patience for it.

  • McCloud River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 13:47 pm

    Chuck Volckhausen reports on 7.20.18Summer conditions are becoming clear and hot weather tactics are advised.  The Mccloud is still fishing well.  Hatches are few but some bugs can still be found and some fish looking up are being caught. Bring lots of water with you as the heat has been hard to escape.

  • Fall River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 20, 2018 | 13:39 pm

    Fall River Fly Fishing Report Dax Messett reports on 7.20.18“Fall River has been fishing very well from mid-morning to early afternoon.  On overcast mornings, some excellent dry fly fishing can be had.  If not, sinking line techniques are working very well.  The Hex hatch is still going strong on most nights, starting sometime after 9pm.  If the wind comes up it’s a bit tougher, but you can still find fish chowing them in the windbreaks tight to the bank.”

  • Truckee River Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 19, 2018 | 13:45 pm

    Truckee River Fly Fishing Report Matt Koles reports on 7.19.18121 MilesGood solid fishing on the Truckee River. Flows have been bumped up a bit, but not much change since last week. Get out in the mornings and you’ll get some fish. Afternoons maybe not so much. It is hot, around 90’ish every afternoon in the Hirsch. Very nice in the mornings.About water temps. Temps will get warm above the outflow of the Little Truckee River. Tahoe City to Boca. They will get warm on the Nevada side -from say Boomtown on down through Reno and out East. Above 68 is too warm to fish, period. Flows from Boca down through Verdi should be good all day. Carry a thermometer if need be. We did this video right before the drought in 2014. Still there were schmucks out fishing, even locals and other guides during the extremely low hot water. You have nothing to worry about this year, just be cool and respect the fish. If you fish through town in Nevada or out East, get after it in the mornings and you’re fine. That river has really rebounded down in there. Lots of wild fish in the 12-16″ inch range now. Keep them healthy y’all.Your[…]

  • Valley Striper Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 19, 2018 | 13:30 pm

    Valley Striper Fly Fishing Report Capt. Chuck Regan reports on 7.19.18Summer Striper fishing in the river has been heating up in the Sacramento, Feather and Yuba Rivers. If you’ve experienced the solitude our rivers offer in the summer and the sheer power of morone saxatilis corking a 9wt then you’re most likely already on the books for this year.  If you haven’t enjoyed these fisheries yet, don’t hesitate to book as available dates are already filling through to fall.  See you at the boat launch!

  • Eastern Plumas County Creeks Fly Fishing Report

    Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop Jul 19, 2018 | 13:21 pm

    Eastern Plumas County Creeks Fly Fishing Report Jon Baiocchi reports on 7.19.18The weather is hot right now, and so is the fishing on Eastern Plumas county creeks. I’m stoked to be in front of the A/C while I type out this report, it’s 92 degrees in Portola! All of the creeks in the area are perfect right now, typical summer flows and not too low. Water temperatures are 58 in morning and 65 in the late afternoon, so fish early for the best results. The creeks have rebounded from the last drought and I’m very surprised to see some native rainbows in the 9 to 12-inch range. Best dry flies have been caddis, ants, and hoppers. For big numbers, fish each pocket efficiently with a few casts and keep moving upstream. For the deeper pools tie a longer dropper with a #16 psycho prince, or a red copper john. The further you hike in the better, and if you do not see any footprints like we did yesterday, you’re golden.Now is the time to get out and explore Gray Eagle, Frazier, Jamison, Grizzly, and Little Jamison creeks. Water levels will be dropping as we creep into August, and some creeks will fare better than others. I’ve got open dates[…]
