                                          Photo by Chuck Volckhausen WWFF The beauty of fishing our rivers these days is the lack of people fishing, we have had recent days where we haven’t seen another soul on the water….believe me not complaining.

  • The McCloud River Fishing Report

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Jul 20, 2017 | 12:26 pm

    The McCloud River gave us a show last week. We ended up with some great fish and some good dry fly fishing. Overall the hatches are weak this year. However for 20-30 minutes, the PMD hatch was damn fine and there are enough Yellow Sallies flying around to keep the trout looking up throughout the […]

    Mother McCloud Daze Dog Daze officially here. Best fishing has been mornings and evenings. If you must get out there during the peak of the day when the sun is directly overhead seek out the heavy, oxygenated, frothy water. The fish on both the McCloud and Upper Sac love this type of water during midday. […]

    It is all about the McCloud right now. Flows are a bit high but as you can see very user friendly. The visibility is about the clearest you will see until Mud Creek kicks in its glacial tint which is just around the corner. The snow melt on Mt. Shasta has cranked up and it’s […]
