    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Oct 27, 2016 | 19:44 pm

    McCloud Dreamy Creamy With all the current conditions we are putting up with you would think things are tough but guess what, it hasn’t been all too bad. Now that could change on the McCloud (talk about clouded) and the Upper Sac any time but up until recently both rivers have been giving up decent […]

  • Last days of August on the McCloud

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Sep 1, 2016 | 19:32 pm

    This August proved to be a productive month on the McCloud River.  Some hefty fish from the lake have reached the upper stretches surprising many anglers with incredible fights and acrobatic get aways. Gotta love it. The water clarity and temperature drastically changes from the upper stretches all the way down to Bollibokka. Up top […]

  • McCloud River Fishing Report Thursday July 14th

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Jul 14, 2016 | 23:54 pm

    Bollibokka and the Nature Conservancy are experiences some phenomenal fishing, too bad its only for a couple hours a day. Mid-day is tougher out there. Some of our peers are boasting midges with 7x, but I don’t even own 7x. It has been great wet wading/swimming and though fishing this time of year is not […]
