  • Summer Wrapping Up

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Aug 30, 2019 | 00:11 am

    August fishing has actually been pretty good considering it’s usually the slowest month here. Given we are still experiencing the last of the snow melt and cooler water temps it has been a good time the last few weeks on both the McCloud, Upper Sac, Lower Sac and McCloud Reservoir for clients. It looks like […]

  • Summer Fishing Has Been Excellent

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Aug 8, 2019 | 18:27 pm

    Upper Sacramento and McCloud Rivers It’s the Daze of the Dog time. July and August are always hot and the bug activity is pretty much on siesta. One nice thing though is the rivers are still experiencing runoff, not high flows but colder than usual water temps. Wet wading is optional and for some the […]

    Upper Sacramento River The Upper Sac is in perfect shape now. July is here but fortunately the days are very mild, we have experienced no serious heat waves yet and the water remains cold due to the continuing runoff. We are seeing the Golden Stones just about ready to leave the party but on the […]

    The Upper Sacramento River The river flows are now just south of 1000 cfs. These flows allow added access locations and as the river continues to drop additional spots will open up. It has been a crazy spring for the river but we are starting to see a shift to normalcy and it will continue […]

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing May 23, 2019 | 17:12 pm

    It’s been quite the dance this past week with all the rain and even a bit of snow. However we have been making things work . It’s been about putting on the raincoat and dealing with the increased flows. We’ve seen some spectacular fish come to the net and even the dry fly has been […]

  • Great First Week To Our Season

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing May 6, 2019 | 00:08 am

    The Wild Waters Fly Fishing crew was not letting high water conditions spoil our “traditional” trout opener last weekend. Our guides found water to fish and fish to be caught. The snow melt is making it tougher than normal but over the years we have learned where and how to successfully handle these conditions. The […]

  • Spring Season Has Arrived

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Apr 26, 2019 | 17:11 pm

    Well here we are just before the general opening of all our rivers and guess what, we have a lot of water to deal with. The McCloud is flowing north of 1100 cfs at Ah Di Nah and the Upper Sac is north of 4000 cfs. These numbers are double and triple what our average […]

  • Remembering Joe Kimsey

    Wild Waters Fly Fishing Apr 10, 2019 | 01:01 am

    As we approach the upcoming season we should remind all of you about why and how the Ted Fay Fly Shop is what it is and why it is an institution here in Northern California. Ted Fay started his guiding business in Dunsmuir in the early 50’s out of a motel he owned offering free guiding for […]

    Winter Steelhead Report Our guides continue to find late season steelhead success in NorCal, Southern OR and on the coast. Weather has been spectacular recently meaning t-shirts and sunscreen. Although the forecast of rain is looming out there once again we are not seeing any dire predictions of gully washers so favorable conditions should prevail […]

      Right now and for the next week or more is your window of opportunity to enjoy some great fishing. The relentless string of Winter storms that just kept rolling in off the Pacific are being kicked in the groin by a sweet high pressure system over us. Most rivers are dropping into shape around […]
