We’re starting to settle into the heat of the Northern California summer here in Redding. The famous Hex Hatch is on at Fall River, and should last through the middle of July. The shad fishing on the Sacramento River near Corning has been red-hot. The Lower Sacramento has been fishing well for trout, with consistent nymphing all day long and some decent dry fly action on caddis in the evenings. The mountain streams (McCloud, Pit, Hat, Upper Sac) have all been fishing well, especially in the evenings when caddis and golden stoneflies come to the water.
