Pit River - Northern California, California Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
With the heat showing up here in the North State, it's time the the Pit river rainbows start their migration into the highly oxiginated waters of the riffles and pocket water. Break out those long Euro stick and drop a dark colored jig fly of choice into some white water and hold on! There will still be some good dry fly action in the evening if you stay late.
