Pit River - Northern California, California Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
The Pit is still a good choice even as it cools off. The fish will be spread out and holding in water where you would expect them to be holding. Good flies are Rubberlegs in Black and Brown, and the Amberwing Prince Nymph. Find the pocket water and high stick everything you can reach. Look for some hatches to happen on cloudy days. You may have to search some if the rainfall becomes heavy enough to move sediment. Sculpins stripped in the deeper pools this time of year can find some bigger fish.
