Fish the Upper Sac Above Castella

The Fly Shop

Report Date:

Report: The river looks good, however it is warming, so you will want to go higher up in the system. Castella and above would be good. The Poxyback Golden Stone is a good fly or float a Chubby Chernobyl for some surface action. Darker nymphs such as Eng things, Amberwing Prince Nymphs, black Micro Mays and Zebra midges are also working well. Focus on the faster, deeper water for the best results!
