Fishing Report
Updated - 9/11/23


Current Conditions: Normal and clear

Fishing-Great:  Baum Lake is relieble no matter what month of the year. The Fly Shop in Redding reports that conditions have remained the same this week. "the lake has had consistent hatches of Blue Wing Olives lately that have fish looking up. The most productive offerings are Baetis and midge nymphs now fished under a small dry. Sweet Peas, the light BP Weiss Nymphs, and #18 olive S&M nymphs are all good. The Trico hatch is ongoing with spinners in the morning drawing fish to eddies just off the current. The Drowned Trico is always a good bet here under a small dry or indicator. Caddis have appeared as well and a great tactic is to swing a soft hackle or a small Bird's Nest. Zug Bugs can have fish grabbing as well. Look upstream around the bend for Callibaetis coming off, the spinners in the morning will have fish taking them just off of the current seams"
