Current River Conditions: about 141 CFS.  below Downieville.

 

​Fishing-Good:  Sierra Hardware in Downieville reports that fly fishing, in particular has improved this last week.  River in town was just planted on Tuesday.   Attractor fly patterns like Adams Parachutes, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulators etc. are all you need.  In roily water use big and ugly flies like Rubber Legs, both black and variegated.  Keep it simple.

We have guides who are on the North Yuba every day no matter what the season. Give the shop a call (800)410-1222 or click here and we will set you up.
