Fishing Report for the week of 10/10/2014

“There is no greater fan of fly-fishing than the worm.”

—Patrick F. McManus

The dog days of summer are quickly becoming a thing of the past. 

The warm water of summer (too warm if you happen to be a trout) is giving way to much more comfortable water temperatures thanks to cooler nights, shorter days and a couple of very welcome rain showers.

This is my favorite time of year. 

Normally my biggest challenge is figuring out how to allocate my scarce free time between the harvest in my garden, deer hunting and fishing. 

This year the gophers and deer have pretty much eliminated the gardening option so I am free to focus on the other two activities (and I have a little extra motivation for the deer hunting). But this is about fishing.

The stream flows are still pretty skinny, but falling temperatures are helping improve the bite in local streams and rivers. However, the lakes are where the action is.

An early rally by Chabot in the first quarter last Saturday night put the Feather River College football team in catch-up mode from the get-go to result in a 54-27 loss for the Golden Eagles. The result put both teams at a 2-2 record.

“We knew going in they were a good team,” said FRC coach Bart Andrus. “They played well and we didn’t play as well as we are capable.”
