“Beyond every bend in a stream lies a new fishing challenge, for no pool, riffle or rapids is just like the previous one.”
This is prime time for fishing most Plumas County waters. Stream flows are a bit on the low side for this time of year, but that means clear and fishable water. The few streams that are not yet open will open this Saturday.
Lake temperatures are in the ideal range bringing trout into shallow water in pursuit of abundant feed. Callibaetis mayflies and various species of midges are hatching on most lakes. The Callibaetis mayfly is a very important food source for Stillwater trout.
