Fishing Report - Middle Fork Feather River
I'd like to point out how a patch of foam is "home" to the trout in the river. This foam gives stellar coverage for the fish and pulls in and traps all types of aquatic insects. I had fun with this patch draggin caddis patterns across the top, 7 small rainbows came out of here. Effective flies for high sticking today was a #6 Golden Stone nymph with a #16 BH pheasant tail flash back. The most effective dry today was a #12 X-Caddis with a cream shuck and a brown body. Fishing pressure is on the light side and if you don't like company just walk upstream or downstream of the access areas. Come on up, It's time to fish the Wild & Scenic Middle Fork Feather River!
