|Tim H. of Yuba City fighting a healthy 15" Rainbow caught on a PMD Sparkle Dun|
Warm weather and plenty of sunshine was bountiful today on the Lower Yuba. PMD mayflies were out in full force and there were many fish rising for duns and emergers through out the day. Technical presentations were a must and had to be spot on with your fly drifting first. Skwala stone flies were out as well crawling on the shoreline rocks and flying. I did not see any fish take one on the water though. The fished were keyed in on the PMD's big time! Effective dry flies were PMD Sparkle Duns, and Quigley Cripples in sizes 14 and 16. If you plan on fishing the river look for pods of rising trout and approach cautiously, they are spooky right now and can be put down by a bad cast.
Everyday is different here, but I suspect with these warm temps the bugs will be out and the fish looking up. Good luck out there!
