Yuba Report / 7 Club Tour / Pleasanton
Well, it finally rained, with a second wave moving in right now bringing another 2-3 inches. The Lower Yuba River is currently running at 807 cfs, with Deer creek at 60, down from the peak of 310cfs. This added some color to the river and when it clears, it should fish better with a little stain to it. I'ts been so clear and low, making those rainbows spooked out. Last week I've seen increased Skwala activity, nothing like last year at this time but a passing full moon has a way of getting those bugs going. BWO's have been out as well, some days the hatch is fairly strong to get the fish on top. There is a ton of worms in the system too, so make sure to bring your San Juan worms. Other top subsurface flies have been Red Copper Johns, Military Mays, and S&M's #16-18. Dries; match the hatch.
