Feather River - September 16th, 2005
supplied by: Al Brown's Guide Service
FISHING: Fair
Water temperatures have dropped and salmon fishing picked up last week--still not great, but certainly better than before. Shanghai Bend has been one of the better spots downstream, while the Outlet down to Palm Ave. has been sporadically decent at the upstream end of the main stem Feather. Some good steelhead action for fish to 9 pounds occurred for a few days last week, but, like the salmon fishing, steel heading was good one day, not so good the nex

Feather River - July 1st, 2005
supplied by: Al Brown's Guide Service
FISHING: Fair
Flows are fluctuating between 2500 and 6000 cfs every few days, and nobody knows why. They’re filling the afterbay, then dumping it, then filling it. The best bite on the whole river in early a.m. between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Good numbers of salmon have shown up for spinner fishermen at the Outlet, and if you find a deep hole in the Low Flow and you’re the first one there you have a good chance of getting a king. Some shad still around in the flat below the Outlet Hole.

Feather River - June 4th, 2005
supplied by: Al Brown's Guide Service
FISHING: Fair
Conditions in the lower end of the Feather improved last week as flows in the Yuba River dropped and cleared, and striped bass fishing improved. Anglers fishing the Outlet spring run king salmon experienced some good days and some not so good, and it was hard to predict which would be which based on flows and weather, which A few shad were being caught at Shanghai Bend, but they weren¹t concentrated, because high flows washed out the rapids that usually hold them up at that location. Flows below the Outlet had dropped back to 2,500 cfs by the weekend.

Feather River - May 21st, 2005
supplied by: Al Brown's Guide Service
FISHING: Good
This is the place to go for striped bass until the Sacramento comes back down. The high flows brought quite a few striped bass upriver, and anglers have been catching them by throwing lures, including swim- and jerk baits toward the bank, and drifting minnows. Although most spring run king salmon are still hung up at the mouth of the Yuba River, some to over 20 pounds are being caught at the Outlet on big spinners. Shad fishing continues to be only fair, because fish are spread out in the high flows.

NORTH FORK--Flows are still high, but clear, and rainbow trout from 10 inches up to the occasional 20 incher, have been increasingly willing to come to the surface to hit dry flies. Fishing should continue to improve over the next few weeks as flows drop and the water warms a bit. The key on the Feather, as well as other foothill streams, is to fish dam-controlled sections of stream, whenever possible.

Feather River - May 14th, 2005
supplied by: Al Brown's Guide Service
FISHING: Good
Flows came up a bit and seemed to attract striped bass, shad and spring run king salmon. Two springers, 22 and a 24 pounders were caught at the Outlet in one day, the best showing so far this season. Both were caught on big Blue Foxes. Shad were starting to bunch up at Shanghai Bend, although fishing for them was still spotty. Striped bass fishing picked up significantly, although most stripers were small, in the 4- to 5-pound class. They were being caught on minnows, pile worms, and sardines. Pencil Poppers and Bombers were fooling some fish at Shanghai Bend.

supplied by: Evaday Guide Service
RECORDED:    57 °   FISHING: Fair
 Steelhead fishing was rough due to wind and rain,

But with the weather clearing this week, fishing  should improve dramatically. There are a lot of Steelies in the system.

Feather River - November 14th, 2003
supplied by: Leland Flyfishing Outfitters
FISHING: Good
Central California guide Andrew Harris reports steelhead are in the river but not in the same numbers as compared to last year.  However, there are some bigger fish this year. Better make such you take the eight weight as well as the seven! Andrew says the river is fishing really well one day and fair the next and suggests you keep moving to find the fish. Andrew reports most steelies are being taken on small nymphs as opposed to egg patterns, but don’t leave home without a few eggs.

Wet Flies:
#14 - 20 BH Prince, Birdsnest, Poo-pah or Zwing, and BH Flashback PT, #16-20 Micromay and black midge pupa (zebra), Unreal egg and Tim's Fertilizer
