No New Posts The creek is full of mud again. (Preview)
Well, the creek is full of mud from the last couple of big storms , BUT, the gloryhole is only three feet from the top and they are predicting a possible return of the atmospheric river that hammered us last week. If that happens it is very possible that the hole will spill over for the second time in three y...

No New Posts The creek is blown out (Preview)
Spent yesterday (Jan. 22nd) out at the creek. Hadn't been there since Jan. 3rd and what a difference in water clarity. The color is mocha brown with 9-10 inch visibility and areas where there was a gravel bottom are coated in a layer of boot sucking mud up to 6 inches deep.  Looking at the water data, on Ja...

No New Posts Help Identifying a Fisherman on Putah (Preview)
Hi everyone, I was taking some fly fishing pictures on the creek last November 9 and got some nice shots of a guy fishing there.  I am interested in entering one in a photo contest but need a release for the person in the shot.  I was hoping that he is a regular that follows this site or perhaps one of you know...

I know certain guides and anglers have been really successful swinging flies at putah. Not expecting any hand holding since I know many like to keep their putah tricks to themselves but curious if there are any tips or techniques related to swinging/stripping bigger flies at putah.

No New Posts Early Spawning Activity (Preview)
FYI, I’ve observed early activity with fish showing signs of spawning. Not just staging signs but actively playing chase and paired up. If you see fish doing big swirls or paired up in shallow water, move along to other spots.

The air is clean again, the fires are out and the steelhead will be coming up the rivers soon. Take a deep breath and smile at the sun.

I have been researching the technique, but I am still not sure if I should give it a shot. The rod I will be using is a 9‘ 5 weight and I am concerned I won’t be able to effectively cover water that is too far away to reach. Also, with the fast, deep runs, I am afraid the only way to get my fly down is with a big heavy...

No New Posts A thank you to some anglers (Preview)
When I was seven or eight years old, my parents planned a family trip to Yellowstone National Park. Already a fishing nut by then, I quickly found out that fly fishing was the way to catch trout there. I needed a fly rod to use on the trip. I begged my mother all summer long for something, anything. Eventua...

No New Posts Goobers galore (Preview)
Get to the creek at 5: 30, suit up and head on down. By 7;30 , the 1'st person showed up. By 9:00, there were two guys fishing across from me. By 10:00 there were the two guys across from me, one directly above me, three down about a hundred yards and three up in the first pool with more headed down from the park...

Solano Water Agency/ Solano Irrigation District will be lowering flows down to 45 CFS on Thursday and Friday so that they can remove the built up silt and weeds from the Putah South Canal. This is an annual operation that this year has been limited to two days instead of a week. Recommended to go elsewhe...

No New Posts Putah nymphing rig tips (Preview)
My last 2 trips have come up short, and I need some help/tips. I fished a 9ft 4x tapered leader and put on my first fly(wolly bugger or large nymph for weight). I put 2-3 small split shots above the first fly. I tied 12 inches of 5x to the bend of the hook and tied on a 2nd very small fly (wd 40, PT, etc). I used a wh...

It seems like I have been finding new bug hatches lately, and bigger bugs.  Has anyone else noticed it?

What flows do you all like to fish on Putah?  Personally, I prefer it when the flows are a bit higher - closer to 500 CFS.

No New Posts First time on the creek in over a month (Preview)
There's a lot more water!  Fished pretty hard today - landed one decent fish, one baby par, and lost 1 small guy - so generally unsuccessful.  But, it was awesome to be back on the water!  I've been too busy to fish lately and it sure is nice to get back out.  Hope some of you had more success than me today!

Have a Sage SFL 580 and the cork health is dwindling.  Could anyone point in the right direction for replacing cork on this old rod or whether its probable? Thanks

No New Posts Viable Flows? (Preview)
Hey Forum Folks! I am a newcomer to this discussion, as I have finally begun making visits to Putah with some measured success. I'm just curious... what's the CFS zone for "ideal fishing" on the creek, and when does it reach "utterly un-fishable?" I see that the current flow is pushing 680, but I don't k...

No New Posts To the two dudes at the #4 riffles late Monday afternoon (Preview)
I’m pretty sure that river etiquette is that when someone is tying up their rig while standing in front of a hole that you’re not supposed to show up, step up to that exact water and begin fishing that hole.Thanks,Kevin Even after suggesting that I was just planning on hitting that water, these two pol...

Anybody care to chime in on how the fishing has been the last couple of days? Are the Flows at their summer level yet? I looked at the charts but those things can be quite unreliable.

No New Posts Really? (Preview)
I caught a fish yesterday for maybe the third time. He came in really fast and I realized that I knew this guy. I let him loose as fast as I could ( thank Hod for barbless hooks ) , but it left me with a hollow feeling. I don't mind annoying the trout, but I'm not into abuse. Have any of you encountered the same si...

No New Posts Measure C ? (Preview)
I've read the language of it but most of it seems insignificant vs the amendments made since 1968. Besides most winery owners say early nineties was too late to put in vineyard  /winery on a slope.

I snagged 2 lines yesterday.  First, was about 50 feet of nylon/mono/fluoro.  I'm not sure what it was attached to as I had to break it off.  But, 50 feet worth?  What the heck is someone doing?  Anyway, next was at least 100 feet of braided line I think, almost like a dacron backing.  This was attached to...

While fishing today at access 5 the passenger's side window of my car was shattered. Time was somewhere in between 10:30am and 11:30 am. No fishing gear was taken, but a Black Backpack with my school supplies was taken. I am posting this as both a warning for anyone who leaves gear in their car. Be carefu...
