No New Posts Identifying Wild and Stocked Fish (Preview)
I notice that many posts enumerate the number of wild vs stocked fish caught in a particular outing, and I am interested in learning how one can confidently distinguish between the two.  It isn't difficult if the fish is quite large or quite small. but those mid-range ones are a challenge. ...

No New Posts Shad (Preview)
On occasion my father told me that when the weather gets like this and the dam is spewing water from the culvert, large schools of shad get caught in the the vortex and hit the creek above the bridge, if you are a shad guy, it might be worth heading up above the bridge with some shad gear, and poke a few of thos...

I went up to Putah today just to see how bad it was, and yes, it looks bad.  I happened to follow Bono as he checked out some of the areas, so he will probably have a detailed report later.  I did post some pictures on Kiene's message board, so those of you too far away to get to the creek can check...

To Greg or any other creek expert. What can we expect from the creek after so much rain and high flows? Will we have to wait for awhile to let the creek settle and let the flows go down? How long might that take? I'm new to the creek and I don't know it real well. Is it just a few day's or longer? Any commen...

No New Posts Flows are way up this morning (Preview)
I just noticed that the flows had increased substantially this morning from 75 to 154 CFS.  Is this an indication that water is being released from the dam (e.g. the glory hole has overflowed)? My brother and I were considering a trip out to tomorrow afternoon, but I am worried that it might be b...

I was tying some streamers today, and as i went to place them in my streamer box, i couldn't find it. After looking all over the house i have concluded that it was somehow left at Putah Creek. I fished there on christmas day and did pull a wooly bugger out of the box at my car before heading to the stream. I bel...

No New Posts Spawners (Preview)
Fished up by the bridge on Saturday morning. It was very crowded, with probably 10 guys in the hole just below the bridge. There were a number of guys, probably 6, tossing flies for the spawners sitting at the end of the run. Guys would just stand there for an hour casting for just one spawning fish till it...

Hello to all- I am a new member to this sight and have enjoyed reading your postings. I'm sure your advise will help me this weekend on the putah. I just moved back to San Mateo after living/fishing the last 12yrs in Oregon. I am going to miss it very much (the fishing is superb), but look fo...

In the market for a pontoon. But I keep hearing how great kayaks are. Can any of you share your thoughts and experiences on these two. Areas fished would be rivers, such as the american or yuba and obviously lakes and ponds. Thanks, The Sultan of Sod.

I went to Putah on tuesday. Didn't see anyone hook up but heard stories of alot of hook ups but only landing a few. I was unable to get a hook up at all. Have been following the forum and used those tactics but nada! Fish were where I was fishing but couldn't hook up to save my life. Was seeing splashy rises, so...

I got out on the water around 10am. Just fished around the bridge. Two small bows on olive WD-40's about size 16. I was on my way up to Nevada City. Fished along the Yuba on the way home. On the yuba, the fish were taking size 8 golden stone nymphs in about 14"-22" of water. It was really exciting to watch the f...

It's been three weeks since I have been out to Putah, but managed a couple of hours this morning.  I hooked one nice one on a black zebra and a smaller one on a red micro egg, but both came unbuttoned.  I kept working the same area and landed a beautiful 21 inch rainbow, only the second fish over 2...

I spent most of the day out yesterday on the Creek.  Not too much luck around the island at #5, with the exception of a 10" rainbow holding in some remarkably shallow pocket water. The highlight of the day was an 18" native rainbow just below #3 that keyed in on a black zebra midge dropper (tungste...

I lost a huge bow yesterday after he pulled away at my line for about 30-40 miniutes or so. It realy wasn't realy a fight. I just hung on while he looked for different holes and cover to swim to. After a hundred yard trip downstream he finaly found some overhang and got into it. I felt a bit sill...

  Took a friend out to the creek yesterday, got out there about 12:30, or 1pm, and boy it was very slow up until about 3:30, then picked up a little.  The creek was lower than I have ever seen it.  What made my day was catching a little 9" rainbow, probably the most beautiful trout...
