Was on the creek Thanksgiving Day Morning early. Got a few strikes but nothing hooked. Was using an egg, with a 4D40 as the dropper. The problem was around 7:30ish it was so crowded that it was like salmon fishing. No edicate what so ever from a few folks. Oh well thought there might be less crowds since it...

No New Posts Dry flies on Putah Today (Preview)
Made it to the island around noon today and started nymphing.  Nothing to speak of for about an hour worth of labor.  Noticed some risers on the other side of the bank and then saw what they were feeding on.  Light cream colored mayflys? Anyways, since I wasn't having any success nymph...

Yesterday I hooked a super pig.  The fish dragged me down the creek for about 50 yards for what seemed like 20 minutes before I finally yanked so much I finally lost it.  I nearly had it to net 3 or 4 times,  but i couldn't land it.  I would estimate the fish to be 22 inche...

  It was my unerstanding they were not going to raise the flow of Putah until Thursday, yet I see it is back up to 131.  Is this correct?  I was hoping to fish before it came up again.   Anyone in the know?

I was at the 128 Bridge Sunday a.m., had the stretch above and below the bridge to myself for a few hours.  I then traveled downstream to the last pool before the crick widens.  After a bit, I heard a singular "snap" in the bushes behind me; I was instantly "a lert" (living in mountains m...

I fished for a few hours (10am t0 1pm) and did OK. I was in that stretch of moving water below the resort. Landed one 12" rainbow and had two on that were in the 20" range. Alas, they broke off. The hot fly was a very small zebra-like nymph (sorry, I'm not good at remembering specific names - this was a fly that...

Hi All: First post since the new forum.  Much better this way.  Was getting out of control with all the absurdly angry and pointless posts on the previous forum. Anyway, fished from 3:00 til dusk yesterday (sunday) and was blown away at how low the water was.  Nonetheless, found...

First of all, thanks to Greg for giving us this site.  Yesterday was my first time on Putah Creek and I had a difficult time.  Early, I fished below # 3 and didn't see any sign of life, seriously.  Moved above # 3 and there were several fish jumping all around a deeper po...

What method can I employ to consistently sink my tippet while dry fly fishing?  Nothing I have tried so far has worked with any consistency.

  I have not been out in a couple weeks, I had a proceedure on my spine which has kept me homebound.  But I would like to hear some other reports of success or defeat on the board.  Hope to get out there next week or so, if me back allows it. Keith

No New Posts FALL/WINTER Conditions (Preview)
Having never fly fished Putah during the late Fall and Winter months, can someone post a generalized outline on the conditions.  I know that flows go way down, making wading better, however, what other changes can I expect?  How do the fish react to the changing seasons?...Do winter stor...

I fished Putah Creek only once before. I spent most of the time driving around and looking at the river and trying to find possible fishing spots. I ended up fishing a riffle around at access #3 and I caught a 8 incher and a 10 incher. I see mostly long slow pools separated by fast riffle sections. Wher...

No New Posts Fox Poopah (Preview)
Quick question for the Putah panel:   What is the best way to drift a Fox Poopah.  It is clear that this is an important fly for Putah, but I have never had so much as a tug using one.  Under a weight?  Drifted deep? Up in the film?  Should I attach a dropper? Thanks

I tried my go to fly in N California and SW Oregon, a Yellow Jacket fly, size 6 that hangs down about 12 to 18" of water. A...

I spent about 6 hours yesterday above the bridge and below the dam. It was one of those Putah Days with fish jumping out of the water while chasing something and with big fish below chasing something. The something wasn't what I offered from standard little Putah Creek flies to terrestials to pupa...

Made it to the water around 2:30 this afternoon. Initially tried the big hole below the staircase. There were 2 cars parked upstream from the lower access and I was hoping to have the hole to myself. I crossed in the fast water below the big hole and found another flyfisherman already there. I'm und...

Well, it was such a nice day, I decided to go out again today.  My fishing partner and I had a pretty good day, landing a couple of dozen fish between us.  What made it interesting is that I landed fish on streamers, nymphs, and dries.  Most of the fish were in the 13 to 14 inch range, but I di...

I appreciate the posts from KHB and Otter.  They were very informative.  I went out this morning rigged for both nymphs and streamers.  I fished for a while with a Fox's poopah and red WD40 dropper and managed to hook one fish.  I then switched to stripping a woolly bugger and the...

October is a great time to high stick for fish.  Tonight I fished the upper bridge for the first time in at least 18 months.  The crowds at the bridge have always kept me away, but I pulled in and there were only a couple of cars in the lot.  I fished about fifty feet below the bridge for abou...
