Week of March 5-12

Hey everyone ; I just want to keep this blog current , Putah is just about 4.5 miles from Montecello Dam to the last access that really fishable access 5. So when we get heavy rain, it really silts up the river and then fishing is tougher. It'll clear up a few days after the rain stops as the water clears. On another note, the fish are still pretty tired from the spawn; so you might want to wait until later in the month to get out there if you want a good fight from the fish and to help preserve the healthy fishery of Putah. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or you would like to book a trip for later this month. 707-294-4738 Richard Loft #tofishistolive

Fishing Report for 2/25/16 through 3/3/16

Hey everyone ; Just checking in with todays report . Me and Rusty, my dog & fishing companion,   took a ride up to Putah Creek to get out of the Napa Valley for a few hours. I wanted to see how the creek is doing on this first official day back to more normal fishing following the most active period of the spawn. Right off the bat, I was helping an older guy who was a first timer, and bam! We landed a 20 plus-inch rainbow trout on a midge pattern that I tie.  It was a real beauty but I let her go as fast as I could, as she was still a bit tired from the spawn season. If you want to hit the creek before the El Nino rains come in, give me a call. Richard Loft 707-294-4738
