Northern California's Sacramento River system is very large and diverse. It is unique in the fishing opportunites it provides for a variety of types of water.

Visit the Fly Fishing Connection: "This fabled California River begins its meandering journey screaming out of the Trinity Divide west of Mount Shasta and ends under the Golden Gate Bridge. The lower portion of the river from Keswick Dam above Redding clinging to Interstate Highway #5 is big and wide. Fly fishers can expect peak season water flows up to 80,000 feet per second! Popular fly fishing sections get busy when the flows drop to 5-8,000 cubic feet per second."
More on the Upper Sacramento RIver from the Fly Fishing Connection "The upper river is widely known for outstanding dry fly opportunities. Pockets full of usual terrestrials like hoppers, ants, bushy looking March Brown type flies score well on warm days. September through October is dry fly heaven. Water begins to slow into deep pools and evening morning hatches are almost as spectacular as they were in the late 1980's. Those who have mastered classic short lining."
Read about the Sacramento River Watershed from The River Pirate: "From the high country of the Trinity Divide, the headwaters of the Sacramento River include numerous tributaries. Its three main forks stride down from alpine slopes gaining girth and grandeur as streams and creeks converge into it. At the Sacramento River Delta, the watershed empties 31 percent of California's total water runoff into the San Francisco Bay. "
There is nothing like fishing downtown Redding, literally. Living in Redding has so much to offer. With the Sacramento River trail meandering from Shasta Dam through town to the Sacramento River flowing beneath your feet as you stroll across the Sundial Bridge, an architectural masterpiece of Santiago Calatrava.

There are very few things finer in life than spending a day on the Sacramento River Fly Fishing.
The Sacramento River starts
its journey in Mount Shasta, California from a natural underground
spring and flows down into Shasta Lake. From there it flows
over the largest dam in California to create the Lower
Sacramento River where fishing is excellent all year long.
While most coastal and un-dammed rivers are blown out from rain
very rarely does the Sacramento River between Redding and Anderson
do so. "Salmon - Trout - Steelhead Magazine" rated
the Sacramento River "Best Wild Trout Fishing in California".
It is not uncommon to hook a 24" trout with the average
fish being 14-18".
Fall through January; salmon are spawning. Enjoy egg drifting with a nymph or tandem eggs for catching trout. Try to get your egg through the salmon redds if you can avoid the wild spawning King Salmon you are sure to hook up on a beautiful wild Rainbow Trout.
The Spring and Summer is dry fly time. Greg will do nymphing and dry flies. For the spin fisherman it is a great time of year to pull plugs or side-drift. The Sacramento river system is truly a diamond and your fishing guide Greg Hector will make sure it is a trip you will never forget. Whether you are looking for a professional fly fishing lesson or are a seasoned fisherman yourself seeking the ultimate thrill of landing a giant wild rainbow trout or steelhead, Hook'em Hecky's is the fly fishing guide service that you need.
