Headed to the McCloud River, (Fowlers Camp) on the weekend of Oct 10th. used to go there as a kid for 2 weeks every summer lots of Fish, Even had the opportunity to catch & Release a Dolly Varden or two, headed there with my Mom & Dad, the wife & I fished Lakin Dam on our Honeymoon :) in 2002, Some nice Brook Trout.
Any help is appreciated.

Try down stream from lower falls to the Hearst property line.

Last time I was there 1 1/2 years ago I had good luck with the bubble fly combo.

Clear bubble -> swivel -> 2.5 feet leader -> gold bead nymph

Throw up stream and let float down.
Got fish at upper falls all the way down past lower. Might have just been the right combo at the right time, but sure made my friends jealous. ;)

Hey King-J! I'm going camping this weekend also but I'll be fishing the Upper Sac. in Castella. Hope you get some nice ones!
