This river runs cold and clear with water born from the glaciers of Mount Shasta and Lake McCloud. At times the glacial silt imbues the water column with a handsome green tint (much like you’d find in a classic steelhead stream). If you hear that the McCloud’s “running a bit green,” grab your fly rod, because the fishing may be magical! A note for the fly fishing newcomer to the McCloud: The river’s quirks can be tough to learn, but once you pay your dues you’ll be hooked forever! Types of Fish: Rainbow and brown trout. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
