McCloud River Professional Review and Guide
"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."
