Episode Show Notes

Published February 17th, 2020


In this episode, we chat with NorCal guide Jordan Romney and his lifelong pursuit of trout on Putah Creek and the Yuba River. Overall things are looking excellent for the 2020 season.

We’ll also discuss priceless guide tips for mastering each body of water, such as fly selection, casting techniques, river access and the one thing you absolutely don’t want to come across when fishing Putah Creek.

Jordan also goes deep into the background of turning Putah into a designated wild trout fishery, and the volunteer river closer during the rainbow spawn that has helped this tailwater thrive.
