The day begins…
You receive the call from your buddy making sure your game face is on and wide awake. The worries you had the night before are left sleeping in the bed next to the wife. The morning air is brisk inside your lips as your ride approaches, packed down with the necessary essentials to make sure “Walter”… gets to the bank. The drive is long and weary, but the anticipation of what lies in the deep keeps your eyes wide and sharp as a tack. The rattle from the tackle box, on the unpaved road, is almost melodic and hypnotizing. As fantasies drift into your consciousness of the 9 pound water hog, running the line into a deafening screech, your buddy rolls down the passenger side window. The sound of the river bringing you back to reality. “We’re here.” he says. You grab your best friend in the entire world; a 7ft, medium heavy action, Mitchell’s combo rod and reel setup. It never cost you an arm and a leg and it’s never let you down when it was time to make one more cast. Your friend has decided to bring his trusty Shakespeare fly fishing rod. Equipped with a brilliantly tied nymph. Spider Wire line. The competition… present. The morning… just breaking over the cusp of the mountain tops. The fishing hole… A secret amongst friends.

You toss out your first cast, skipping it across the top of the water. It lands directly in between two boulders angled with the perfect ambush setup. Walter misses by inches. You retrieve your spinner and with one smooth motion bring the tip of your pole back into optimal firing position. Just as you let a cast go that was so prestigious that Canadian snipers would raise their glasses to a toast in your honor, your buddy shouts “FISH ON.” Walter breaches, displaying a magnificent specimen. A German brown you and your friends have been catching for a couple years, getting bigger with every trip to the water’s edge. Insisting on returning him back into the wild, you take out your trusty Kodak because without a picture, all you caught was a phantom fish. The smile on your face displayed when the fishing is all said and done is ecstatic and ready to go out and do it all over again next weekend.

About Randy Doughty
Owner/ Guide
Randy invented Two Patent Pending Products the Invisible Strike Indicator to Fish & the Original Knot Pick Tool the quickest way to undo those unwanted wind knots. He came up with the ideas after guiding a couple years in 2004 & not able to find a good Strike Indicator. One that would last with day in & day out use, which lasts longer than any other yarn indicator on the market. One that holds up more weight, & cast better, best of all they catch more fish! One that is made of Top of the Line products such as Maxima Line, The World’s Leader in Fishing Line, and Top of the line Poly Yarn, etc.. Randy Has been fishing with Maxima Line for the Past 25 Years. He recommends Maxima Lines for all types of fishing conventional or fly fishing. It is simply the best on the market today.

His Knot pick tool is simple but revolutionary, it saves time on the water & saves money, being able to untangle those wind knots instead of replacing your leader, saves time & money, just untangle the knot. Don’t replace your leader & tie at least 3 to 4 knots with flies, only untangle 1 knot, then your back in the water quicker. If your line is in the water more than it is out of the water, you will catch more fish. That’s why we all are out there, is to catch fish & have lots of good memories, & lasting dreams not to get frustrated. His handcrafted, family made in the USA, Knot Pick Tools & Invisible Strike Indicators is available at our Online Store & soon to be available at leading Outfitters & Sporting Goods across the USA.

Hope you enjoy these products and more from Tightline Connection, Randy has more products for the future, and he is always coming up with new ideas for products with his family.

Thank You

Lower Sacramento River – Full Day Tour
Northern California’s Sacramento River is a huge, diverse and unique system of both water types and fishing opportunities. Located about three miles north of the city of Redding, the water referred to as the Lower Sacramento emerges cold and deep from below Keswick Dam. For about 25 miles this river is considered to be one of the finest wild rainbow trout fisheries on the west coast. For successful anglers they have to think about how the changing flows might effect the fish, as well as access for fishing. A little knowledge and planning can produce impressive results.

The first thing about this magnificent river is, there is a lot less of it. Depending on the year, flows from beneath Keswick Dam will drop from up to 104,727 gallons down to 37,402 gallons. What had once been a drift boat fishery transforms into a wader-friendly river allowing almost limitless access. The Sacramento River above the Deschutes Bridge is managed as spawning grounds for Chinook salmon. During the cooler months the river is host to many thousands of huge, ocean-bright salmon building redds, or nests, on every suitable shallow gravel bar in the river.

1 Full Day Trinity River – Full Day Tour
The Trinity River that flows 110 miles from the dam below the Lewiston Lake until it joins the Klamath River at Weitchpec is one of Californias best fishing rivers. Both the lower trinity, and the upper trinity, have excellent rainbow trout, some Cohos and large brown trout. The lower trinity also has a good run of half pounder steelhead in the summer.

The middle Trinity River from Lewiston Lake to Del Loma has great runs of steel head, Chinook salmon, rainbow trout, some Cohos and large brown trout. The river runs along highway 299 and other roads between Lewiston dam supplements the wild Chinook, Coho salmon, and steelhead in this river.

The Lewiston dam moderates the flow into this section of the trinity so it is the first part to clear. Most say fishing is best two days after a heavy rain in the area. As with other rivers, fishing is best between the high water and low, clear water. The mile and a half from the Lewiston Dam to the Old Lewiston bridge are catch and release fly fishing with barbless hooks only. This area is good fishing for rainbow trout, juvenile steelhead and some brown trout.

The lower trinity from Del Loma to Weitchpec has good shore access and frequent drift boat launches. It runs through Willow Creek, then continues along through the Hoopa Indian Reservation to Weitchpec. It is a popular white water rafting river but has several falls and rapids for above the skill level of most anglers.

Del Loma to below Grays Falls has a few short sections with relatively calm water suitable for anglers, but it is mostly left to shore anglers and thrill rafters. Deep gorges with only intermittent launch and take out points below willow creek have good fishing for the experienced boater. The three-mile drift at Del Loma is the only part of this river that is fishing from a boat. Anglers can park in a turnout of the highway, hike to the river, find a suitable pool and fish, which is a great for shore anglers. Full Day Trips only $425.00 for 2 People. 8 to 10 hour trips depending on seasons.
