Siskiyou County


Siskiyou County is a premier destination for conventional and fly fishing.

The McCloud River is famous for its redband trout, the Upper Sacramento River fore miles and miles of easy access fishing, and the Klamath and Scott River's for steelhead. 

The plethora of other rivers, smalls streams, reservoirs and alpine lakes draw many for sport and adventure fishing. 

Fishing in Siskiyou County will take you to places you have never been and surely be on you will relish and continue to visit time and time again. 

While many come during the spring and summer, Siskiyou County is still bountiful in its fall and winter fishing potential. 

With many alpine lakes becoming snow-packed for the winter, the Upper Sacramento River remains open to angling after the general trout season ends (catch and release only), and its abundant BWO hatches and streamer fishing opportunities can provide excellent fishing for those who keep an eye on flows.

The Ranch has been operated as a trophy trout catch-and-release fly fishing destination since 1993. Their sexually mature trout have spawned successfully every fall, and the huge wild rainbows and cool gin-clear water provide an incomparable stillwater flyfishing experience.

Those who have experienced Sugar Creek Ranch at its best over the last 20 years will recall the property's unique 114 acre landscape with its huge piles of river rock dug up during the gold mining days. Many of the eight picturesque ponds are hidden from view as small jewels in a rocky desert. The solitude and silence are very special.

The grounds are softened by the shade of large trees with a backdrop of rugged mountain views. A remarkable variety of wildlife calls the ranch home.

You will remember the year-round cool temperatures of the spring-fed waters as the perfect trout habitat.

Memories will flash over the vivid and varied personality of each pond. The big trout feeding during the early morning hours and late into the evenings are simply awe-inspiring. Our fish are sometimes monster-size but always are lively fighters.
