Sugar Creek Ranch is located at the confluence of Sugar Creek and the Scott River in the Scott Valley of northern California's Siskiyou County.
The year-round spring water flowing through the ponds originates in the Trinity Alps and the Salmon Mountains. The "gin-clear" water and abundant natural food allow us to offer the HOTTEST rainbow trout fly fishing you will ever experience!
We only allow FLY RODS with barbless hook imitations.
While wet flies work well year round, the dry fly action of summer is fantastic! Common hatches include midges, callebaetis, trico, BWO, PMD, caddis, damsels, dragons and little yellow stone flies. Throw in common terrestrials, (hoppers, ants, spiders, beetles, cicada), and you've got dry opportunities galore! For a terrific guide to fishing Sugar Creek Ranch, click here!
