B.P. #016 - Jordan Romney - NorCal Fly Fishing Guide Covering the Truckee River, Yuba River, Feather River, Putah Creek and Little Truckee River

Jordan is a fly fishing guide who primarily fishes the Yuba River, Putah Creek, the Feather River, and the Truckee River. Jordan grew up in Winters, CA, so he has learned to fish on the Putah, which, while a smaller fishery, is accessible to people from Sacramento and San Francisco because of the close proximity. Although Jordan grew up fishing, he was the first to start seriously fly fishing in his family.


Listen in as Chad, Nick, and Jordan talk about strategies, fishing behavior, indicator preferences, and how flows impact Jordan’s most visited fisheries. Also hear Jordan’s thoughts on dams and their ecological impact. Stay tuned to hear how anglers modified their behavior in Putah Creek to stop the disruption of spawning behavior, and how you can help as well. Keep listening to hear the hilarious story of the first time Chad and Jordan went on a fishing trip together while the two were fishing Little Truckee River.
