With such a great variety of water to access, Sugar Creek Ranch is a Stillwater angler’s dream come true. All of the lakes and ponds can be fished from the shore, while the larger lakes also are wonderful for float tubes, pontoon boats, or even kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. Thanks to the individual character of each lake, you will encounter unique angling situations as you move from one body of water to the other. Some lakes provide excellent dry fly sight fishing while others might require a sinking line and large streamer presentation.

Price will be $680 per person which includes lodging and fishing access. Meals and beverages are BYO. $340 deposit is required at time of sign-up.

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.

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 tailing piles of river rock dug up from the adjacent Scott River during the gold mining days. When the gold miners broke through the water table, these eight picturesque ponds – mostly hidden from view as small jewels in a rocky desert – started bubbling up from newly exposed cold-water springs. This cold, gin-clear water provides ideal habitat for the large rainbow trout that call these lakes home. Sugar Creek itself winds through the property and each lake, further infusing cool, oxygen infused water into the ponds, as well as spawning habitat for the resident rainbows. Set at 3,000 feet, the ranch remains relatively cool in the summer, the lakes remain ice-free and fishable all winter, and the climate and fishing is simply majestic during the spring and fall season.
