    Well it looks like the big water is here a little earlier than last season.  Not to worry you can still catch fish just got to change your tactics a bit.  The fish aren’t super happy fight the current all day so look for them to be in the softer areas near the banks or on the inside of turns.  The water now is cold and there is tons of food being dislodged, the fish don’t have to do much to get a bite to eat.  With that said, slow Continue Reading

    Better late than never!  Winter showed up Big time last week with over 70″ of snow at Alpine in just 4 days.  Skiing has been really good and this was a cold storm with only about 6″ of water content.   More snow is forecast for the end of this week as well.  Great for our summer water flows. It has been cold so again ski in the morning and fish in the Afternoons.  With all of this new snow access to both the Truckee and Little Truckee will be Continue Reading

    Well, winter has yet to really show up.  If  you were outside today you might disagree, cold and windy with some light snow flurries that reminded me its not spring yet.  Not to worry spring will be here again in a few days.  Fishing on the Truckee and Little Truckee has been good.  Lots of Little Winter Stones, Midges, Sqwallas, and BWO’s out and about.  So are the anglers!  This time of year go skiing on the groomers in the morning and head to the river in the afternoon.  With Continue Reading

    Happy Black Friday!  Conditions in the area are prefect for getting out and wetting a line.  The weather is in the mid 50’s and there is water in all of the creeks and rivers from last week’s storm event.  Looks like we are headed for another cool down and maybe more snow.  Time to get outside and fish.  For those looking to get something for their fisher person I do sell Gift Certificates for Full-day and Half day trips. A reminder that we are in the Winter Fishing Regulations Season!  That Continue Reading

    Welcome to Fall!  Crisp mornings, sunny days, and no crowds.  The best time to be in our area. The fishing has be really good the last couple weeks.  Look for the flows to get jacked around a bit as the reservoirs are being dropped for winter.  Still some bugs coming off throughout the day and be getting some good windows of Dry Fly fishing.  On the other hand, fishing big streamers below Boca inflow can be pretty good as well. A bit of transition time here as I move up Continue Reading

    I am back from my Fly Fishing Vacation in Wydaho.  Do to some poor planning on my part we ended up going to the Zone of Totality for the recent Eclipse.  Everything worked out fine and the fishing at times was as good as it gets for dries and streamers.  The Eclipse was cool as well. While I was away the afternoon thunderstorms have kept things in pretty good shape for this time of year.  We are in the “Dog Days 0f Summer”  but, it is not as “Doggy” as Continue Reading

    Last week’s thunderstorms and rain did wonders for the fishing.  Water temps were held down to nice fishable levels well into the afternoons.  Dry Fly action is still good both early and late.  Caddis and Mayflies are making up the bulk of the bugs and the Little Yellow Stones quickly fading away.  Streamer action has started to slow as well.  Although not as warm as the last few seasons we are approaching the “dog days of summer”.  Good time to explore the high country or visit the Smallmouth Bass at Continue Reading

    Dry Fly time!  The fish are looking up pretty much everywhere you would want to fish.  Dries and Dry Dropper rigs are key.  Water temps are moving up so follow the temps for best fishing.  It’s okay you can put the indicator rig down for awhile.  Now would be a good time to try Tenkara. Truckee River *** The flows are 148cfs in town and 459cfs at Boca.  Water temps are currently coming up and hitting 64 degrees in the afternoon.  A cool down would be kinda nice.  The fish are Continue Reading

    I am now offering Tenkara Fly Fishing as a product option.  To book a trip give me a call 530-386-0525. It is now the time to be here fly fishing.  The river flows are settling down and the water temps are still in the good zone.  All but the higher elevation venues are open.  The fire in Farad is not affecting us at all.  No smoke and we can still access the water above Hirshdale. Truckee River***  The flows are 356cfs in town and 821cfs at Boca.  Mid-day water temps are Continue Reading

    Summer has arrived!  Since my last report the roads have started to open up and you can now drive out Jackson Meadows road and down to Milton Reservoir.  The roads and Campgrounds look like they have taken a beating from the flooding this winter.  I imagine that the Forest Service will need some time get things fixed up there.  You can get to Milton just a little rougher than the past. Flows on the Truckee at least have been bumping up and down and, to some extent, on the Little Continue Reading
