Four Seasons Fly Fishing Reports

  • Fishing Report February 11, 2017

    Four Seasons Fly Fishing Feb 11, 2017 | 23:53 pm

    It has been awhile since my last report so I figured I better update.  The new year has brought record snow and water to the area.   Given the weather I have been super busy at Alpine and not getting much fishing done.   It is safe to say that government officials will now say we are not in a drought.  All flows are up except the Little Truckee between Boca and Stampede and that could change. Three things to know when trying to fish in our area after this Continue Reading

    I have returned from the Klamath Steelhead season.   The season was different than past years in that it was very wet instead of hot and sunny.  One of the wettest Octobers in recent history.  Great for the water and drought situation in California.  The Steelhead seems to like it as well.   Thanks to all of you that made it a success again this season.  My window on the Klamath is pretty short reservations for next season are available now. Back here the the Truckee area, it is transition Continue Reading

    The recent storm has really been great for the fishing statewide.  Fish love a fresh shot of water to get them going especially Steelhead.  Currently, I am guiding Steelhead on the Klamath River in northern California.  The Steelhead are starting to arrive on the wave of the recent rains.  I have had some excellent days here in the north state.  Been using many different fly fishing techniques to dupe the adult and half-pounders roaming the Klamath river.  Swinging traditional patterns on the floating line or very light tip has been Continue Reading

    It is transition time here in the Truckee Area.  Truckee/Tahoe saw a little bit of snow yesterday and that has given way to some cooler weather in the North Tahoe area.  Fishing on the Truckee has been pretty good despite the lower water again this fall.  Have also heard of some nice fish being caught out at Prosser Reservoir. As I normally do this time of the season I head up to the Klamath River to guide Steelhead for the month of October.  I have a few prime dates left Continue Reading

    Been a while since my last report.  We are into our fall routine around here and there are a few changes going on with the weather and flows.  First, we had our first dusting of snow on the mountain tops and not a drop of moisture in town.  Second, the flows in the area are being changed up a bit which is pretty typical for this time of year.  With the cooler weather water temps are perfect for many of the venues.   It would be nice to get a Continue Reading

    We made it through last weeks heat wave here in Truckee and conditions are holding up well given the fact we haven’t see rain in almost two months.  The “Dog Days” of summer are here!  Fish early or late.  Be prepared to try different tactics and use some stealth.  That white t-shirt your wearing isn’t helping you at all!  When the rivers are tough hit up Prosser and Stampede for some Smallmouth Bass action. Truckee **-*** The flows in town are dropping daily and at 65cfs with afternoon water temps Continue Reading

    Fishing conditions in the area are holding up very well.  Cool nights and not so hot days have been pretty nice to keep the water temps in the good zone on the Truckee River and  freestone streams of the area.   The Little Truckee is pumping some water down stream and the fish are digging the extra cover.  On the reservoirs the Smallmouth Bass are biting.   The fish have been seeing some action so time to adjust you game.  Sneak in and a make your first cast count cause Continue Reading

    Hope you had a great weekend.  The fishing in the area was super busy this past weekend.  I saw Anglers were checking out all the water we have to offer.  For those that like small streams they are in good shape now and will be for the next couple weeks.  Also, the tributaries to Lake Tahoe are open as of July 1st and are worth a look. Truckee **-*** The flows in town are up from the last report 198cfs and at Boca they are down to 429cfs with afternoon water Continue Reading

      The fishing in the Truckee Area is ON! Truckee **-*** The flows in town are at 150cfs and at Boca 454cfs with afternoon water temps 58-60 degrees.  BWO’s 14-16, Some PMD’s 14, and Caddis 14-16 are out and about.  The fishing has improved since last week but still switching between nymphing and dries.  Depending on the section you fish there may be some Green Drakes but, I have found them yet. Little Truckee***  The flow is 101cfs and I didn’t take a temp this time. It’s cold.  Plenty of bugs Continue Reading

    Early summer conditions are present here.  Great weather, few people, and the waters are in great shape.  The Truckee is just coming into shape and has been kicking out some solid fish.  Not numbers but, healthy beasts.  The LT is fishing well and we have had some good flows to flush out the goo.  It’s time to get up to Truckee and fish!  Check out some of my programs for the summer season. Hosted Montana Fly Fishing.  Still have two slots available on the Montana Trip Aug 14th-17th.  Hitting the Continue Reading
