Everyone was thinking we would have high flows all summer. But warm sun has had it’s effect…..The water master is holding back water to maintain lakes full, for the first time in 4+ years. The tribs are down to quiet levels and still cold. Inlets to lakes are good at dusk.    The Truckee has two different personalities right now. The upper section is lower and warmer…65 deg.  The section below Boca is cooler 62+ but is getting a tad warmer each week. Flows are very clear and so the fish hunker down during the day…Early and later is best….some hatches at dusk, with some surface activity…Fish have been sought by numerous anglers for several months…They have a spooky attitude by now..We increase our possibilities if we are sneaky. Don’t just walk up to the water….. Offer good food forms in a perfect drift……then, be gunfighter fast. Sweep set at the slightest quiver of change in the behavior of your indy. The fish suspect bigger offerings by now I think. I mainly hook up on the little dropper fly. A soggy hopper in pocket water is worth a try….Enjoy your summer….two months left before the cold returns….
