I’ve heard the fish on the Truckee don’t have high retention rate….
Maybe they aren’t shocking the crap out of fish enough to know.
But, we have been hooking the cutest juvenile Rainbows lately.
(Not telling where though……)
Feels like the river is coming back from the drought.
It’s still a little slow mid-day, with no bugs in the seine…..
But near dawn and at dusk fish are more active, due to bugs being more active then….
Midges are one of the effective flies.
A few PMDs, and Baetis a-flyin’……
Hoppers in the afternoon once the wind comes up.
Lots of critters moving around.
Nights are cooler……………
Won’t be long now…..
Life is beautiful………
I cant believe I’ve found where you’ve been hanging after 30 years with no tracks to follow. Think the last time we fished together was on the San Juan… toooo long ago. Hold me a couple days after the 1st of year!
Your blog posts are excellent, well written, concise and succinct. Each entry paints a crisp picture that looks a lot like trout bum heaven. I’m planning to make some tracks to Truckee myself and throw some flies with you… can’t wait to catch up. I better make a list and the vice out.
Hi Jim! It was really GREAT meeting you on the Truckee this past weekend! Thanks for helping to make my already great day even better (every day is great when you’re fly fishing!). Brett and I got skunked on the Little Truckee (spent the afternoon watching those monsters gobble up bugs, just not OUR flies). Boy do I have a Fish Story for you! So, we are looking forward to getting in touch with you and learning the real way to fish the Truckee, Little Truckee and other secret spots. I already of our mud on order! We WILL be in touch! Lisa
