Last day of a fishy month.

We humans are distracted by clocks and calendars. The fish we chase, and the bugs they chase, are not. I’ve been trying to calculate this variable for fifty years. The first twenty years were a bust mostly….. The last 30 were on the Truckee river, and I have been watching very closely. Factor in climate change, and predicting when to go fish is even more challenging than it used to be….. The only way to know what is going on with the players, is to go almost every day. So, that’s what I do, 300 days or so a year. Best job a guy like myself can have. Right now the Skwallas are almost done, and the March Brown Mayflies are starting to pop. They almost missed March. Seeing some Caddis, and BWO’s are happening with the help of a few clouds recently. The flows on the river are already coming down, a surface spring that I judge drought by, is already near a trickle. Pretty fishy out there right now, better go fish…….
