Get it…..

ANOTHER GRAPH!! I know how entertaining these are…I don’t exactly love them myself. But, they are the key to learning flows, to fish effectively. You can see the difference, day to day. It takes a few years to be able to see a graph and know in your mind’s eye what’s going on the water. I have learned to calibrate what a particular run looks like from my computer. Combine the ability to predict the weather and then, factor in the flows….and you are dangerous. Certain flows are best on some parts of the river and not others. Too deep or too shallow, I can see it from where I sit to post this. This information allows me to have a plan when I go to the water….not just go see! The Truckee fishes well between 300-500cfs. I teach the art of the fly….Reading the water, the cast, the menu, drift (presentation), and playing them to the net. The final difficulties to master, are where and when to go. And now you know…….

It is snowing ever so lightly right now. We got about an inch last night, which means I got some sleep for a change, instead of plowing. That means I will call a fish team 6 audible and see who can go fish today. We will have a couple windows this week. The river will stay in leveling mode. The high temps will be 30deg. Lows will be around 10 deg, That means little to no melting, to cause the river to change. See you on the water!
