Spring has sprung…..

A day ago the Truckee peaked at close to 1450cfs. It has dropped to 950 today. Water color is green mostly with a pinch of tan. It looks big but fishy. This is the time I wait for every year. So, now that it’s time to fish, are you ready? The cliche is to fish those low placid sections for risers. I used to feel the same way……Now, I seize the day and fish while it’s good. Big water makes the fish feel protected by lots of cover. Secondly, there is a bunch of food scoured up for them to eat. A lot of types to choose from…..Crayfish, nymphs, worms….and more, Don’t get hung up on what to fish….GO FISH! I am available to teach with a bigger stick, and help get a spey cast going. In addition I can help to figure out how deep and how much more weight to use. Give a call if you are ready for the next level on the Truckee.
