Great last week on the Truckee River.

We had a great clinic this weekend. Look for some more in the future.

Nice big spring flows. Flows have dropped just a bit the last few days. Mainly it’s just what they’re doing with the reservoirs, not so much the run off that’s making the flows. If you noticed Boca is low as they are working on the dam.

Yeah, good spring fishing, prefect weather, just not a better time to be up here with all the green and not too many people around. The birds are chirping, and the deer are prancing. I’ve been all over on the river and catching fish all over the river. Big and small. Got a few pushing 28″ last week. No joke, the Truckee River is legit.

So nymph up and streamer up. Waters gonna be big right into summer. Get used to it. Go explore the river a bit. These fish are shell shocked here in the Hirsch. Running your squirmy wormie where 10 dudes before you have is not gonna get you a fish. Remember, there’s a 106 miles of river.
