More rain and snow.

Good for fishing, not much fun for anything else.

I’ve been mostly down on the Nevada side of the Truckee River just to get out of the rain, that, and I have the whole place to myself. Good solid fishing. Normally, I’d be done floating the river down there around this time just because it’s too hot, not this year.

Flows have remained steady this week. Still high, but not as high the last few months. Water is very clear here, and just a little off color the lower you go down the river.

So on the fishing front, not much has changed. Bring a rain jacket, pack some streamers, and fish some nymphs. Seems like the trouts are more keyed in on the hatching bugs now, and not the worms and eggs and things. Think march browns, green drakes, golden stones, beatis, and pmd nymphs. This is a really great time to throw streamers. The water is a little warmer than a few months ago and we have good overcast, mainly low pressure conditions. Getting one fish on a streamer is worth 10 on the bobber rig.

Gonna have a tight line nymph clinic on June 15th.
