Rolling right into summer on the Truckee River.

Thing is though, we still have a mid-April snowpack. However, it does look like monsoon season is over. It’s rained every day for the last 2 weeks. Just big puffy Simpson’s clouds and perfect weather now.

As far as the snowpack. I think the water will stay up into the first week of July. Hard to say is the water will mud up or not with hot weather. Right now, clarity is actually really really good.

So now that I can wear shorts it feels a little more like summer in Tahoe. Usually, we’re thinking about green drakes and things like that. With the water so high, ain’t gonna be much fishing on top until she comes down. Flows have came back up to 3k here in the Hirsch, as they’re dumping water out of Donner Lake. Remember, there’s 5 lakes that contribute to the flows of the Truckee River and they are all full.

I have 3 spots left for the Tight Line Nymph Clinic on Saturday June 15th. Get some!
