Good winter fishing happening.

Like really good. We had a few great streamer days, but the dry fly fishing has been where it’s at- on the lower Truckee River in Nevada.

Yep, I said dry fly fishing. Don’t say that a whole hell of a lot on the Truckee River, but there have been some days where it’s simply been epic. Of course some days are better than others. Wind can be a problem. If you can get a good windless afternoon you will see pods of fish rising in every run. Blue wing olives. Sure, most fish average on the smaller size, but we have stuck a few over 20,” on a dry, that’s really good. It’s great to have boat and access the good zones, but you can hit a lot wade fishing too.

So things look to get warm this week. It’s been mild up here. Reno is going to get over 60 this week, was 55 here in the Hirsch the other day. Winter is not over though. Still a long ways to go if you live about 5000 feet.

The Streamer Clinic on Feb. 8th still has some spots. The 1st is sold out. Go niners.
