Big changes on the Truckee River. Pretty much went from summer into winter in about 2 days. We got a little bit of snow, and are struggling to get out of the 20’s. Light cold snow. Good news is the storm door looks open. They should be warmer storms, with more moisture and higher snow levels. Look for flows to come up. The best winter fishing is always on the backs of warmer big storm cycles. 

Good, because flows have dropped. It’s low and cold on the Truckee River. Tough fishing. Excited to get some big storms rolling through. Push the flows up a bit, and we’ll have some good winter fishing for big fish. Good streamer fishing. We’ll get the ski resorts rolling too before thanksgiving. Good for everyone. It’s going to be interesting seeing how this strong La Niña year is going to affect our weather in Northern Ca. I’m ready, we got a new snow blower.
