What a great September for fly fishing on the Truckee River.

Little glitch in the system on the first week of the month, with the heat and the fire. Now it feels more like late October, not September.

We had a good soaker, heavy rain here in Truckee. It hardly every rains like this in September here. What a blessing. It couldn’t have come at a better time. The Mosquito Fire was pushing hard, and everything else was bone dry. Man, what a relief.

Needless to say the Truckee River, is fishing very, very well. Flows are still up out of Boca, about perfect, and the whole river from Boca/Hirschdale, on down is fishing. Even out East on the lower Truckee River, in the Nature Conservancy. The water has come up down there to fishable flows, and cooled considerably. A bit muddy now, but that will clear shortly. I’ll get on it this week. Flows are very low above Boca/ Glenshire dr, etc. Keep that in consideration if you make the drive up here.

It’ll get warm again, but Truckee probably won’t see another 80 degrees day until late spring next year. Enjoy the Indian summer coming next week. Fall don’t last long.
