It's hot, 94 here in the Hirsch, hot for us mountain folks, 100 in Reno. Get out there early. If you do, you will be blessed with trouts. Since Tuesday, a little bit more cold tailwater is coming out of Boca, but the majority is coming from Tahoe making water temps in the unhealthy range for trout in the afternoons. To top that off it's been well over 90 here for the last week. Like I said, start early, give the fish a break in the afternoons. They don't need your fly in their mouths in warm water. Caddis, crays, stones, and sallys have been getting the job done. Look for the pocket water, or the very heads of runs. Been lots of smiles out there this week on the Truckee River.
