We went from summer to fall in what felt like two days. Ah, the crispness of fall. Thought I was going to die last week in the sun, today, had the pataguchi on-all day. The Truckee River in both states is producing fish. Nymphs, streamers, and sometimes drys are getting 'er done. October caddis, and baetis are the main bugs. Streamers, well, they can be good this time of year. This is the time browns make the big push to spawn. Stay committed. The Truckee is not the best streamer producing river. I like my streamers with lots of bunny and a bit of flash on a sink tip. Put your nymph rigs all over. They're not just in the fast summer stuff anymore. Some nice stormy weather will put fish on top mid-day. Have your favorite blue wing patterns ready. It has been, and will be cold in the mornings anywhere on the Cali side of the river now. Here in Hirschdale we usually have fog to the sun burns it off around mid-morning, be prepared. This is Blake with a fatty.
