After four days of heavy winds finally they have laid down. We should continue the good spring fishing we've been experiencing in the greater Truckee-Tahoe-Reno area on the Truckee River. There still is a descent snow pack up top, but so far we've been having a gradual melt. The river has been staying in the good, fishy-flow stage. Flows are about 300 cfs below town, over 500 cfs in the Hirsch, and that pretty much stays near the same down through Nevada. The big blue wing hatches have died down in the desert, but have started here in California. We have some march browns out, and still lots of skwalas on the warm afternoons. If we get a nice warm week of weather the march browns should come out in droves. The streamer fishing has been good for most folks, but the nymphers have been getting 'er done. There are a few caddis mixed in, but I don't get on that tip till about June. We will experience some heavy flows eventually, probably in the next three weeks, but I'm not to worried about it this year.

On a side note: SPRING FEVER CLINICS, will be back, more this week.
