Alright, looks like we have turned the corner on summer. Sunny and warmer for the next several days. Should see the Truckee come up some with heat and still a bit of snow in the higher elevations to melt off. Setting up for a great season here. Ants started flying today!
Still have room on the Montana Trip Aug 14th-17th.
Offering 301 classes in conduction with Roseville Orvis on June 11th and July 16th.
The Truckee Area Sampler two day tour will be June 23rd and 24th. Act quickly as this has sold out every year!
Truckee River** The flows have started coming up a bit and the water is clear. In town the flows are 302cfs and below Boca 827. Afternoon water temps have been up and down 45-50 degrees. The Truckee has been fickle the last week and I think it is due to the diurnal changes in flows from the runoff being about 75cfs. This next heat wave should push the water temps up and get the fish going. Indicator nymphing and stripping streamers have been accounting for the fish. All bugs are in play so the fish have a lot of choices. Now that the ants have started maybe well see some surface activity.
Little Truckee*** The flows on the LT bumped up to 366cfs and the afternoon water temp was 44-45. The water has given the LT a much needed flush and the water has cleared nicely. There has been a decent PMD hatch and the fish are looking up for them. Nymphing has been the most productive until the hatch starts then switching to dries has been excellent. With the Ants coming off this week should be really good dry fly fishing.
Prosser, Boca, Stampede**-*** The reservoirs are continuing to fill and flows should bump again with the current warm up. Inlets, drop-offs, and the dam areas are good places to target with an Indicator set-up or stripping streamers on a sinking line. In the afternoon look for fish taking ants in the wind lines.
Side Note: The road to Jackson Meadows is still snowed in. At this time there is no access. This may change very soon.
See you on the water,
