Fall has arrived! A little rain, a little snow, and some cold morning temps have really turned the fishing around. The fish are super feisty right now. Crowds this week were minimal and it is a great time to get out do some fly fishing. The water is cool so put on the heavy socks and long underwear.
For the month of October I will be guiding Steelhead on the Klamath and Rogue rivers. I have a few days open in the middle of October for those looking to swing flies for Steelhead.
If you are looking for Truckee guide service give Jay Clark a call at 530-414-1655. He also guides on Davis lake which can be pretty good in the fall.
Truckee River*** The flows are low at around 150cfs in town and 474cfs at Boca. Water temps have been 43-48 degrees. The storms over the last week have given us the much needed change that we were looking for. Fishing is super on the Truckee right now. There are hatches of BWO’s and Caddis mid-morning and a few fish coming up. Try BWO’s 16-18, EC Caddis 16-18, Parachute Adams 16-18, and Elk Hair Caddis 16-18. Nymphing has been really productive with Mirco Mays 16-20, Birdnests 16-18, Caddis pupa 16-18, Zebra Jonnys 16-20, PT’s 16-20.
Little Truckee*** The fish here have seemed to recover from the low flows of a few weeks ago. Current flow is at 43cfs. Nice hatches of beatis and caddis throughout the day. The are still super spooky and long leaders with fine tippet will help alot towards duping the seasoned veteran. The Kokanee and Browns have started to slip up the LT for the fall spawn. Try BWO’s 16-22, E/C Caddis 16-18, Mercers Missing Link 16, Parachute Adams 16-20, Soft Hackle 16, and Elk Hair Caddis 16-18.
North Yuba*** The North Yuba is low and fishing great. The fish seem to be concentrated in the heads of the big pools and less in the Pocket Water. The Dry Fly Bugs are similar to the Truckee right now.
