Meanwhile over on the Little Truckee, being that you can usually find me on the Truckee. The Little Truckee is a great place and could be one of the finest tailwaters in the state. Problem is everyone else feels the same. Seems like you can’t even find a spot to park in the upper lot anymore. Big hatches of Honda Prii on the weekends up there. Since I made a vow to never fish the upper lot below Stampede anymore, I have a renewed interest in the lower stretches again. I have had a lot of great days out there and I’ve honed a lot of flies on the LT over the years, like my cripple series, and green drakes. I guess the reason so many people fish it is the size of the fish, which on average are pretty big. You’ll find me over there a little more the next few months as the Truckee’s pumping and time will tell when it will become fishable. These are some photos of today and Keith’s best impression of running down the man. Keith lost some really hard charging fish, but did land his first brown on a fly rod.

    They#39;ve been near that mark for about a week or so out there. Not the best for dry fly fishing, but good for nymphing.

    Matt, I have been watching the flows and it seems like they raised them up to 300+ CFS….was that the case yesterday? Looks pretty good from your photos…..Ryan
