Spawning Time

Most of the rainbows are colored up, and some are on their beds down on the Nevada side of the Truckee River. Haven’t seen any spawners yet on the Cali side, but with they days getting longer, it shouldn’t be long. If you do see fish spawning, usually in the tail-outs of runs, or shawel gravel bars, leave them alone. If you happen to be crossing the river and see a pair of rainbows on their beds, cross well upstream of them, as their eggs will travel down river quite a ways. With plenty of water and stable flows, it should be a good rainbow spawn this Spring. Daylight Savings Time happens this weekend, which will make the days warmer and longer. With more sunlight it should put the rest of the rainbows in full spawning mode. This was a nice cuttbow from yesterday.

    Beautiful pics, as always. I enjoy your enthusiasm for the Truckee, and share it, as well. About the Daylight Savings Time, though… It won’t make the days longer and warmer. The days will be just as though we never set the clocks ahead at all. We’ll have more daylight in which to fish after work, sure. But that time is tempered by a later sunrise. Spring, and the subsequent equinox, is what lengthens our days.

    We can call it all we want on a clock, but the Earth doesn’t care.

    *Off the soap-box, and back to the vise. Thanks for your time… I truly enjoy your postings here.*
