Truckee River Fishing Report 6/22/13

This is it, we’re into summer and the Truckee River in Tahoe-Reno-Truckee, is firing on all cylinders. The river is fishing very well. Bugs galore. Caddis, drakes, stones, sallys, pmds, crays. Daytime temps have been in the 60-70’s. The dog and I have been staying nice and cool. We have some water coming out of Lake Tahoe now, and the upper stretches from what I hear are fishing good too. We have epic caddis hatches every evening, if you’re lucky you will see some drakes too. You will see them pop’n off during the day, not in big numbers to bring them up, but fish will chow down on the nymphs. For the most part, here at G.G.S., we’re nymphing. That’s what gets ‘er done on this river. Fish are in fast pocket water this time of year, and you need to get your flies in the zone. No zone=no fish. I purposely took a few days off to fish this week. Even though I’m guiding out on the river every day, I’m not fishing. You do need to stay in practice and experiment with new flies, keep progressing. Sounds silly, but fly fishing is a journey, and you never stop learning.

    Levelle- yes, seen a few this year, just got my dog snake trained in fact.

    Let me see if I have this right. You go to work every morning on the river, helping people catch trout, you take a couple days off and what do you do? You go right back out on the river and catch more trout. This schedule is brutal!

    You are an inspiration to us all.

    Have you seen any rattlers>? Ran into 3 over just the last month between Farad and Floriston.
