Truckee River Fishing Report-9-25-17
Got a little cold here this weekend on the Truckee River.
It snowed on us Friday, and now we’re finally hitting the 60’s again. Cold overnight lows, mild afternoons, gotta love fall. If it could just stay like this for 8 months.
Pretty descent solid fishing and the streamer bite getting better. Seems like the big fish are holding, more like hiding real tight too banks. We’ve moved some big fish out of the boat, but for the wade angler those big fish are not in their late fall water yet. They will much easier to get once they are in the runs and pools and things like that. So still lost of small fish being caught with the occasional big fish. I’m still doing real well with the dry dropper combos-they keeps you in close. Tight line nymphing of course, and always trying to get the big dog to chase on the streamers. Stay committed to the streamer game and you’ll probably end up pushing a big one around. It’s that time of year. I’ve seen about 4 big fish chase in the last 3 days. When I mean big, they are big.
Flows are perfect, it’s just a great time of year to fish the Truckee River. I do have some spots left for the Tight Line Clinic on October 7th.
