Nights have cooled and we are in our usual Indian Summer type Tahoe weather pattern.
Flows are still low out on the Little Truckee for the enhancement-restoration project.
Halfway done with August, I’m ready for summer to end and fall to begin.
The cork will be put in the flows out of Stampede on the Little Truckee River for the restoration/ enhancement project happening out there starting tomorrow, 8/16.
Afternoon rain/ thunderstorms continue all over the Reno-Tahoe-Truckee area. All over the Eastern Sierra’s.
A little more rain and cooler temps this week are helping.
Flows on the Little Truckee River have now dropped to 21 cfs. To low to fish in my opinion. Please stay off the Little Truckee River and the main Truckee River until flows come up.
Despite the drought, Reno and Tahoe are experiencing 150-200% of average rainfall from June to present. Weird weather, and I think everyone should brace for a huge winter in California.
The lower Truckee River East of Reno is loaded with carp. They are super hard to catch with the fly, and they fight super hard when you do hook them. They have been dubbed the poor man’s bonefish.
A week of afternoon rains all over the Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area. Pretty crazy really, being that in July, it’s usually blue bird every day. Flash flood watches, hail, and very cool/ almost cold weather.
