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.
Finally a little cooler weather and afternoon thunderstorms have been helping.
Air temps and water temps are way up everywhere in the Truckee Area. Outta sight daytime temps, record breaking type shit the last few weeks.
It’s pretty much hot as hell, about as hot as we get here in the Lake Tahoe-Truckee area. Let’s hope our Truckee River trout can pull it off this summer.
It’s looking like California Dept of Fish and Wildlife is going to close drought stricken rivers in California by next week.
Flows keep dropping more on the Truckee River.
