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.
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.
It seems like it’s been years since I got the 2wt out.
Some good rain and snows up here in the Tahoe area, not really enough to add volume to the Truckee River, but everything helps at this point.
Can you believe it has snowed more the last month than pretty much all year? Anything helps, but it ain’t gonna do much.
Flows are up a bit since last report, about 320 cfs here in the Hirsch, a just barely floatable flow, and something I have been taking advantage of while it lasts.
One nice thing about Truckee-Tahoe, and the Tahoe National Forest is that there are many other options to fish when the water on the Truckee River will get to low later this summer.
