Default Re: Truckee river opener!

Officially spring, didn't freeze last night. River is up a foot in a week, and temps dropped from 50 to 43, in the same time. Color is still OK. Beautiful fish eating!
Both Browns and Bows, a couple of white fish too. Not many noses, but sub-surface is happening.
A few biggies with a stimmy (yellow/black), on the section above Truckee.
Lower flows up there, less pressure as well.
BWO's, March browns, Golden stones, small Caddis, Baetis, and of course... Midges.
Fish dark nymphs, and small soft hackles. Make some longer leaders, 9ft is sorta short right now 3-4x will do, and bring some extra weight. Wade carefully.
You guys getting out?
