Re: Truckee river opener!
Flows easing down, temps still chilly 43-46. Color is pretty good.
Large hatch of Baetis from Hirschdale up. Sz 22 black nymph. Masses of BWO's too when it's overcast.
Large fish in shallow waters, right up next to the bank. No noses. Be sneaky.
Green Drake nymphs are wandering about getting ready. They're about a month away from popping.
Some Cranefly hatching, as well as a March browns.
Next week, if it's warm, I expect to see Flying Ants.
This is a great time to prowl the water!
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
