Glad to read that you caught fish! I'm working on being able to go up tomorrow morning all depends if one of my children are working or not and will be able to stay with grandma while I get out for few hours.

Well at a 11:00 p.m. I found out that my daughter was going to be home today to stay with grandma. So by 11:30 p.m. the Forester was all loaded. I didn't get up as early as I'd like, but I was on Truckee a little ways from Glenshire Bridge by 9:00 a.m.. It was a nice day, but I've apparently got my skunk on. I had to be home pretty early so I stopped fishing about 2:30. I fished without an indi, tried a dry dropper, and then an indi finally after several hrs of indi fishing a brown about 19" hit my indicator.

Will be passing through in the next month, but don't have a Cali license yet. I may have one on the way back, that'll be fun, and I know what to do with it. I have a NV license, but won't be east of Reno. I've never fished between stateline and boomtown, but thinking I might try as I pass through, is it worth the stop right now? No top secret info necessary, i'm happy getting skunked if thats what I earn, just curious if I should wait till I could go Cali side or east of Reno and save the gas on the first pass. Never fished in between.

Lots of places west of Reno you can fish as well, not secret spots, but you can usually catch fish at Mayberry Park, or there is a stretch of river behind Cabelas where you can pull out and park and wet a line. Both are easy access and both have about a mile of river you can get to.

Dry fly fishings going off in the evenings. especially up towards the upper section. Ive seen a few big browns eating emergers down in the lower section, only had one rise. 7-10 fish last three evenings though up higher. mostly baby's. but hell ill take 5-10 wild babies all day over glenshire bridge casters! One big one smashed my caddis this evening snapped off the 5x before i had a chance to get him to the reel. Landed a nice 14-16" wild bow which was a good fight and one of the nicer fish ive caught on a dry in this river. I always see people leaving right when it gets good!

I certainly can't speak for everyone, but a lot of folks like myself drive up from the Sacramento area just for a day trip and have to go to work the next morning. So we end up having to leave early. However, whenever I'm able to spend the night I fish till dark and sometimes even when I shouldn't.

Snow is here for the moment, but we're hoping for a break.
About 2" in Truckee town. But It's melting fast, and that's just what the Browns ordered....
A freshening of flows, temp drop, a little off color, maybe tonight.....
The bows are happy because most folks have gone home.
The water above the town of Truckee is still very low.
Below town has better flows, that get bigger and better the lower you go in the canyon.
Bug wise, they are thinning out, smaller in size, smaller in numbers.
Some very small PMDs sz 22, and some caddis (Three types) around as well.
Oct. caddis hatch has begun! Scattered appearances throughout the river, from TC down to NV.
sz 20 black baetis, and as allways a zebra midge is on the menu.
Personally, it's streamer season!
Happy hunting!

Jim

The T is beautiful right now and big fish are moving around.
A few risers here and there.
Mostly they are eating small bugs subsurface.
Midges abound and several fatties were stuck with a thread midge.
Think outside the box for more effect.
Try a single fly, maybe a soft hackle on the swing
BWOs appear from time to time when cloud passes......
Oct. Caddis are still around, bounce a pupa, or swing a skinny soft hackle emerger.
Many hoppers around, might last another week or so......
The Fall color is awesome right now, good time to take a hike or picinic some.
The storm window is about open, getter while you can.

Jim
