Ugly, thats the only word for the glop that fell last night.
Roads are scary, I80 is closed. Power interuptions too.
Flows look higher and brown.
Time for a road trip.

Holy blow out!! The East Walker is even flowing at 850! E Carson was around 2000, Truckee seems to be dropping and is around 1600. Maybe Pyramid if I ever get around to picking up a license.

Flows are up, but fishable.
CA side is green/tan, the lower you go in the canyon, the bigger and off color it gets.
They are a bit moody due to water temps. 43-47 on edges.
Fish edges and current breaks.
Softer water and troughs.
Skwalas, BWOs, and a few march browns.
Caddis on the horizon.
Worms galore.
Crays are out.
Be very careful out there. Wader/swimmers are more frequent.
Bring extra clothes, wading belt, a staff, and studs..

Truckee fast and brown, might be fishable upstream, but just driving by and looking at the flows and color has me thinking stillwater.

Speaking of which, roads are plowed to mallard cove at Davis Lake, and ice is off the lake everywhere but right at the dam. No access to the west side except by snow mobile or snow shoe.

Gonna start another thread on semi-local lakes or maybe a NorCal-NorNev thread would be better - I know this is a never ending thread, but if I am not talking about the Truckee, then I wonder if my comments really fit the thread.

Most of the T is looking better. Good color, temps are down (47 deg).
Flows are at 400cfs up above town, and fishy.
Still a few skwallas running around if sunny.
Most fish are being taken within 5-7 feet of the bank. No really.
Think soft water, light weight.
BWOs are futzing in weak waves. A few march browns (yes it is June).
Seeing more Green drake nymphs, but don't get your hopes up yet.
And don't forget to bring a zebra midge.
Pinch those barbs.......

June 24 - 26 the club I belong to California Fly Fishers Unlimited will be going on its 28th annual Truckee area outing and I'm going on that one too. I'm really hoping LT & T will be in some shape other than totally blown out, I realize I may be being delusional the this winter is going. Yes I know its not winter!

I really do not want to buy a float tube, but I may have to as a compromise since right now I can't afford the Dave Scadden tubeless I really want.

The T is returning to form.
Water temps are hovering around 42-45. Deep green on the upper section.
A bit tan below Squaw crk, and Donner crk.
If we don't get anymore snow, I think we are good to go.
Not a huge blizzard of bugs up here yet.
But seeing midges, Baetis, BWOs, a march brown or two still, and yesterday a PMD.
A smattering of caddis fluttering about when it warms.
Green Drake adults have been spotted nearer NV line.
Seeing more GD nymphs up here.
Many little yellow sally nymphs in the net.
Found a large golden stone nymph near shore, about ready to go.
The flying ants have made an appearence too!
Fish warming in the shallows, watch where you walk.

Jim
