Re: Truckee river in october!
Swed, It's true, we have some water and some trouts....both in NV. and CA.
The Truckee is a med sized high gradient river, mostly nymphing, but at times you can use a dry to effect. Upstream is in Ca. and smaller water.
By the time it gets to NV. it's pretty big water 800 cfs or more. Waders are a good call, for both the T and Pyramid.
Oct. should be outstanding for the T...... BROWNS will be going a little crazy!
Some big bows are always a possibility here. Don't forget the nick name is the "Tuffy".
If it's a cool fall some good fishing to be had at Pyramid. This is a unique fishery that might be worth hiring a guide.
Arlo's guide service will treat you well. He's a fishy guy, you will learn alot. Check youtube, or google. He has a permit for the Piaute reservation (Pyramid).
As well as NV. guide lic.
I fish a 5-6wt on the T (with floating line), and an 6wt with a floater for indicator fishing, and an 8wt at pyramid (sinking line) for streamers.
Hope you have a good trip!
Feel free to PM.
