    Casey is dialing it in! I see purple!
    She made a few drifts and made a change.......the next drift was a fish.
    Midges and Baetis of course.........BUT, Skwallas are around somewhere......
    And there are a few Winter Stones now appearing.
    Water is very clear and low. Use your best ninja approach, and THE best drift you have ever made.........
    SWEEP-SET.....................

    The bar isn't set by the fish we catch, but by the one's we don't.

    My protege at work on the bad-ass storm day.......3 deg above zero.
    Fishing a Mole fly to risers.......to good effect.
    We were the only ones out fishing for the entire area.
    Dedication to fun is the key for me. It's great finding a student that can hang with me too!
    That, and good warm gear of course..........

    That looks like my kind of fishing.

    Cut back on the pics Jim. You're killing me here. I'm dying over here in this God forsaken land. What I wouldn't do to smell good ol' US soil and clean, clear river waters.

    Hey Fella's
    Loving the winter pics! Im coming up this weekend and was wondering about access to the river with all the recent snow? Would be my first time fishing the Truckee in the winter....and would love any hot tips on access. Should I just be looking for any reasonable parking spot along glenshire or hirschdale and try to slog my way thru the snow?

    Any hot tips PM or otherwise would be appreciated!

    Sorry I missed your post.....best to call, or text me, as I'm not a frequent poster.
    Snow shoes would have been my advise....
    And a big stick as well.......
    We have midges,skwallas and BWOs in stock.
    Let us hear how it went.
