Fly Fishing Guide School 2018 in the Truckee/Tahoe area!

Fly Fishing Guide School 2018 in the Truckee/Tahoe area!

Quick update, two weeks out and we still have a few openings for Guide School 2018.  If you have an interest in becoming a fly fishing guide here in the greater Truckee/Tahoe area, Alaska, the West etc. and or working for an outfitter, shop or guide group I do not know of any that do not require some type of guides school to have been accomplished.  There is the ability to start off as an independent guide but is always tough getting permits and or clients while competing against someone that has been to a guides school.  It is not a requirement to attain a guides license but helpful getting a start in the industry.  Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters for one will not hire a guide until they have taken a guides school here in the Tahoe area or at one of many across our country.  We are not the only Outfitter that runs a Guides school but we are the only guides school as complete and affordable in the West.  We concentrate on teaching Walk/Wade guiding and our school includes two additional days of shadowing one of our guides on an actual guided trip.  Give us a call if you have an interest or questions, we would be glad to have you!

TRINITY RIVER STEELHEAD

Trinity River steelhead fishing season is here.I have been floating the Trinity quite a bit this October and November.We have been hooking fish every day so far.The water is low and clear,making the fishing tough.My clients have been working hard for their fish.We have had a mix of steelhead,salmon,and brown trout in our catches.Fishing should get better when we get some decent rain.A little rain this week can’t hurt.I will be guiding over the weekend and have plenty of dates available.Book a trip and enjoy beautifull scenery and great steelhead fishing.Rates are $400.00 for full day float,2 or more days $375.00 per day.Trips include all rods ,flies ,leaders,lunch and beverages.Shuttles and gratuities not included.To book a trip or for more information call 530-541-8208  or email info@tahoeflyfishing.com

TRINITY RIVER LATE SEASON TRY IT!

Late season steelhead fishing on the Trinity River can be a great time.February and March still offer good fishing for steelhead with some brown trout mixed in.We should see longer and warmer days with hatches of mayflies and stoneflies bringing steelhead and browns to the surface on the right day.The river is less crowded and fishes well on many different stretches of the river.Last year I had some of my best fishing in March with some large browns to go with the steelhead we were catching.If you have not been to the Trinity this year it’s not too late!. My two day special of $700.00 for two days of float fishing with rods, flies and lunch included for one or two persons.One day float trips are $400.00 per day. Since last weeks rain fishing has picked up with fresh fish moving into the system.You can call me for available dates at (530) 541-8208 or e-mail to info@tahoeflyfishing.com
With good results on recent trips don’t miss it! You may have a chance to get a steelhead on a dry fly. What could be better. We still have Drift,dine and stay packages through Indian Creek Lodge starting at $950.00 for two nights lodging,two days of drift boat fishing and$100.00 dollars in dinner certificates and can be split by two people.Please call me for any more information.
Thanks and good fishing,

EAST WALKER RIVER A WINTER OPTION !

Winter fishing on the East Walker River can be rewarding.Fishing with dries or nymphs can be very productive,with mostly midges on the menu.Low winter flows require lightly weighted or no weight on nymph rigs and small tippets on dry flies.With cold nights best fishing has been from late morning into the middle of the afternoon.As we get into February we should start seeing increased hatches of midges and blue wing olive mayflies.Streamers can be effective at times in deeper runs but slow your presentation down.Late winter on the East Walker has been some of my best guide trips of the season the last few years.I am looking forward to another good season on the East Walker and hope you can join us on the river soon.Hungry browns and rainbows will be active on warmer days.
GUIDE TRIPS AVAILABLE ALL YEAR LONG! Get a hold of us at (530)541-8208 or e-mail info@tahoeflyfishing.com. Shop hours 10 TO 5 closed Sunday and Weds.

Good fishing,
