I recently had the opportunity to fish the Upper Truckee river. I had great success despite the skinny water. Most of the fish that I landed were very small, but was lucky enough to stick two fish around 8-10 inches long. One of them being a perfect brook trout specimen. Our tributaries can be a very rewarding and occasionally will yield a lunker trout that moved up in there to spawn out of Lake Tahoe. All of the fish in our tributaries are wild and should be returned to the water unharmed. Please practice barbless catch and release fishing. If we continue taking wild trout from our waters then the future of fishing is doomed. Numerous times this season I have heard from locals, ” the fishing isn’t as good as it was when I was a kid”. Each time someone has said that to me they have each had stringers of wild fish that were slain where they shouldn’t have been. This is a perfect example of cause and effect. Sadly, this problem is nation wide, and something needs to be done! The future of trout fishing is up to us! Please catch and release, and report poachers to Cal Tip. Have fun out there. Tight Lines.
