I ran my first guide trip of the new year on Friday the 14th on the East Walker.We had action on both dries and nymphs in various midge patterns and some baetis nymphs.The flows were low at 33cfs with water temp in the low forties.The best action was late morning into early afternoon with some rising fish.Our catch that Glen and Cynthia put together was a mix of fat rainbows and browns.They was snow around the river and morning temps in the twenties and up to the mid forties in the afternoon very pleasant for winter fishing.With beautiful scenery to go along with good fishing on 14″ to 18″ biting trrout who could ask for more.There is fishing and the river is currently free of ice in both California and Nevada.Don’t sit around BOOK A TRIP NOW with one of our guides.

Good fishing,

It’s time to go ice fishing around the Lake Tahoe area!Red Lake and Caples Lake are fishing well,both jigs and bait are producing good catches of trout.Ice fishing can be fun for all ages.Be prepared for cold weather and wear layers and waterproof snow boots,hat and gloves.My favorite time is mid morning to early afternoon on the nicer days.If you have not been ice fishing before you should try it.Take a half day guide trip with one of our guides,we have the gear you just bundle up.Always use caution and be aware of current ice conditions and any warnings.We have gear for sale in the shop including augers,rods and needed tackle and bait.Come out and let us show you some winter fun.

Good fishing!

Truckee River Fly Fishing!

Filed under: General Topics — victor at 6:00 pm on Saturday, January 1, 2011

Truckee River fly fishing is just about ready to pop!  The flows on the lower sections of the Truckee River are getting into shape and the water is becoming clear!  The next couple of weeks should be hit and miss and then hang on for the Baetis hatch towards the end of January…  I will be doing a bit more guiding this Winter and Spring and am looking forward to guiding the East Truckee River.  There will be three of us guiding the Nevada sections of the Truckee River this Winter and Spring!  Join either Peter Santley, Mike Curtis or myself for a fun day of guided Fly Fishing on the Truckee!
