Walker Rivers Fishing Report July 17, 2014

Filed under: Guide Trip Reports — admin at 3:46 pm on Thursday, July 17, 2014

The East Walker is hanging in there with flows in the low 90′s.  Don’t be afraid to move around and get out of the Mile.  Fish will be spooky so try to blend in and stay quiet around the river.  Light, short leader and tippets are the way to go and don’t forget to check and clean your flies every other cast or so.  Small midges, dry dropper set ups and caddis are your best bets.  Please be aware of the river temps. try to get the fish to the net as quick as possible and make sure the fish are fully revived before releasing.

The West Walker is low and crystal clear.  Seems to be getting a fair amount of pressure, try to get there early.  Stealth is key, good presentations are going to make the difference.  Go small and light and cover water.  Midges, caddis, mayflies should all do the job.

Truckee River Fishing Report July 27, 2014

Filed under: Guide Trip Reports — admin at 3:38 pm on Thursday, July 17, 2014

Fly fishing on the Truckee river has been better than expected lately.  Get out there early or the last couple hours of the day, the water is warm. Faster water is going to hold the fish, they need the oxygen. Please try to get the fish to the net as quick as possible and make sure they are fully revived before releasing. Been seeing a lot of crawdads on the river bed along with the usual bugs. Smaller dark maylies, green caddis, midges and stoneflies are pretty much the go to this time of the year. Call the shop for a guide if you want to get to know some of the spots or techniques we use when fishing the Truckee.
