General Report for the area!

It’s that time of the year, the East Carson River is turning prime!  Flows are in the 300’s and the wading is getting easier day by day.  Stonefly husks are everywhere, Caddis are starting to pop as well as PMD’s, Yellow Sallies and a few large Mayfly Drakes as well.  The evening hatch has been great!  Streamers are still fooling a few fish during the day but Stonefly Nymphs, Caddis Nymphs and Little Yellow Sally Nymphs have been the most successful.  The West Carson River is prime and has been for a few weeks now.   Corey has had a few guide trips on the West Carson Riverthat have caught fish all day long on dries, not big fish but a lot of action!  Fish with Yellow Sallies, Humpies, Small Stimulators and Beetles!   The Stillwater fishing has slowed a bit but can still be good early in the day and evenings.  Look for Calibaetis, Damsels and a few Blood Midges late in the day.  Red Lake, Caples and Indian Creek are worth a fish!  Call the fly shop for further details and have a great day of fishing!

Sawmill Pond Kids’ Fishing Day June 7th, 2008

Lots of prizes for the kids!

What a success!  There were tons of kids and we all had a great time.  Most of my guides showed up to volunteer their time and fishing expertise and the kids really enjoyed their help!  There are plenty of fish left in the pond and if you want to get your kid into fishing, this is the place to do it!  Sawmill Pond has been a kids 14 years and under fishery for many years now and is only one of two ponds of its’ kind in the state of California!  Great place to get a kid hooked on fly fishing, just throw a PT Nymph under an indicator and make sure they are hanging on!  2.5 miles past the “Y” intersection going West and you can’t miss the pond!  Have fun!



TFFO blog open for business

I am really excited to announce that our blog is up and running.  Much thanks to Brian Frias, web guru and friend of the shop, for all his hard work and effort in getting this project completed.  For all of our clients, friends and the fishing public we now have a resource for them to use on a daily basis that will give them information on what’s hot on the local fishing scene.  All of our guides and shop employees are looking forward to posting this information for you.  Also, look forward to updated fishing reports on our website as we now have that capability. 

Special thanks to Scott Freeman, the wizard of the East Walker, for hosting me and fellow guide, Aaron Fox on the Sierine Ranch section of the river.  Scott, in addition to being an unbelievable guide is one great guy to spend some time with.  This strech of private water has an incredible amount of large rainbows and browns.  I can attest to this since I was schooled by at least 2 of these beasts.  I believe everyone should treat themselves to a piece of private water every so often.  Contact the shop for details on our private fisheries.  I would like to remind everyone to please keep our fisheries clean by packing out your trash and picking up what you come across.
