This morning the air is crisp. The canyon still has some shade in it. But up along the steep canyon banks of the Truckee River the sun is a blazing and the hoppers are still jumping about. This week feels like summer is trying to peek her head out for one last hoo raw. The water has a nice bite to it, we are still wearing our shorts because we are not ready to put those crusty waders back on. ( I found out how leaky they are this past week at pyramid, yuck). The fish are eating well and appear to have made it through the summer in great shape. Well, at least the ones down here below the mouth of Boca through out the deep canyon. We are best to avoid the drought ridden upper sections. It is quite sad in the town of Tahoe City these days along the Truckee River. And even worse one might say down in the desert of Nevada where those beastly fish once roamed. Hopefully mother nature is kind to us and our fishy friends this winter. But for now a small section of the river is still in great shape and fish able in a good way. You just have to know where to look.
