Your feedback & personal reports are always appreciated & encouraged...so that others can tune-in to what you've experienced along what I'm reporting. Then, hopefully with your other additional comments this blog report may become timely & reliable advice for those planning a vist to the Truckee area. Uh...comments will be monitored for disparaging remarks or anyhing I disagree ;-)
Back to the Present:
It is officially Fall in the Truckee both visually & chronologically. The leaves are amber, gold & red...some are falling to the ground during brisk winds. The BT and LT are at low-flows; the exception being in the canyon below the Boca inflow.Yesterday, the BT at the Loop, from 9:30AM-12:30PM produced well; about a dozen smallish 8"-11" RainBows. The hot fly was a #20 Rubber-Legged Copper John; under an indicator with two (2) #6 shot. The water was 58-61 degrees. BWO's, a tiny #20-22 (PsuedoCleon?), 18-20 Tan Caddis and a sized #14 Mahogony Dun (?) were high-lighted against the sun and/or dipping/egg-laying on the flows which were at comfortable 150cfs. A brief 1-1/2 hour session on the LT resulted in a brightly-colored 10" brown which ate a #18 Olive ComParaDun. Several larger trout were rising...consistently, but failed to eat. The water level is at minumal flows of 37 cfs. A mild breeze was present.
