Anglers are now encountering unselective Brookies in the creeks and more finicky...larger...RainBows & Browns in the bigger water & lakes.
There have been multiple aqautic bug emergences from small BWO's and Caddis, to mid-sized PMD's, PED's & Mahogany Duns(?) to the large western Green Drakes and Golden StoneFlies. All of these bugs are about 5 weeks behind relative to their normal adult appearances. I've personally observed Green Drake adults throughout the area; from tiny brooks to the big Truckee. We have seen them during the day and at dusk.
As I've previously mentioned in this blog, wild flowers are profuse; even the native grasses are as high & healthy as I've witnessed during the 30-plus years since I bult my first home in Truckee.
