TRUCKEE TRIVIA #5...da Stumper Answer

OK, thought I'd step it up a bit and make the trivia a bit more challenging. Maybe it was too challenging.

ANSWER: 2.7 miles*

* from the San Francisco Fly Casting Club's printed "Brief History":


"...Since the Truckee River is  designated as a navigable river, the Club asks that those floating the the 2.7 miles of river respect the fact that the waters as designated "Fly Fishing Only---Catch & Release" and respect the fact that shorelines are the private property of the Club for use by members and guests. The Club supports a number of fishing-related groups and respectfully requests that same support in return."

  1. If the river is a navigable - therefore public - river how can the DFG allow SFFC to plant fish as is rumored?

  2. Rich---Good question. The planting is not rumor. I do not know the answer other than to say...and I'm guessing...it is who you know in high places. Local, unfounded rumor is the club is connected to the White House; regardless who is there.

  3. I think it's Clint Eastwood's influence. Or maybe Chuck Yeager's.
