Here's are recent e-communication Q & A:
"Got any tips,
Best times; late morning to mid-afternoon.
...where and what?
OH, Sunday may not be a good day to be on the water. It is Truckee River Day on the 14th....there will be 400-500 volunteers doing various projects on the watershed."
"Thanks for the report. Probably coming up next week. I’ll check with you then see what’s up.OK, I’ll be guiding Monday- Thursday so I’ll have an idea what’s happening. Call, I’ll try to get back.
Little Truckee fishing well??
It has been tough...only 47 cfs. There are bugs ,but few risers.; even with the presence of adults of all four aqautics! Midges are dark and tiny at #20-24 (larva and pupae patterns are best options), PsuedoCleon mayflies sized 20, caddis from 20 to as big as 12's...personally have not seen the October Caddis (the "False-Fall caddis", yes) and #18-20 Olive stoneflies. Fished hooked have been sub-surface...with an occassional at the surface.
The Truckee is just starting to produce…sometimes we have to work for the fish.
Heard there are caddis hatches on the upper Sac.Probably an early appearance of the October Caddis.
Does that occur this time of year up there as well???
There are October Caddis here but in sparse numbers compared to the upper Sac or McCloud."
