Fall is here

We had been enjoying a nice Indian summer with clear skies and sunny weather. The fishing has been decent. The main Truckee has produced more willing trout better than the Little Truckee.
 
The trout have been active and feeding and they've been fooled during late-mornings to mid-afternoon. Deep, sub-surface angling is the best method with an occassional fish taken at/near the surface with downwing patterns trailing size 16-18 droppers...imitating smallish caddis and mayflies or the large October caddis which is available, but in very sparse numbers.

Then Sunday night it started snowing and currently at my home at 6500' feet...thus far...11" of heavy, wet snow has accumulated on my "measurement rail". So, it is officially FALL; according to both the calendar and my personal progostication.
Geez, it sure looks like winter right now though.

at 10"+...with a bit more due
 
This snow will burn-off in a couple of days and then we'll have a few weeks of fall fishing conditions...and hopefully big trout...It is that time of year.
