Productive flies were an elognated, #8, 3XL, rubber-legged, dark streamer while swinging a 15' sink-tip via a single-handed rod. For indicator fishing the effective flies were #8 Peach or Pink egg patterns, Prince Nymphs and a #10 Yellow Copper John.

The weather was nice with fog in the AM's and clearing in the afternoons. At one time Al Go Fish and da Consigliere were fishing shirtless! I left Weaverville CA at mid-morning and headed home on Thursday (11/8); just ahead of the snow we received here in Truckee during Friday-Saturday.
