E-Quickie Report #14


...time of year for egg-eaters...fish way below the redds!
Simply...LT below dam experiencing real big flows, above normal...tough. BT best fly fished  above Boca/LT inflow (below BIG) all the way to upstream Tahoe City along state route #89 (no fishing 1000 feet below Lake Tahoe release) ; flows are angler-friendly. Now is the time to explore the numerous small streams & creeks. Remember, they'll provide optimum conditions for just 7-10 days and then too low, so "stick & move" until you locate willing trout.

Busman's Holiday in Utah

Before the founder/proprietor of both Thy Rod & Staff and the Reel School of Fly Fishing starts to get seriously busy with guiding & clinics, he is going to Utah's Green River below Flaming Gorge dam;  departing via flight from Reno on the 18th and returning the 24th of April. Two adventurous fly anglers will wade-fish for two days and then be pampered during three days of guided drift-fishing. Having lived vicariously about the Green; CyberFly will now experience it first-hand to verify if all the positive stories about this fishery is true.
 The hope is the timing is right and the BWO hatch will be in full-bloom...with a lot of surface-feeding trout. He and his fishing compatriot are prepared for all eventualities, both  method-wise and  unpredictable spring weather-wise.
Stay tuned for a colorful report & absolutely stunning images...
