Admittedly, there hasn't been a lot of opportunity to get on the water the last six weeks; limited access and blizzard-like conditions being the main culprits. We've had a record-breaking amount of snow for the month of January in the Truckee area; 220"-plus! It still continues; albeit currently very wet and heavy (makes for labored shoveling!), turning to sleet and now a deluge of rain during the last day and predicted through this week-end. I'm not complaining, we really need it. The down-side is that we local residents then to get cases of the mentally debilitating "shack-nasties"...the cure is to go fishing.

Here's a recent E-QUICKIE:
2/4---"...limited area to fish; only one access/parking…an experienced fly angler fished 3-1/2 hours...hooked three/landed two…both 16” rainbows… indicator nymphing…cold water at 39-41 degrees…#20 black Disco Midge and # 16 Yellow Stonefly nymph being the productive patterns"
