The last time I had kidney stones and an ER visit was in the mid-80's. Then we actually lived in Kidney-Stone Valley; the area around Mt Diablo in the east-Bay Area. The region had a disproportionate incident of kidney stones...something to do about the water.
I'm home today watching the snow fall. To date the Truckee region has 109% of snow-water content and 91% of total precipitation. After this current series of snow events ends this Tuesday I project both aforementioned percentiles will increase; really wet, heavy snow now (getting colder for great powder skiing) and anticipating 3+- feet at the higher elevations.
Good news for the trout and the forests. As for fly fishing; limited access (think snow shoes) on the BT and progressively more access as one drives east of town to the CA/NV state-line.
LT water is currently unavailable.
Close the LT to angling during the winter!
Standard times to be on the water are 11AM-3PM. Fish "low & slow" in the deep, quiet runs and pools. If sunny, there is possibility of viewing a feeding snout at the surface. Bugs and flies...small; exception is the start of an Skwala emergence....and do not forget about the Winter Stoneflies
