Let'em Breathe!!I was going through a jumble or paperwork in my upstairs office space and I came across an 8-panel Thy Rod & Staff brochure I had printed and distributed in the mid-80's to early '90's....the infancy of my fly fishing guide service.
I quickly read through the copy and then wondered if there were similarities or changes...in the Truckee, fly fishing "scene" then and now. Here's Panel l, Inside:
The Lake Tahoe region is a world renowned, diversified recreational playground. The addition of trophy trout angling in the area's alpine waters make this the premier outdoor site in the pristine High Sierra
During the70's California's Fish & Game became aware of the natural fishery potential that the area possessed. Working with California Trout, the angler conservation organization, the state instituted "Wild Trout" waters. Restrictive regulations in the form of creel limits, minimum and maximum size requirements and gear use was mandated. The area now sustains self-perpetuating, natural trout populations without the intrusion of hatchery fish that dilute their native instincts. Rainbows, brooks, browns and cutthroats, all jewels in their own right, are available to the conscientious fly angler in and around the Tahoe-Truckee basin
