Northern Sierra Fishing Report 6-17-14
I have been on the Truckee and Little Truckee mostly over the past few weeks with a few trips on the MF Feather. The Truckee has been fantastic with fish eating PMD's caddis and stones fished on top as well as tight line nymphing. Pressure has been fairly light and fish can be found in a variety of water. Water temps and flows are still good.
Green Drakes and PMD's are rolling mid morning on the LT with fish being caught on nymphs, emergers/cripples and dries. If you dont see fish rising, tight line techniques are producing strikes. Flows are very good.
Things are getting interesting on the MF Feather with flows dropping rapidly. The good thing is that water temps are in the low 60's. Dry fly fishing with trico's, caddis, yellow sallies and stones is good to great depending on the day. Nymping with copper johns, pt's and iron sallies has been very productive as well.
The hex hatch at Lake Davis is in full swing but water temps are starting to become an issue.
