Augtober Fishing Report 8-22-14
Augtober is in full swing here in the Northern Sierra! Cool/cold overnight temps and warm afternoons have it feeling like fall and the fish are responding. This week I've been on Milton Lake, the North Yuba River and the Truckee. Flows on the Truckee are bony in and around town at 96 cfs but with the LT dumping in 59 cfs below Boca the flows in Hirschdale are at 168. Water temps have dropped a bit and are ranging from 58-64 degrees and if this trend continues we have escaped the dog days pretty much unscathed. I still urge anglers to use a thermometer and get off the water if temps hit 70 degrees. Top flies for me this week have been Thalken's Double Dutch Bug and the pink mallard and pink pt nymphs. Still getting grabs every day on the Double Dutch! Such a great fly and the fish love em!!
