Northern Sierra Report 8-8-14
Welcome to Augtober in the Northern Sierra! We have had some serious rain over the past week that has led to lower water temps on the Truckee and gave us a reprieve from the summer heat. Flows are dropping around 5 cfs daily and the river is getting bony in spots. With that said the fishing has been outstanding with fish being caught daily. Ive been mostly fishing dry/dropper rigs with fish eating both. Thalken's Double Dutch has been raising some nice fish. The past few days there has been a nice baetis hatch mid morning and we have been getting some fish on small BWO and Para Adams dry flies. As we warm back up please be aware of water temps by using a stream thermometer and stop fishing when temps reach 70 degrees. The fish will thank you!
Smallmouth Bass fishing is outstanding right now at Prosser and Stampede with fish eating trout flies such as PT's and balanced leeches under the indicator.
At this time I am only doing AM half days on the Truckee. See you on the water!
