Pocket Water

It’s that time of year to hit the pocket water. The water coming out of Tahoe is warming water temps since the cork was put in at Boca. It’s all surface water that comes out of the lake. Bath water warm. Water temps in the Hirsch mid-morning are close to 60. Flows have been sporadic over the last few days, up and down, and with the warmer flows, I admit fishing was a bit tough. Get out and be fishing early, to early afternoon, hit it again in the evening. Them big glassy runs support little fish this time of year. Riffles, and rapids is where you want to fish, look for big buckets and seams. Fish are chewing on, crayfish, caddis, and stones.
