Truckee River Fishing Report 10/29/12

I’ve been on a hiatus, more like a trout fest. I’ve been in the great state of Montana this last week in the troutopia known as the Bighorn River. I had a blast with some good friends in some awesome country. Things here on the Truckee River are about the same as when I left. Nymphing wise, baetis, midges, worms, eggs, stones, and some oct. caddis. Flows are still good, down a bit in the Hirsch and up a bit through Nevada. It is 70 degrees out today in Hirschdale. There is a sparse blue wing hatch, but overcast weather will kick them off. Streamers, though it’s sunny, can produce all day this time of year, but cloud cover is better for that game too. It’s good to be back home and back on the river. It will be a busy month for me. Got this guy today on a test run, bigger than any fish I got all last week in Montana, figures.
