The word is cold. We just haven’t managed to get out of this cold snap. I really don’t think we’ve made it out of the 20’s for nearly two weeks here in the Hirsch. -10 here at my house this morning. Usually it would be warmer down on the Nevada side, but it’s been cold there too. Good news is that warming is suppose to happen this week. 45 in Truckee by this weekend. Access on the Cali side is still an issue in some spots -there is just no where to park because of all the snow. You might want to bring the snowshoes to get to the river in certain areas. On the Nevada side snow is not an issue. We have caught some fish lately, though it’s been cold, and ice in the guides all day isn’t that rad. I’ll be much more stoked to get out there this week when it warms up. Nymphing of course is the way to go. Hit them trouts on the head. There is no need to walk miles of river-pick a run, work it thoroughly. This month looks like we will warm up and dry out. The festivities are over, and it’s time to gear up for 2013. The fishing should be pretty darn good.
