Despite the cold snap, fishing was good this weekend on the Truckee River. The winter window of fishing is open, mainly because the flows are stable. It’s hard to say what’s going to happen down the road. Looks like we are suppose to get hit with some storms by the middle to end of this month. Hopefully, they’re cold storms and we continue to fish our way into spring. Though, I don’t mind when the river blows out. Everyone’s at home and the fishing can sometimes be very good. The bugs receded this weekend, but they’ll be back this week with warmer weather. Good flows, and lots of bugs will be the deal this week. This is Fidel’s first fish on a fly rod, on his very first drift.
