Truckee River Fishing Report 2/24/13

Well, it doesn’t look like we’re getting any storms in the distant future. Except for the shot we got this week, it’s been since December that we have had significant amounts of snow. Scary for water thirsty states such as California, and Nevada. The fishing is however is very good right now on the Truckee River and we can only hope the storm doors will open before summer.  Blue wings are coming off every day, flows are stable, and the weather is relatively mild. If this continues we will have epic early spring fishing. The dry fly fishing will continue to get better. Look for march browns and skwalas entering the mix here shortly, but right now it’s blue wing olive time. Sparkle duns, Adams, thorax duns, they all work. Emergers, cripples, and soft hackles should pick the ones off that want it sub-surface. Some days are better for dry fly fishing than others. Nymphing wise, of course have any type of baetis pattern. Streamer folks should be sticking some as well. Dennis with a couple of pigs from yesterday.
