A lot smokey up here in the greater Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area on the Truckee River. The Rim Fire in Yosemite has the whole area under smoke. Thing is fish like the smoke, acts like cloud cover. The smoke has actually kept temps down, and the bite going through the end of August. The whole river has been fishing well in both states. Very good for late August. Nymph the fast water, and throw streamers in the deeper slots and holes. Dry dropper rigs can be very effective along the banks as the hoppers are out and some trouts may not pass up the oppurtunity. Streamers-use crays, or sculpins, small baitfish patterns can work well too. This is the last weekend for a lot of people, but the fishing, or the gooood fishing is going to start happening. Next post, I’ll put up two dates for another nymphing clinic with Doug O. The last one was awesome.
