More and more more summer weather it the Tahoe area, geez, it feels like early June up here and it’s the last week of March. Things may get interesting come April, Im telling you, winter is not over.
The Truckee River is continuing to produce some great fish and fishing. After all the shit they went through last fall with the extreme low water, these fish continue to surprise me with their resiliency. Much respect for these fish. It’s almost like the low water last fall didn’t effect them at all. Sure we lost fish, but the ones in here now are tough, and full of piss and vinegar. All they want is some water. We’ll see what happens come late summer, but for now take advantage of the beautiful weather and the great fishing that is going on right now.
March brown, blue wing olives, and skwalas rounding out the list. Nymph up on them if you want, but take advantage of the fishing looking up and throw the dry dropper rigs, super fun. Steamer fishing, yes, been busting some nice fish in the ole bunny fur.
Pyramid Lake right now can be a numbers game if you hit it right. Pyramid strain cutts are cruising the beaches looking for mates, spawning time you know. It still can be tough if you have no wind and direct sun, kinda what we’ve been having. You’re looking for some chop and or cloud cover. I’m not for getting there at 5 a.m., but if you do great, if not stay for the afternoon bite, more my style and usually better anyways. All the usual suspects are catching fish out at the lake. Retrieving buggers and beetles on the shooting head, nymphing under the indo, and fishing “naked” without the indo. Expect big crowds at the nets. May be best to fish with less people at some other beaches anyways.
