Flows have finally come down below 1,500 k on the Truckee River.
Kinda figured if was going to be right around the 4th when flows would drop. The river is still high at 1,500 k, but way more forgiving than what it was. It should keep dropping steadily.
There has been major mud pumping in from Grays Creek, making the entire lower river chocolate milk since last report. No ones sure why Grays Ck was, and is dumping in so much mud, but it is, and should be investigated.
The lower stuff towards the border and into Nevada is clearing. Good, because the stuff around here in the Hirsch is taking a beating. Rafters, swimmers, fisherman, everybody is out enjoying the water and sunshine. You’re best best is to get away from here and places like the Glenshire Bridge if you want to find some fish. Or get out early on a down patrol mission.
So nymph on ‘em, throw some big dries and a dropper, whatever floats your boat. Go mornings and again in the evenings. Come out and throw some elk hairs around at night. Caddis should really explode this week. Just pretty good fishing happening.
