The Day The Planets Aligned On The Little Truckee River
Success on the Little Truckee River can mean many different things when it comes to plying her waters with a fly rod. A grab, a look, or maybe a decent fish or two. The bottom line is this river is not a easy place to catch a bunch of fish. My client yesterday, Ken from Missouri wanted a introduction to stalking trout in Northern California. In Missouri they have manicured "trout parks" that have stocked trout and crowds of anglers that make the Little Truckee look like a private fishery. So I took the time with Ken to teach him about wild trout behavior, proper presentations, studying water, flies, and entomology. This boy from the south was a quick learner!
