Little Truckee River Fishing Report 5/4/14
Last Friday was more than just a fish out with close friends; it was a meeting of the minds of highly trained professionals. Chris Maher, Frank Pisciotta, and myself ran indicator rigs, lead, and San Juan worms working known holding water. Flows are at 385, and the Little Truckee River has some good current to it. A few BWO’s were out, but no heads showing.
Good drifts with plenty of stack mends is what produced today, putting your rig through the sweet spot at the right depth got the grab. With these flows it will be a dredge and bobber game, still though, there is some nice trout to be hooked in the LT right now. As always on this crowded river, give other anglers their space, and if in doubt, ask.
*Special shout out to Chris Maher who is leaving to guide in Alaska at the Baranof Wilderness Lodge in less than a week. Good luck Captian! Have a safe and productive season up there buddy! Someday I’ll get there.....
