Native Sons Truckee Tours 2019 ~ Dates & Info

The CONCEPT—Through many years of guiding fly anglers in the Tahoe-Truckee and Graeagle areas; both Jon Baiocchi of Baiocchi’s Troutfitters and Frank R. Pisciotta have noticed a trend. Many of their experienced fly angling clients visiting for the first time or having previously fished the area expressed an interest in becoming more familiar with the idiosyncrasies of the local “wild trout” fisheries; hoping to minimize their “prospecting” time. They engaged Jon or Frank’s services with their prime focus being an orientation to local waters; being guided and catching trout being secondary. These fly anglers want to be briefed about: 

-Most productive techniques
-Local bugs and respective fly patterns
-Seasonally ideal angling times
-Key access points of selected waters

The SPECIFICS: The Tour is designed to give fly anglers what they need to know to be successful when venturing on selected special regulation sectors of the Big Truckee, from the town of Truckee to Hirschdale, and the Little Truckee below Stampede dam. Fly fishers will learn of access points, equipment, tactics, techniques, flies, entomology, and local inside knowledge. The Tour entails a “meet & greet” and PowerPoint presentation on Friday evening. Attendees receive a Tour Packet consisting of a map, essays on both waters, and a hatch chart. A bonus is a copy of the original Truckee Little Truckee Tips. Saturday we auto-caravan; participates providing their own transportation. Lunch and drinks are included. After lunch we wader up (bring your own gear) and split into two fishing groups; similar to a guide trip.

Tours are limited to six (6). Jon and Frank know they can easily enroll more tour guests, but they want to assure a high quality experience. We maintain a maximum 3-1 ratio of attendee to “tour” guide. 

WHO WE ARE: Jon and Frank are the founders of the Native Sons Tours. They are “born & raised” northern Californians with a combined 58 years of guiding fly anglers exclusively on their “home waters” and a near-century, 98 years of fly fishing experience. The tour information dispensed is reliable, timely and ingrained from Jon and Frank’s vast experience. Simply, experience does count. They have always tailored guide trips to the specific desires and skills of the individual client and have planned their guest’s time accordingly.

Hence the genesis of the Native Sons Tours; to provide a group of experienced fly anglers a short learning curve and cost-effective investment in their angling time. There is nothing comparable to these tours; some have imitated and tried. The word has spread and the above scheduled tours get booked way in advance. If interested in a private, affinity group tour and your own selected dates; we are receptive…inquire.
