Fishing pretty well on the California side. And up higher on the NV side, lots of the LCT's stocked by USFWS are STILL being caught. Stones, Green Drake nymphs (Olive hare's ear, in a pinch) San Juans , Rainbow warriors. If you're adventurous, throw a big ugly Rabbit strip fly to clean up a run or hole. It was hit pretty hard with 2 years of hard drought and really warm water temps. There are some survivors and that's good. If we want the repopulation of brown trout to be there, let them go (tell your spin or bait buddies) FWS dumped in a big load of Little LCT's.. good fodder for the browns and big 'bows.

Flows in Mogul are about 270, Previously this week, we put out a chart of the temperatures out of Sparks (yes, a different location, but a good place to start) Watch those temps on the river, start looking around 11 am, and check every 30 minutes. (take a break, drink some water)

Please still carry a thermometer if you are going to be doing any Catch and Release. Have you looked closely at the trees around the Valley? See those bits of yellow? Wondering each day if Fall is going to arrive a bit sooner this year. It would be great to see some cooler temps for a few weeks, and then after the throngs of tourists leave, the locals will have a Fall Fishing Festivus for the Rest of...... Read More
