Little Truckee River - CA (Sierra County)

With flows being bumped up one doesn’t need to go so light with the leader and tippets now. Think more about using 3x or 4x. Can only go as far as crest before last parking lot! Access is limited here as the crew working up at Stampede has it blocked past this point with heavy equipment. If you need to go further it will have to be by snowmobile, snowshoe, or foot. PLEASE LEAVE SPAWNING RAINBOWS ALONE TO DO THEIR THING! REMEMBER YOUR ETHICS AS YOU ARE STEWARDS OF THE WATERSHED! Trout here will be feeding on a steady diet of Midges and BWO/Baetis, so have all stages of these bugs in your box. The rule of thumb here has been 3x-5x depending on the situation. Fall backs to use are San Juan Worms when nothing else seems to work. Hint: the bigger fish in this system prefer emergers over adults most the time, so learn how to fish emergers effectively.
