Some big news out of the Truckee/Tahoe area this morning. After over a year, there is finally water flowing out of Lake Tahoe again! Yes, it’s only 5 CFS but we’ll take all the help we can get.

With that said, the weather has been the talk of the down lately in the fishing world. With two small storms, and one big one under out belt already things are looking up. Couple that with the big storm starting as we speak, you can’t help  but get a little excited about this winter.
Things have stayed pretty much the same as far as our rivers go. Flows have stayed consistent on the Little Truckee and Big Truckee (below Boca) the last few weeks. As you might imagine with the colder weather, fish are finally transitioning to slower, deeper holding water. This is especially true on the Big T.
We’ve been getting most of our fish on the usual winter bugs, small baetis nymphs, olive and dark, black winter stones, worms and every variation of small midge you can imagine. If you’re looking to try and a get a fish on top, the LT is your best bet right now. Look for any warming trends for your best chances.
Our Christmas/New Yrs week is looking really busy as of right now but we do still have guide openings. If you find your self up this way and want a break from the crowds on the mountain, give us a call. http://mattheronflyfishing.com/

Although we might have a few wet trips this week, we should have the rivers all to ourselves!
