Little Truckee Trip – April 15

Nice rainbow!!!

I fished the Little Truckee Sunday with a couple from San Francisco and their 6 year old son.  This was their first fly fishing experience.  It was a beautiful sunny day and there were quite a few people out.  Almost everyone I talked to had caught some fish.  A small caddis was hatching when we got there.  Fish were eating the pupa just under the surface in the flat water stretches.  Saw a few BWOs and little dark stoneflies, but not very many.  While there was the occasional rising fish, nymphing was the best tactic.  A small BWO nymph and a small San Juan worm worked best for us.    The flows are about 160cfs and there are plenty of fish in the stream.  I saw fish in every run we fished.  The 6 year old, Sean, caught the first and biggest fish all by himself.  Great kid and very focused on fishing!  Definitely a fun day on the LT.
