We don’t know when it starts exactly, or when it will end for sure. But while it’s here, we’ll have a good time!!! The water temps slowly come down, and the fish become much more active, especially, the Brown trout in our area waters. The spawning urge makes them move up-stream and increases their feeding. The flush of snow-melt from the season’s first snow is the key to getting fish to move around. That can come anytime in Oct. We bring extra clothes for the chillier air temps. Bring along a shelled jacket, fleece hat, and fingerless gloves. But mostly we have perfect days in between the little flurries of weather. The seasonal lack of fishing pressure helps the fish to relax, and gives us room to fish, most anywhere we want. The Autumn colors are dazzling, and the woodland creatures are on the move. Some are preparing to leave us, and others getting ready for winter.

Give me a call with any questions - Fall fishing is here!

Experience the Truckee River with a Professional Fly Fishing Guide

You'll be amazed by the abundance of nature the Sierra Nevada Mountains offer. The terrain varies from alpine peaks, to sage scented lower canyons. The Truckee River alone travels over 60 miles in the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe Region flowing through picturesque canyons with foamy braided runs, deep fast slots, and quiet pools. The Truckee is known as a challenging river with a wide variety of techniques used on larger rainbows and browns. Depending on the time of year you visit, the fish species targeted, and water you choose, we'll venture into dry fly fishing, nymph fishing, and streamer fishing. Often, all those styles in the same day. Whatever your current experience level, or particular interest, you'll be sure to have a memorable time fly fishing!
