Good Fishing if You Can Find the Soft Water

Matt Koles

Report Date:

Still a bit cold and snowing. 

No snow here in the Hirsch, but still snowing on top. Big winter so far.

Lots of water in the river too. About 1,600 k here, and just a bit higher in Nevada. Snows melting a bit and getting to the river is a little easier this last week.

Good fishing if you can find the soft water. The Truckee River will stay high right into summer so best learn to fish it. Probably every other river in California too. Big water=big trouts.

Clarity is good, even down low in Nevada. Streamer fishing should be your go to with the water like this, but nymphing is really good as well. Excited, as it looks like the weather is going to be really nice by the weekend. Highs in the 50’s in Truckee. Wow, bring it.

The High Water Clinic for the 23rd, and 24th is sold out. Please join me April 6th for another one.
