Getting To Know The Truckee River


The Truckee River is perhaps the most fly fished river in California. Full of quality browns and bows that can get up to 30'' the Truckee is one of the best managed fisheries in the state. Now that I'm within day-trip driving distance to this amazing fishery it was about time I took the chance to get to know the Truckee River.

Scouting The New Yuba At Fall Flows


With fall slowly approaching the Yuba River is now at a stable 1,000CFS. These flows have revealed new areas that will likely remain for the next few months until the winter flows change things up again. I took the time to check out the section above HWY 20 since it's been unfishable for the last ten months.

Eastern Sierra's Fly Fishing Adventure


Every "Fly Fishing California" book I've either scanned through or read includes a part of the state that I've always wanted to explore, the Eastern Sierras. My eyes were set on the East Walker River and Hot Creek where I was hoping to hook into the monster browns and bows that were rumored to live there. For the next four days I would be living off of burgers, fries, coca cola, and soup while exploring the beautiful Sierras.
