A Day On The Little Truckee River

Posted on April 06 2015

After two days on the ladders at Pyramid Lake getting wind and sun burnt, everyone was ready for a break to do something a little different and fortunately for us fly fishing guide (and fellow glass geek) Dan LeCount of Truckee River Outfitters suggested that we spend the day on the Little Truckee River.  The river had been fishing well with even a chance for some mayflies if it stayed cloudy and cool and if not, nymphs and midges were sure to work.

We arrived at the river mid morning, geared up, and then hiked into the river.  Mule deer, eagles, and many other birds were just a few local fauna that we came across.

Over the course of the day we covered several different locations on the Little Truckee River and found some noses coming up for emergers and small dry flies.  Most takes however came to small midges and worm flies fished deep.

The Little Truckee River is beautiful water with a lot of different looks with open meadows, canyons, and forests.  It was great to have Dan's expertise to look to throughout the day and we would have been lost without him.  Thanks again Dan for coming along.

Check out Dan's blog, Rusty Hooks, and book a trip through Truckee River Outfitters if you're out that way.
