Anyone lose a fly setup this weekend?
I've been a good little fly shop owner/partner... drawing maps, watching flows, keeping up with hatches, tying flies, bookkeeping, vacuuming, makin' coffee...
I need to get these Korker Women's Darkhorses with Boa Laces WET!!!!

Stocking this week for Mason Valley

Doing this on a tablet, and cant make a 'note' as i normally do on the if there's screw ups, I'm going to blame the technology!

WEST CARSON - Will be stocked next week again, it's still very fishable, flows have dropped dramatically.   Little yellow sally was a great fly to toss.  Water is down enough that the pocket water flowing down the canyon is now safe and easier to reach.

EAST CARSON MARKLEEVILLE:   flows again are dropping rapidly.  Alpine County will stock next week and then every week for about 4 weeks after that!  They've been holding off the stockings due to flows, and they'll be making up for it in 4 weeks.

CATCH AND RELEASE BELOW HANGMAN'S BRIDGE:  dropping flows, not easy crossing, but pick your side and start using stones, PT's,  hares ears, princes and if you can present a size 12 hopper to some of the slower water, do!  We're hearing of some rattlers, so watch your step!

EAST CARSON NEVADA:  stocked by NDOW yesterday with Browns and rainbows.   Water levels are still slightly heavy, just watch your steps.  This area also had report of rattlers about 2 weeks ago. 

PLEASANT VALLEY CREEK: officially opens tomorrow.   Water is gorgeous.  It is booked almost all of next week.  The Preserve is booking only 5 rods per day out there.  Call the shop  775-781-7112 to book your day out there.

WEST WALKER - CA the canyon area flows are dropping ( no more heavy mocha latte) and Mono county has stocked in 4 different places earlier this week.   Bunker buster rig, with a bugger on top and a little stone or caddis pupa or prince.  If you insist on dry fly, throw to the softer water.

WEST WALKER WILSON CANYON  flows have dropped dramatically in the last 5 days.  NDOW will most likely stock it next week.

EAST WALKER CA flows have dropped off of 1,300 cfs down the 600 cfs.  This is fishable and some have had nice days.  Flows are too high to cross, pick your side, stay on it and watch for cut banks.  I'd be throwing some heavy streamers and make them wack and want it!  Trico hatch coming get off in the morning, early.. a few sips here and there

EAST WALKER NEVADA C & R: flows are 600 cfs with the addition of Sweetwater creek at the south end of Rosaschi Ranch.  Water is clear, weed beds that were crap for the last 3 years are cleaned out.  Snakes reported down stream from the blackwall at cattle guard entrance.  Hoppers are out, damsels and of course, the go to San Juan does very well.

ELBOW SECTION:  was stocked by NDOW this week.

BURNSIDE: not as of yet stocked, it fished pretty horribly during a creel survey done last week.

TRUCKEE  flows are great, water temps are great (for trout) .  Stones, sallies,  zuddlers, minnow patterns...  hoppers are out, there's a small pmd hatch on a few sections, so a hares hear, rainbow warrior

Okay, the tips of my fingers are numbing from hen pecking on this tablet!
Give us call for more info on other waters.
Have are wonderful time..
Stocking report from Mason Valley, NDOW:
It's been a pretty long time since fish were stocked in the East Carson! 
So remember to have your NV license with a trout stamp.
Take is per day is 5 fish, and a possession limit of 5 fish (meaning: you have 5 in freezer, you don't fish, not even C &R !)
The 1st Discovery On The Fly  has been completed!
Will be in the shop about 11 am tomorrow 
Tomorrow is the last day of the 6 week instruction of 6 very nice young men from China Springs youth Camp, that we, along with volunteers from High Sierra Fly Casters and the Carson City Fly Fishers have guided them into the world of fly fishing.
Tomorrow a surprise for them, no longer at Mitch pond, no longer in the shops' classroom.  Tomorrow it's time to put to use the skills they've been taught by experts, and venture to a private pond with very, very large trout!  Tomorrow the test for we instructors, Tomorrow an opening into the curtain of a lifetime of peace and exploration for these young gentlemen.
Richard Thiel visiting the shop.  Good luck at Crowley!!
