A DAY IN THE DELTA – 9.28.2015

Steve Santucci, 8wt rods and Chartreuse clausers yielded 40+ Stripers & 3 largemouth. The morning was non-stop and he had a hell of a boat.

Little Truckee – 6.19.2015

Spent the morning on the Little Truckee with Gilligan. It was pretty hot out… Saw my fair share of midge sippers and some bigger bugs coming off in the morning. We had a good time. I was wearing infant sunscreen and a pair a women’s sunglasses so this is the only photo that is fit…

Truckee – 6.27.14 & 7.19.14

Fished with Gilligan on both the CA and Nevada side. Two fish from the July trip are featured below. The first fish took at about 830AM. The second fish was later in the morning. I think 11AM or so. It made two great leaps and put up a fast fight that took me downstream. In the process,…

Sacramento River – 4.11.2014

Fished on the Sacramento from the Tisdale Boat launch with Jackson Latham and North Valley Guide Services. Caught 7 -8 fish on 100% organic flies.

Trinity River – 9.28.2013

Leo’s birthday. Amy and Jason’s wedding. 2 hours on the Trinity River in Willow Creek California. I fished a run above the Trinity River Farm with a black leach and copper nymph dropper and picked up 3 fish all about the size of the one pictured. A large fish flashed my fly and salmon were…

Little Truckee – 7.19.13 & 7.20.13

Fished on the Little Truckee for 2 days (July 19 and 20). I lost 2 fish and landed 1. This fish was on a size 18 green emerger. It was in the fast water and was aggressive on the take. Conversely, my dad’s fish was in very slow water and circled his fly a few…

The Truckee – 7.3.2011

Stayed at the Pacula’s over the July 4th weekend. Fished the Truckee near Hirschdale with Matt K. & Joe. Water was flowing at 2000cc which is apparently 3x standard at this time of year. Same water story all over the west. After having fished the Truckee a few times over the past few years without any…

Solo Mission – 6.18.2011

Ventured into the West Fork on Saturday. Hit the river later than I had hoped because of a small WalMart detour. Fished the stretch that I went on the first time I was on this water. Water was warm. There were stonefly husks all over the river. Caught many fish on mayfly patterns. After about…

Closing Weekend – 1.22.11 and 1.23.11
