Yeah for rain. The river responded with great fishing and about 50 CFS. Flows are still low. Fish are still stressed and grouped up in pools and highly oxygenated water for survival. If you do fish, fish early or late and practice quick catch and release.
Try a smaller stonefly, San Juan or October caddis to attract attention followed by a Birds Nest or midge. Also, try streamers in olive, natural or baby trout patterns to entice a big brown. Days are getting shorter and nights cooler...the Truckee might just make it but a few more storms and a solid winter would help.
Fishing should continue to get better with cooler weather and increased flows. Fish early or in the evening. Try downtown too. Hope for more rain. Give your fellow angler plenty of room and handle fish as little as possible or try a stillwater as Davis is on or maybe try a backcountry lake like Milton...Pyramid season starts Wednesday so the river will get a bit of a break?
