The Truckee Fishout

by J B Brahy

October 2009

Well what a great weekend we had on the gorgeous Truckee River. I think to say we were a little concerned on Friday night whether or not there would even be a fishout is an understatement. The wind gusts were up to 40 miles an hour and it rained most of the night. When we woke up at around 6 AM it looked like it was clearing and our prayers had once again been answered!

We met at 9 AM and the morning started with a seminar put on by Bill Carnuzzo, Guide Extrodinaire in the parking lot. He then led us down to the river and gave us demonstrations on tight line nymphing. Then we were allturned loose to try our new founded method of nymphing. We slowly scattered along the river fishing about a mile of it over the day and we caught and released some 20 or so fish during the day. The evening ended up at Rich Slades summer home in Tahoe Donner for a bar b que. We had our president, Dave Peterson cooking up hamburgers, hot dogs and brats to perfection! Watch out Les Junge!!!

We would also like to acknowledge a couple of brand new members to the club and thus to our new member 'sub-club'. *First is Dylan Coppola who lives in San Mateo with his wife Stacy and 3 1/2 year old son. Dylan drove up by himself so he could turn around and head
back the same day to spend time with his family on Sunday. *Then we just received the application of a good friend of the fly fishing community John Till. John is one of the few Master Casting Instructors in the country and I can say from personal experience he is totally into helping others learn and enjoy the fine art of fly fishing. John has asked to be a part of our new member commission so he can share his abilities with others.
