Fished the Trukee today to try and get one of those monster browns and what a good day it was. Started fishing around 2pm and fished untill the sun went down. Landed 8 Browns and 22 bows. Biggest fish was a 3ib Bow. Used orange stimulators w/dropper nymph. It was non-stop action all day. I was solo again but took some pics…Gotta love the Trukee ;)

Good job and nice pic's. Today was a great day on the river. I love days when you get bows and browns. Yesterday was kind of slow. You can also get a lot of whitefish with a dropper nymph. And they get big on the truckee. Pound for pound they fight better than anything in the river. They like to jump too.
Tight lines GT.

I always release all of my trout. Most of the fish were caught Czech Nymphing in the eddy lines. The bigger fish I picked up were in the pillow of the upstream side of bolders. Almost all the browns were caught on the tailout waters.

Thirty trout for an afternoon on the truckee is fair ;D Nicely done FHFG.
I see at least one fish took the stimulator.
I'm guessing the best shot for a truly hefty brown is down river.
