never been, but willing to try. let's start with the basics. What kind of trout are in the truckee? big ones / small ones?

weaned on fishing the Truckee R. :)
Have not been this year, soon though. South of Squaw Valley, before the cafe. A little civilized nowadays, but no matter. Great pools by some off the new construction.
Planter rainbows, around 10"-12", but lots of holdovers. Some brown trout, but I have only caught a few. I bait fish, single egg or worm on a #12 or #10 hook, usually #2 line w/5'6'' ultralight. Fly can be good upriver and by town.
