The fishing on the Truckee and Pyramid Lake has been good. One day to the next can vary but if you put in your time the fish are there. Afternoons on both waters has been the ticket lately. Sit back and have that extra cup of coffee before you head out.
Two great events are coming up Thursday February 26 Jon Baiocchi from Baiocchi Outfitters will be giving a slide presentation on fly fishing the Northern Sierra. This will be a great opportunity to learn a lot about waters like the North Yuba, Lower Yuba, Middle Feather and Davis Lake and others.
Friday, March 6 at Cargo the Sagebrush Chapter of Trout Unlimited is hosting a video showing of Hank Patterson’s Reel Montana Adventure.
JON BAIOCCHI – FLY FISHING NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THE SIERRAS
FEBRUARY 26 – 7:00 p.m. FREE PRESENTATION AND RAFFLEGARDEN PAVILLION NEXT DOOR TO THE RENO FLY SHOP
Jon Baiocchi will be our guest speaker on February 26th sharing about fly fishing on three different waters in Northern California. Two rivers and a stillwater, that are all exciting, all lovely and all filled with great fish. he’ll be focusing on Plumas and Sierra Counties where you’ll learn about the pristine watershed of the North Fork of the Yuba River, the designated “Wild and Scenic” Middle Fork of the Feather River and the amazing Lake Davis.
Jon is excited about coming to The Reno Fly Shop and giving us all a visual tour about a few of his “home” waters. He’ll show us great fly fishing opportunities and how to take advantage of them. We’ll learn about the gear to use, exactly where to go, including where the access points are, the entomology in the areas and how to approach the fishing during all four seasons. We’ll see wonderful photography (including beautiful flora and fauna), and maps and diagrams that can set us up for great adventures in the future. We will also be given insider tips and current information such as the origin of the spectacular hexagenia mayfly hatch at Lake Davis that just “popped” into existence two years ago. The biomass of this lake makes it one of the healthiest and most productive fisheries in our state.
These three fisheries are only an hour to an hour and a half from Reno, and offer the very best of the Northern Sierra.

MARCH 6 – DOORS OPEN AT 6:30, MOVIE AT 7:30 CARGO at THE WHITNEY PEAK HOTEL
There isn’t a really easy way to describe a Hank Patterson movie other than to watch a trailer and some of his past films. One thing that is easy is this is going to be a great event to support our local chapter of TU.
