On July 3, 2017, I headed to the Upper Truckee. Clear skies with temperatures in the 70s set the stage for a perfect day for fishing! I hiked for over 3 miles (which was moderately strenuous) where I found some pools of slower moving water that showed promise.

After a few hours I landed my first Lahontan cutthroat. It was a small one so I continued fishing for another few hours all the while trying out different flies that might yield more strikes. I eventually discovered a light colored nymph that proved more attractive to the fish. Landed my second and last fish of the day around 4p then headed back down the car, stopping to check out some Sierran Tree Frogs at a pond to the side of trail.
