I'm game for any month in the spring, March-early June. After that it is too hot in Southern CA to catch trout in my local mountains. Water temps get into the high 60s, low 70s once we get into late June, July.

So I arrived in Elko, Nevada this last week and whew! things are hot and dry here. The water was scary low but Matt (you may know him as statikpunk) assured me that this made for good fishing. So after a quick check of my flies we headed out to the South fork of the Humbolt river. All I can say is bring your big boy truck, the road to this backcountry water gets pretty hairy sometimes. Fishing this river this time of year seemed to be a lot of walking between the pools that are actually deep enough to hold fish and the natural springs that periodically pour into the river. but it was well worth it. this fishing was great. this portion of the river is largely untouched by fish and game, so one has to contend with a lot of trash fish too small to even strike a size 12 but if you can get your Kebari down deep enough there is some nice cruisers down there waiting for a tasty morsel.
Here are some pictures from this week's excursion and I can't wait for next week when Matt has promised me some high alpine creek action in the Ruby Mountains!

Can't wait to see more. We have often looked at a trip to Nevada to fish, but haven't pulled the trigger on that one yet. Next on our list is Colorado, but Nevada is after that. If Gas continues on it's current trend, Nevada may be next.

Hahaha! My office mates are looking at me with questioning expressions... probably wondering what all the hooting and hollering was about! I just noticed that our friend Vagabox will be visiting me in mid-December!! I'm so freaking excited I couldn't contain it! I'm going to start planning our trip now!! Maybe we will rent a cabin in Shenandoah National Park....

Oh, statikpunk... the mustache pic was priceless! You are setting the bar pretty high for the rest of us!
