The "White-Fish Float"

The Truckee is still pumping between 4-6 hundy, and still over 2 grand below Boca.  The sun has been high and hot, still melting the snow-laden peaks.  There is hope though, as the river is slowly coming down and the fishing is picking up.  You still will have to hunt for the aquatic gold, but they be hungry and the food is on the rise...
On this July 4th, we had ourselves an 8 hr float and loved every minute of it.  The put-in around Truckee provides a boater with a white water adventure (mainly Truckee Falls which are not quite falls/ Class II-) to Glenshire. Once you pass the Martis confluence, it's game on for the truts.  This is why I will now call this run the "White-Fish Float", since you can enjoy a straight white water run and finish off the day with a fish run.
The boat is still relatively new, but today I think I worked out most of the kinks.  Mainly, I figured out the gear situation and keeping it all secured.
The pics are just two of many fish caught today; all of which were landed on the "Pussy-Cat Baetis"...
