I went looking for bonefish in the Truckee River yesterday with my friend John. Sadly, I didn’t find any. I did find some rainbows and browns, however. In traditional fashion, the big fish came unbuttoned. C’est la vie.
I will keep looking for bonefish in my CA rivers until I get to look for them on Grand Bahama, Jan. 14-18. The countdown continues.

Glad you got out!
I get my flats fix here in the PNW stalking carp on the flats. It’s a FANTASTIC challenge that I’d think you would enjoy.
Thanks Chris. Ya know, I’m SURE I’d enjoy it. I need to find a place around here where I can do it. We have lots of warm water options here in the Sierra Foothills, some of them HAVE to have carp. I’m just glad I got out… it had been two months since I’d been out, which is just silly.
Check out carponthefly.blogspot and themrpblog.blogspot as both are loaded with great carping information.
Guys give me a hard time for chasing them instead of trout fishing…oh well, it’s sight casting to fish that are tough and pull like crazy. Plus, it’s a great tune up for the tropical destinations.
Thanks, I’ll do that. I love trout, but I’m no purist. I’ll take a nice smallie any day… top water for a LMB is a blast… I’m equal opportunity. It is just easier to go trout fishing… I know the game, I am pretty sure to catch more than a couple fish and I have the gear and know the flies. I’d love to learn more about carp though… that’s one of the things that has really got me going about bonefish… it is a whole new world full of stuff I have no idea about. Learning is good.
