This LTFF Truckee River Fish-out on SATURDAY , SEPTEMBER 21st, 2024 is offered to ONLY registered  2024 Learn to Fly Fish (LTFF) students. This fish-out will be limited to a total of 8 students.

Description:  This fish-out will be led by Matt Heron who has a very successful Fly Fishing School in the Truckee area.  You will have a day-long guided session with Matt’s team, with a 2:1 student to guide ratio.   You will fish either the Little Truckee or the Truckee depending on the best fishing conditions that day.   Your guide will help you understand this popular fly fishing destination, including access points along the river, as well as various fishing techniques most effective for these waters.  

Cost:  The registration fee will be $350 per person for the full day to cover guide fees and costs for supplied flies, and lunch.  See below for the plan for accommodations.

Required Gear:  Your standard 5 wt, floating line setup , along with boots/waders, wading staff, sunscreen, hat, water, and sunglasses will work fine.  Studded boots help if you prefer.

Bring a selection of 9 ft leaders across 3x , 4x and 5x

Tippet:  3x-6x….flouro helps

Flies will be supplied and selected based on recent success on the river by your guides.

Meeting Time & Place: We will meet at 7:30 AM (time subject to change earlier, or later based on conditions) at the Truckee River RV Park.  The day will end in mid-afternoon…around 3:30pm.

Accommodations: We will plan to camp at a nearby campground for the weekend.  If you prefer not to camp, you should make plans at your choice of lodging in the Truckee area (motel, Air BnB, etc.).

Registration Fee:  The registration fee is $350 per student.  This fee will cover the cost of the guide/clinic fees, groceries for lunches, our group campsite reservation, and supplied flies.

It does not include the cost of transportation, lodging (non-camping), meals (other than lunch), guide tip, or any other expenses. 

Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a student is, for any reason, unable to attend, he/she may resell his slot (rod) to another LTFF member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the student to manage this transaction.
