Public Meeting for LT restoration @ Truckee P.U.D. FEB. 13th.

February 3, 2012


Greetings Local Trout Bums:


Please join us Monday February 13th from 6 to 8 PM at the Truckee Donner Public Utility District Board room.  Dave Lass, TU Northern California Field Director and treasurer for the Truckee River Trout Unlimited Chapter will be presenting an update on our chapter’s work on the Little Truckee River Fish Habitat Improvement Project, which kicked off last summer.


Here is why we think it is important that you attend: Over the past year, Truckee River TU members along with local volunteers, collected critical data along the Little Truckee River (below Stampede Reservoir) that gave Balance Hydrologics, Inc. the information they needed to produce a conceptual restoration design for in-stream habitat improvements. Most anglers who fish the now famous Little Truckee River know that the lower meadow holds fewer adult fish than the upper section, directly below Stampede Dam. Trout Unlimited feels that this conceptual restoration design to enhance habitat in the lower meadow is the first important step to change this. TU will present the restoration concept and take public comment so that ideas, concerns or overlooked opportunities are incorporated in the final restoration design.


We are encouraging all TU members and local fisherman to attend to learn more about this project and provide local insight and thoughts on the design and implementation processes.


The Truckee Donner Public Utility District is located at 11570 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, Ca, 96160.  Directions: http://www.tdpud.org/pdf/PUD_DIRECTION_MAP.pdf


Hope to see you there!




The Truckee River Trout Unlimited Chapter #103


No winter in 2012.

Fall has been hanging on forever just like last winter.  Fishing here has been good courtesy of the warm for winter weather.  If your fishing the Truckee make sure to spread out and cover some water, just because you see cars parked somewhere doesn’t mean people are catching.  Fishable water right now constitutes a good number of river miles, mainly from the town of Truckee all the way down past the dam and in to that forgotten stretch of desert and the rivers end.  Be creative and get out and fish….Matt


Welcome to the new Truckee River Trout Unlimited website!  In the next coming days, months, and years we will continually be bringing you updates on the chapter’s meetings, events, and activities.  We’ll have fishing reports, tutorial videos, some great photography to get you through the winter, and eventually an online store selling TRTU #103 stickers and apparel.  Be sure to follow the blog and like us on facebook to keep up with all the exciting updates!—TRTU #103.
