This LTFF Level 3/4 Truckee River Fish-out on Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25 2022 is offered initially to ONLY those registered 3rd and 4th year 2022 Learn to Fly Fish (LTFF) students. This fish-out will be limited to a total of 12 students—two groups of 6 students each.  

Description:  This fish-out will be led by Matt Heron who has a very successful Fly Fishing School in the Truckee area.  Each group will have a day-long guided session with Matt’s team, with a small guide to student 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.  The instruction will include an emphasis on nymphing and streamer techniques.

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

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.


4-6 wt rod/reel, and floating line.   9 ft rods are fine, 9 ½ ft and longer help on these waters

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

Tippet:  3x-6x….flouro helps

A RIO 12ft streamer line setup on a second rod is ideal, but not required.  Versileaders or sink tips on your floating line will help with streamers as well.  Never hurts to bring your split shot as well.

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

Meeting Time & Place: We will meet each morning 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 reserve tent camping sites nearby for group camping.  You are encouraged to join the group for an evening dinner at the campsite if you choose to find your own lodging in the Truckee area.

Registration Fee:  The registration fee is $350 per student.  This fee will cover the cost of all the campground fees, guide/clinic fees, groceries for lunches, flies, etc.  It does not include the cost of transportation, lodging, 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.
