Truckee Trip Day One: Travel Day

February 16, 2018
This Truckee trip has been booked for a few months now.  As we counted down to start of our trip we anxiously tied flies and kept up on fishing reports.  Springlike conditions were the norm and reports of skwala hatches were becoming commonplace.  We began filling our fly boxes with appropriate imitations.  As time approached the weather changed and a storm was coming in.
First day was for the most part a travel day.  We did manage a quick session on the Owens just before we ran out of light.  It was more of a casting sessions than a fishing outing.  I was able to try out my new Orvis Superfine Carbon 8 foot 4 weight.  Once we ran out of light we were back on the road towards Reno.
We made it to our timeshare in Genoa and after unpacking and settling down I whipped up a simple steak salad for dinner before heading to bed.
