Happy New Year! Hope everyone's year has started off well. Now that the holidays are behind us, it's time to look forward towards two of my favorite things: Nevada mule deer hunting and fly fishing on the Yuba River.
It's that time of year again when we start to think about the upcoming big game seasons. The applications for the Nevada special nonresident guide draw for mule deer tags will be out in the next couple of weeks with a deadline of early March. This drawing is how most of my clients get their mule deer tags in Nevada. I've been running about 60% draw odds over the last 7 years or so and between 85% and 100% success on the hunts.
Get in touch with me if you are interested in hunting mule deer in Nevada in 2008. You can take a look at the photo gallery and see some of the bucks we've taken the last few years.
On the fly fishing front, the Yuba River has started to pick up. There have been quite a few stoneflies out and as soon as we get a little more visibility in the water we should start seeing some decent dry fly fishing. The snow pack in the Sierras is way above average and that is a good thing for the upcoming year of fishing.
Last year we had way below average snow pack and the fishing really suffered. The bugs are starting to come back on the Yuba after the floods of a couple years ago pretty well scoured the river of most of the bug life. We should have some pretty good dry fly fishing for wild rainbow trout on the Yuba River in the next few weeks and the fishing should stay good through July this year. I'll just be guiding fly fishermen in February and March and then guiding both turkey hunters and fly fishermen in April. Hopefully we'll get back to the great spring hatches that the Yuba is known for.
