Truckee Cutthroat Classic

On the 23 and 24 of Oct, Dave Lass and I competed in the first annual Truckee River Cutthroat Classic tournament held in the NV section of the Truckee River. The event was sponsored by Trout Unlimited and Patagonia and organized by long time friend and Patagonia worker Kevin Weddel. There were 8 two man teams. The rules called for 2 8 hour days of fishing on assigned beats. The team with the most total combined inches of trout after the two days won. There was also a Truckee Slam award for teams catching all 4 major species of game fish in the Truckee. Brown Trout, Rainbow, Lahotan Cutthroat and white fish. Justin Olson of the Reno Fly shop and Mike Sexton of team USA placed first with over 900 inches of fish! Mike put a hurt on the Truckee like no one had ever seen. Dave and i pulled second with just under 300 inches worth of fish. Dave also got the grand slam!
Dave Lass and I with A nice Truckee river rainbow i pulled in during the tournament. My first fish of the weekend was a nice fat TR Brown but he did the deal on me, got down river and popped off. This 19 inch bow ended up being out best fish landed. They are all such beautiful fish down there.
