Just a small example of our fly fishing waters for locals and visitors alike, include the West Walker and East Walker the Carson River East and West, the Owens River, Truckee River and lakes like Spooner, Indian Creek, Crater & Blue Lakes as well as trophy lakes like Heenan, and Pyramid Lake where giant cutthroat await... to hidden creeks and seldom visited high country lakes also found nearby.

Fly Fishing is our passion and we are THE full service dedicated fly shop serving the Tahoe, Eastern Sierra, northern Nevada and northern California areas. We have been nestled in Northern Nevada's Carson Valley since 1994.  The Valley is surrounded by the Eastern Sierra mountain range which provides an abundance of fantastic trout waters from high desert rivers to lofty alpine getaways.

Beaches that are open on the 1st, from South of 9 Mile to South(ish) of Dago.
