A Birthday Celebration: 5 Dot Ranch

This year my father (John Hogg) picked up a weekend at The 5 Dot Ranch for a still water Clinic with Doug Oullette, and Ernie, the Crowly Crusher.

On the way up the the lake we stopped on the Truckee River for an evening and morning of short-line nymphing.

Hwy. 80

After a good morning of fishing below the town of Truckee, we packed up the trailer and headed to the lake. The first evening was filled with a meet and greet, and Doug gave us a wonderful presentation on lake fishing and the techniques that he uses.

My conclusion is that I have much to learn about fishing the still water.
