2017 marks the 34th year that Frank R. Pisciotta’s THY ROD & STAFF guide service has instructed and guided fly fishers exclusively in the Lake Tahoe region. For 20 years Frank was one of California’s very few ORVIS-Endorsed fly fishing guides. His four-decades-plus experience fly fishing the waters of the Truckee River watershed is unsurpassed. Simply, experience does count and he willingly shares such knowledge with his guide clients; both old and new.
There are eight (8) special regulation waters within an hour’s drive of the Frank’s High Sierra hometown of Truckee. These “wild trout” waters include the notable Truckee and Little Truckee rivers and lesser known North Fork of the Yuba river and Milton Lake. Guiding is also available at “secret”, small creeks and beaver-dam pools scattered throughout the region. The quarry throughout the area are stream-bred Rainbow, Brown and Brook trout.
