God Already Knows

 by

Humans have a natural tendency to feel disappointed when things seem to be going against us, often times expressing it through complaints and anger. But that only adds to the sense of helplessness and disappointment we're already feeling.

There is a famous story in Numbers 11 where the Israelites complained against God about the lack of variety in their diet. God provided the people with manna which is a nutritious bread, it fell from the sky and the people were instructed to gather it up six days a week.

But after a while the Israelites grew tired of the manna and complained and wailed outside Moses' tent saying that they had better food back in Egypt. Moses, for his part, complained to God about the people's grumbling and went so far as to say that God should just kill him:

"Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? 12Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their ancestors? 13Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep wailing to me, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ 14I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me. 15If this is how you are going to treat me, please go ahead and kill me—if I have found favor in your eyes—and do not let me face my own ruin."  

This made for a very tense situation. I could imagine the people grumbling and complaining about their daily bread, Moses' agitated complaints to God about the ingratitude of the masses and God's anger about the entire situation.

God responded by saying to Moses "16 “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.

18“Tell the people: ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The Lord heard you when you wailed, “If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!” Now the Lord will give you meat, and you will eat it. 19You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, 20but for a whole month—until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it—because you have rejected the Lord, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?” ’ ”

21But Moses said, “Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, ‘I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!’ 22Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?”

23The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short? Now you will see whether or not what I say will come true for you.”

24So Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said."

It appeared that God was going to give the people exactly what they wanted because He sent quail in from the sea but there was a caveat: "31Now a wind went out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits deep all around the camp, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. 33But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah,because there they buried the people who had craved other food."

The Israelites' complaint was a challenge to God and He met it accordingly.

This isn't to say that we have no right to express our grievances and unhappiness about bad situations. In 1 Peter 5:7 the apostle tells us to "cast all of our anxiety before the Lord for He cares for you."

God wants us to tell Him about what ails us. Asaph did it in Psalm 73 wherein he expressed his sadness about wicked people seemingly getting ahead in life while good righteous people appear to get the short end of the stick.

Habakkuk, an old Testament prophet had a long talk with God about the problems the righteous face (Habakkuk 1 - 3) . He felt dismayed about what he perceived as evil being allowed to profit at the expense of the righteous. The prophet was right in talking to God, he did it in a respectful way in contrast to the Israelites who were ungrateful for what God was providing for them.

 

Comfort In Our Troubles

I recall how a daughter of God went through great travails but didn't complain. She looked forward with hope to better things and even as her situation grew more serious she held out hope for God and for the words that Peter had said in 1 Peter 5:7.

With all that was going on around her, though there were a few times in which she did seem very sad, she did not rail her fists at God nor wail and cry out or scream. Instead she felt peace in knowing God was with her. God sent the Comforter to her and also blessed her to be with her ever loving children whom she also loves so that she would be okay. This daughter of God also had the support of her many friends who love her.

And in time when God called her spirit home to forever be with Him in heaven she went peacefully in gentle sleep and her children were there and know that her example is a good one. For God does remember and watches and will do His work all the time. (“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abram’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:29)

The daughter of God set a good example for her children who are also children of God and all of them have the promise that they all will be reunited in heaven and to do the work of the Lord there for where God is, she is and her children will be in time.

The world is a stressful place. We often make plans and when they don't come to fruition, we get the urge to grumble and complain. But we must be careful to not fall into a sense of entitlement thinking that God owes us something.

He doesn't.

We must remember that we belong to God. We are His creation and He will do as He sees fit.

God watches us all the time, nothing is beyond His notice. We must be patient and wait on Him. Because God is compassionate:"The LORD is compassionate and merciful; he is patient and demonstrates great loyal love." Psalm 103 (verse 8).

God knows about our pain: "“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)"

God welcomes our sincere complaints: "A prayer of the afflicted when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the Lord." Psalm 102:25-27

God is faithful: “Faithful is He who calls you, and He will also bring it to pass.” Thessalonians 5:24

And God knows what He is doing: "For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

So the next time you feel downhearted and feel the urge to complain remember that God already knows.

What Does It Really Take To Do That Home Business?

Home Business - What Does It Really Take

What Does It Really Take To Do That Home Business?

By: Ron LeBlanc

So you're there at that webpage again. Looking at all the smiling faces and all the people telling how they started with five minutes a day and no money down and now they have a vacation home in Aspen. Is it real? Can average Joes and Janes really make it that big?

Yes and no. I have personally met many average people who have made many hundreds of thousands of dollars each in home businesses. Some of them had impressive educations and backgrounds. Some were pretty unimpressive before. I've met a tattoo parlor owner, a bouncer, a college coach, and a homemaker. All of them have made multiple six figure incomes. They were average in terms of their education and work background, but there are also some things about them that aren't average at all.

Did they have to train for years and listen to a home correspondence course of hundreds of CD's? No. Did they go get another degree? No. Did they just get lucky? I don't think so. The reason I don't think so is because they all had a few things in common. Logic tells me that if the things they had in common produced the same result, then maybe that's not luck.

I have known all of these people personally, and I can show you some of the things that they had in common. If you have/do these things then you also have a great chance at success. If you don't do these things, then your chances of success are slimmer.

Firstly, each one of them treats their home business like a real business. If you don't put your business near the top with family and your current job, then guess what - you will continue to have that job. What that comes down to is making decisions like your whole future depends on it. Don't feel like calling that last contact? Can't attend that company function? That $2000 for marketing could be used for those new curta! ins or that new stereo. Those are the key decisions and all these people made them with their business in mind first.

Secondly, they all had a very pressing "why" to their business. For some it was the heartbreak of dropping off their 2-year old in day care. For others it was a divorce or separation and they would have lost everything. In every case these people had a "why" that gripped them like a grandmother who hadn't seen them in three years.

I have seen people who were asked about why they are doing a business or what their goal was and they were vague such as, "I want to get financially free", "I want more time at home", you get the picture. Worse yet some people have a negative reason such as "I want to be out of debt", or "I hate my job". Those are NOT going to carry you through the hard times.

If you can't tell me right now exactly WHY you want to do a business, then you may want to consider figuring that out before you get started. Get really specific and positive. What do you want to accomplish? When do you want to have it by? What are you going to use the $30k in the next month for? How much will you give away?

Once you have concrete answers to these questions, then you are ready to start looking at the how-to. I will discuss the process of figuring out your why in my next article. Don't miss it!

For The Gentle And The Meek Of Heart

by

Joseph

 

This is for the gentle and the meek of heart, both human and crawling creature and all other creatures of the earth.

You have a love for life that enriches and empowers those who are closest to you. You inspire people to do amazing things; your gentleness and meekness gives you power to endure obstacles that come at you; your trusting heart may at times place you in harm's way, but it will never diminish your hopeful view toward life. You have worth and you are wonderful. You will always be remembered and you will never be defeated. You are loved.

 

 

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14

Where to Fly Fish in North Carolina

Where to Fly Fish in North CarolinaWhere to Fly Fish in North Carolina by by James Smi

Fly fishing for trout is plentiful in the beautiful state of North Carolina. This is a brief guide to get you started with your fly fishing expedition "down south"!

The mountains of North Carolina have many streams running through them and provide some great trout fly fishing in a beautiful setting. In most of these trout streams and rivers you can catch all three types of trout; brook, rainbow and brown.

The wild fish tend to be smaller in North Carolina, more so than the stocked ones, but it takes more stealth to catch the wild trout when fly fishing. The stocked trout are easy to catch at first, but harder as the season progresses.

Overall fly fishing in the North Carolina mountains is an exceptional trout fishing haven with over 3,000 miles of trout streams open to fishing through out the western part of the state. All these streams are enjoyed by many beginners and old timers alike. You can hire a tour guide to help you find the best spots, or you can go it alone. Either way, you'll enjoy your trip!

A great place to go fly fishing in North Carolina is the Shenandoah National Park. Here you will find some of the finest brook trout streams in the eastern United States. The park is over 200,000 acres and is one of the largest wilderness preserves in the area. It has been called a paradise for back country anglers who enjoy solitude and don't mind stretching their legs as they search for some great waters to fish in.

Spring is usually the best time to fish the streams in Shenandoah Park. It's during this time that the water turns warmer and "wakes the fish up" from their winter dormancy feeding on some of the heaviest mayfly hatches of the year. According to the North Carolina fly fishing guide, this is one of the best streams in the state for catching trout.

There are other popular spots for fly fishermen in North Carolina. Big Helton Creek is located just outside of Boone, North Carolina, and is a great river for beginners. The Watagua River is also around Boone. It can bring some pretty big fish to the experienced fly fisherman and has many popular sites along the river to fish.

Stone Mountain State Park is located near Elkin, North Carolina, and hosts some of the area's finest fishing streams. This park has a "Fish for Fun" section that allows fly fishers to pay a set amount for one of eight sections of the river allowing them to fish the same spot for the entire day.

North Carolina has some of the best fly fishing streams in the eastern part of the United States. You can use this guide as a start toward your fly fishing adventures in this great southern state!

Apple Banana Smoothie for a Wholesome Breakfast

Apple Banana Smoothie for a Wholesome BreakfastApple Banana Smoothie for a Wholesome Breakfast by by Melissa Roy

6 medium-sized apples, red ones only
3 honey bananas (small and freckled preferably)
3 peeled frozen bananas
3 spoons of white sugar
¼ cup of plain yogurt

In order to prepare for this exuberant beverage, these are the ingredients which are necessary for the preparation of a delicious apple banana smoothie.

First, peel the apples and run them into the juicer. Collect the apple residue from the retaining basin and run it again by the juicer in order to maximize the sap extraction. Peel off the honey bananas and insert them into the blender together with frozen ones. It is unnecessary to cut them into smaller pieces as the honey bananas are quite petite and soft.

Pour the quarter cup of plain yogurt into the mix. Blend the ingredients for a good 45 seconds. Next add the extracted juice and include white sugar into the blender and merge the mix together for about 30 seconds.

This serving can be added with shaved ice as this would add a chilled sensation to the beverage. Originally this serving is adequate for three people and can be blended together with ice cubes. As for the sugar measurements, the quantity can be controlled according to personal preference or replaced by honey altogether, to add energy to the beverage. The ingredients can be halved or quartered according for individual consumption.

The quest to wake up in time to get to work is better encouraged with a supplemented nourishing breakfast as naturally people are sluggish in the morning. A productive person would want to be part of an efficient working environment and the key in achieving a prolific lifestyle.
A smoothie is often mistaken for milkshake although the two are quite similar ingredients-wise. Milkshakes usually offer additional health dosage such as egg whites and protein powder. However an apple-banana smoothie packs all the required fruit fibers and calories in just a few easy steps.

Does Midlife Have You Wondering What To Do With The Rest Of Your Life?

Does Midlife Have You Wondering What To Do With The Rest Of Your Life?Does Midlife Have You Wondering What To Do With The Rest Of Your Life? by by Jennifer T. Grainger

Although midlife is generally defined as the years between 40 and 60, just as with any other maturing stage of life, there are those who start sooner and those who start later.

Your birthday age is not what determines your entry into midlife. It is the feeling that something is missing in your life; feeling dissatisfied with your life, but finding it difficult to know what you'd rather have instead. There becomes a strong inner desire to take charge of your own life-to become your own authority.

Did you Know 50% of Women 50 and Older are Single?

The current generation of women, sometimes referred to as Baby Bloomers, are the first group of women that encompass a big percentage who have the financial capacity to be on their own. They often find that their ability to direct their lives without feeling supervised or monitored by "the man of the house" to be very freeing.

Studies show that during a woman's midlife, changes take place in brain chemistry which cause her to view her life very differently. What was OK before is no longer OK . . . just because it isn't! Seeing things in a new way, and wanting to do things in a new way often meets with resistance from family and friends who demand from her reasons as to why she is feeling the way she is. Being unable to rationally defend her feelings sometimes leads to her feeling emotionally distressed.

Some Questions That Pop Up as You are Entering Second Adulthood.

- When is it my turn?
- When do I get to live my life?
- Is this all there is?
- What's the point?
- Why am I here?
- I don't know what I want, but I know what I have isn't it!

I should be happy with how my life is, but I'm NOT?"

I met an 80 year old women in a class I was teaching at the local community college. She had been married her whole adult life, caring for her husband and 8 children. Her husband was ill and she was feeling guilty because she had been wishing her child would move out, and that her husband would die so she could finally have her own life. (It is never necessary for someone to die in order for you to live the life you are meant to live. There is always a way to liberate yourself.)

She raised her hand to ask a question. "Is it really OK for me to think about what I want for myself?" With that question, at age 80, her "midlife" transition had begun.

It's Normal

The good news: whether you are 30 or 80, if you are having these type of thoughts, you are experiencing the kinds of thoughts and feelings that are a normal part of entering the stage of growth that Gail Sheehy, author of New Passages, calls your Second Adulthood.

The bad news: because this generation of women is the first to tackle this transition head on (rather than fade into the background as many of our mothers and grandmothers did) there are not many role models to rely on as you face what feel like sink holes, sheer cliffs, dense fog and intense feelings of confusion that often lead to feeling STUCK!

Help is Available

Because of the huge population of baby boomers entering midlife, there are books, workshops, life coaches, women's groups, etc., focused solely on the midlife woman's transition.

I have recommended the books listed below to my clients:

Navigating Midlife: Women Becoming Themselves, Robyn Vickers-Willis

Inventing the Rest of Our Lives: Women in Second Adulthood, Suzanne Braun Levine

Not Your Mother's Midlife: A Ten-Step Guide to Fearless Aging, Nancy Alspaugh and Marilyn Kentz

Bring it On! Women Embracing Midlife, Christine Carter Schaap

Dance of the Dissident Daughter, Sue Monk Kidd

Awakening at Midlife, Kathleen A. Brehony

If Not Now, When? Reclaiming Ourselves at Midlife, Stephanie Marston

Facing the Challenge of Transition

Although the midlife transition is normal, it is still a challenging chapter in a woman's life. If you have a few close women friends to talk to, and you begin discussing the distressing thoughts and feelings that you are experiencing you will find you are not alone (that is, if your friends are honest!).

A women who faces the midlife transition with an attitude of daring adventure, a confident attitude, and a belief that the best is yet to come may find the journey daunting, yet worth it when she experiences the deep satisfaction of coming into her own Authentic Self.

Jennifer T. Grainger is a self-discovery coach specializing in women's midlife transition. She works with individuals as well as with groups in her 6-month Midlife Women Finding What's Next TeleProgram. Self-discovery is a daunting journey that definitely deserves support.

Home Ventilation: 4 Ways To Do So

Home Ventilation: 4 Ways To Do SoHome Ventilation: 4 Ways To Do So by by Matt Reardon

Home Ventilation In Four Ways

You're living in a home that has no form of ventilation except opening windows and doors whenever the need arises. So you may be wondering as to why there is a need to install a ventilation system.

Reasons To Ventilate Your House

1. Reduce condensation buildup. Once the air in your house becomes too humid and dense, it can no longer hold in moisture. This is when condensation begins to form, leading to problems such as mold and mildew.

2. Allergens will be properly filtered out. Opening a window or door does not always ensure that the allergens in your home will get out. Without proper ventilation, it is easy for allergens such as pollen to increase in number and become trapped in your home. A proper home ventilation system will ensure that allergens do not get the chance to fester and grow, thus making the air clearer and cleaner for those suffering from allergies.

3. Poor ventilation can lead to musty, damp conditions which lead to respiratory conditions for those suffering from asthma. Also, proper ventilation can aid in reducing mites which cause a number of issues such as itching, breathing problems and skin conditions.

Ways In Which You Can Ventilate Your Home

1. Natural ventilation. This type of ventilation involves modifying particular features of the house that help in bringing in fresh air. An example of this is a solar chimney which allows for air to be heated by the sun, allowing it to rise up through the chimney. As a result, the pressure within the house is lowered, allowing fresh air to be drawn in.

2. Supply-only ventilation. This form of ventilation involves supplying fresh air into the house through fans placed in strategic areas. This system allows for fresh air to be delivered to one area of the house, or the whole house through air vents. However, the system does not provide for a means for musty damp air to be expelled. It relies on air leakage sites throughout the house, such as cracks, to expel the stale air.

3. Exhaust-only ventilation. The opposite of supply-only, this form of ventilation involves expelling stale air, and relying on natural means for clean air to be drawn into the house. Exhaust fans are usually placed in parts of the house with a lot of moisture, such as the kitchen and bathroom, and are run either alternatingly or continuously. Once this moist air is drawn out, fresh air can be drawn in.

4. Balanced ventilation. This is a combination of supply and exhaust-only ventilation systems. This type involves creating airflow of stale damp air out and clean dry air in. This type of system offers control in determining where exactly the clean air is coming from, where it is being delivered and where the stale air is being expelled.

These are the various ways in which you can ventilate your home. A ventilation system specialist would be able to tell you which kind is most suitable for your house.

Copyright (c) 2016 Matt Reardon

Proper ventilation is critical to your health and that of everyone in your home. Please visit http://mouldbuster.com.au/ to learn more about how you can get your home ventilated effectively for a healthy indoor environment.

Simple Solutions With Dealing And Overcoming Dog House Training Issues

Simple Solutions With Dog House Training Issues

Simple Solutions With Dealing And Overcoming Dog House Training Issues

By: Jonathan Cheong

The best house training uses the dogs own instincts to avoid soiling its bed to train the dog where and where not to eliminate. That is the basis behind crate training, in which the dog is confined to its crate in the absence of the owner, and den training, in which the dog is confined to a small area of the home.

In essence, the crate, or the room, becomes the dog's den. Dogs are naturally very clean animals, and they try their best to avoid using their dens as toilets.

This type of training usually works very well, both for puppies and for older dogs. Problems with this type of toilet training are usually the result of not understanding the signals the dog is sending, not being consistent with feeding times, or trying to rush the process.

While the house training process can be sped up somewhat by consistently praising the dog and rewarding it for toileting in the proper place, some dogs cannot be rushed through this important process. It is always best to house train the dog properly the first time than to go back and retrain a problem dog.

If the dog continues to soil the den area after house training, the most likely reason is that the owner has left the dog in the den for too long. Another reason may be that the den area is too large. In this case, the best strategy is to make the den area smaller or to take the dog to the toilet area more frequently.

If the dog soils the bed that has been provided in the den area, it is most likely because the owner has left the dog there for too long, and the dog had an understandable accident. Or it could be that the dog has not yet adopted this area as the bed. In addition, urinary tract infections and other medical conditions can also cause dogs to soil their beds. It is important to have the dog thoroughly checked out by a veterinarian to rule out any medical problems.

One other reason for house training accidents that many people overlook is boredom. Dogs who are bored often drink large amounts of water and therefore must urinate more frequently than you might think. If you notice your dog consuming large amounts of water, be sure to take the dog to the established toilet area more often, and provide the dog with toys and other distractions to eliminate boredom.

Boredom is the root cause of many dog behavior problems, not only house training issues. Chewing and other destructive behaviors are also often caused by boredom and separation anxiety.

Other problems with house training can occur when the dog's den is not properly introduced. In some cases dogs can react to the den as if it is a prison or a punishment. Those dogs may exhibit signs of anxiety, such as whining, chewing and excessive barking. It is important for the dog to feel secure in its den, and to think of it as a home and not a cage.

The best way to house train a puppy or dog, or to re-house train a problem dog, is to make yourself aware of the dog's habits and needs. Creating a healthy, safe sleeping and play area for your dog, as well as a well defined toilet area, is important for any house training program.

House training is not always an easy process, but it is certainly an important one. The number one reason that dogs are surrendered to animal shelters is problems with inappropriate elimination, so a well structured house training program can literally be a lifesaver for your dog.

The Explosive Benefits of a Natural Market

Explosive Benefits of a Natural Market

The Explosive Benefits of a Natural Market

By: Allyn Cutts

Last year a local gentleman opened a Mexican restaurant in our area. The unique aspect of the restaurant is that not only is the Mexican food authentic, but the employees are Hispanic as well. When you walk through the doors, you feel as though you've stepped into another culture.

Six months later, this same gentleman opened up another restaurant on the other side of town. What was the secret to his immediate and amazing success? ...he found a natural market. No one can simulate a natural market. Outsiders go to get the cultural flavor as well as the good food, insiders go to enjoy the "homey" experience.

What Defines a Natural Market?
The most obvious natural markets are cultural, but include a host of other characteristics that you may be familiar with as well. What about homeschooling parents? Who could communicate more clearly, or provide more relevant products than another homeschool parent?

A natural market is simply the part of a market that you have something in common with. It will automatically make you connect with your customers on a personal level, making your marketing strategies more effective.

Why Explore Natural Markets?
You can make immediate and lasting connections with your potential natural market. Let's face it, we're more comfortable and more confident doing business with someone we have a lot in common with. It can't be helped... it's just in our nature. Take advantage of natural markets on the Web where a more personal business is rare and will hold strong appeal to consumers.

How Do You Get In On The Action?
First think about your interests, hobbies, and life experiences. List your occupations, hobbies, club memberships, nationality, language, and background. Wow, there's a lot of potential for natural markets at your fingertips.

Once you've got a nice list, start critiqueing it for the potential market that will make the most impact. The rule of thumb for deciding on the depth of impact is: the more unique the characteristic... the more impact it will have.

Natural markets add a brand new layer to your existing business, or you can create a new niche business from the natural market idea. Whichever you decide...pull out the stops... blitz the market with advertisments... and get ready to add up the profits!

Olymel S.E.C./ L.P. Recalls Pork Products That Were Produced Without Benefit of Import Inspection

by

Joseph

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that Olymel S.E.C./ L.P., an establishment in Alberta, Canada is recalling approximately 4,618 pounds of raw intact pork products because the products were imported from Canada and did not present for import re-inspection upon entry into the U.S.

The Best Northern California Fly Fishing Spots

The Best Northern California Fly Fishing SpotsThe Best Northern California Fly Fishing Spots by by James Smi

One of the best things about California is the nice weather. For people who love to fly fish, Northern California is a paradise on the West Coast. Many streams in Northern California stay open year-round offering great options for fishing trips. There are some great options for the avid fly fisher when in Northern California.

The lower part of the Sacramento River is a prime place to catch California's largest rainbow trout. The river provides amazing year-round fishing opportunities. You can catch some amazing fish in both winter and spring, but spring brings a huge caddis fly hatch that brings the fish out in droves. You can also find some great salmon catches on the river - especially in the fall and winter.

Feather River is a great place to catch steelheads. Fishing on this river is exciting, productive, and challenging all at the same time. The best fishing is in the fall where adult steelheads weighing over four pounds can be found quite easily. In the spring, you will also find some great opportunities to fly fish for some record catches.

If you're looking for a challenging fly fishing experience in Northern California, you may want to look at the East Fork of the Carson River. This stream provides trout anglers with many different experiences - access being one. The narrow, fast-flowing upper reaches, above Wolf Creek, are accessible only by a rough four wheel drive trail, on horseback, or by foot.

This is a classic freestone stream with lots of riffles, rapids, deep runs, and pools. These conditions create excellent habitat for stoneflies, caddis flies, and some species of mayflies throughout the Carson drainage. Large fish are consistent on the Carson, especially around the Nevada border where the river branches off providing a great place to find the fish.

The Truckee River is the largest of three major river systems in the Northern California/Reno area. The good weather provides year-round fly fishing with easy access, beautiful canyon scenery, and feisty wild trout. Experts rate the Truckee as one of the best fly fishing rivers in Northern California. It is, however, a tough river to fish because of the current where it flows into the Nevada area.

These are only a few of the myriad of choices you have available to you for fly fishing in Northern California. You have a lot of options to catch some amazing fish plus, you can enjoy fly fishing year-round in the balmy Northern California weather. It can be a great opportunity for you to hone your fly fishing skills and plan a wonderful fly fishing getaway.
