Flows are Awesome

Truckee River

The flows on the Truckee are awesome. The river is flowing at its normal flow for this time of year just about all the way from Truckee through Reno. The fishing has been as good as can be expected given all the variables. The canyon section in California has been the best mainly due to a higher number of fish in this section after the summer drought. The Nevada side is fishing o.k. and the flows are outstanding. Nymphing with a small Winter Stone and a smaller dropper like a Baetis is a great way to go and there have even been some fish chasing some small streamers as well. The warmer weather we are supposed to get this week could change the conditions fast. Expect the river to swell and start to Yo Yo some later this week. It could even get blown out for a couple of days until some of the lower elevation snowpack melts. Keep an eye on the flows before you go. Flows are: Town of Truckee 73 CFS, Boca Bridge 355 CFS, Farad 379 CFS, Reno 340 CFS and Vista 434 CFS.
