Truckee River Fishing Report

Truckee River

Little warm up here again. Descent fishing one day, not so good the next. Dog days of August I guess.

Best thing to do is get out in the mornings and nymph with some crayfish, or caddis and mayfly type combo. Cover some water and make sure you fish the heads of runs/ pools and the fast pocket water slots. It’s also hopper time, you may get a fish or two looking up. Swing streamers early and very late in the day, if you’re fishing streamers.

Flows are still very good on the Truckee River, but flows will drop from Boca eventually. I’m guessing after Labor Day. We are still in a drought. The river shouldn’t be nearly as low as the last few years, but it will get lower.
