Boca Reservoir Fish Report

Boca Reservoir - Truckee, CA

by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

94% and lake is starting to come down with increase in outflows. This lake has been the most consistent but recently with all the fishing pressure it has received fish have spread out! Fishermen will find most of the fish at the North end of the lake to the last riffle of the Little Truckee River (special regs exist here so read up on the rules). Some anglers always have success at the Dam too. Great fishing for the Cutthroat and Rainbows from shore with the occasional Brown thrown in! For those who can launch their boats by the campground there here has been slow for Kokanee fishing. Fishing in the morning for Kokanee think depths of 40-55 feet and use Pink and Orange spinners, hoochies, squids, or spoons and then later in the morning go to depths of 55-65 feet with similar lures in colors of Blue, Purple, Green. Most of Boca may not be accessible due to closure over the dam and we don’t know when the barrier will be lifted! Access to the boat launch can be accessed by taking 89 to Prosser Dam road, across Prosser Dam to backside of Boca. THIS ROUTE HAS BEEN GRADED AND IS GOOD FOR TRUCKS TRAILERING BOATS AND CAMPERS! Lake is at 100% capacity and running over spillway. Was Stocked the week of 7/9!
