Truckee River Fishing Report

Truckee River

With flows going down on this stretch of water one should see varying amounts of activity but light leaders and stealthy approaches will be required. Access is wide open here now and fish will be found everywhere throughout the system. Trout here will be feeding on a steady diet of Midges in the morning and then turning their attention to PMD’s and Baetis throughout the day then to Caddis, PED’s, and Little Yellow Stones in the evening. Cloudy days can produce some great dry activity here! So, have all stages of these bugs in your box. The rule of thumb here has been 5x-6x depending on the situation. Fall backs to use are San Juan Worms when nothing else seems to work. Hint: the bigger fish in this system prefer emergers over adults most the time, so learn how to fish emergers effectively.
