Truckee River

The flows are steadily rising this week as we get our first significant bit of warm weather. This has caused the lower river (Boca Conf. downstream) to be running off color adding an additional challenge to fishermen. Don’t be deterred though as the fishing still remains good in the upper stretch around Glenshire and with the opening day of trout season starting tomorrow the 27th the area off of 89 south should be a great option during this time of run off!

Tahoe City: 819 CFS

Glenshire: 2, CFS

Boca Conf.: 3,840 CFS

Farad: 4,200 CFS

9-10 Ft. 5-7 Wt. Rod with 3-5x Tippet Flys: BWO’s, Midges, Skwala Stones, Winter Stones, Worms, March Browns. Sculpin streamers or crawdads.
