Truckee River Fish Report for 11-1-2019
Truckee is Fishing in Winterlike Conditions
by Reno Fly Shop
Cold weather settled into the Truckee River watershed rather quickly the last week. Single digit overnight lows in Truckee has cooled the water off significantly. As a result the Truckee is fishing in winterlike condition. We are finding midge in the morning with BWO as the day warms up. Clients are finding a fair number of fish on their trips with our guides. Predominantly nymphing medium fast water in medium to shallow depths.
We anticipate our current water levels to hold through the beginning of winter storms so fishing should get better as temps stabilize. Watch for cloudy days to start producing heavy BWO hatches. The fish will be on them and your chances to catch trout on a dry fly might improve dramatically.
We have been focusing on smaller baetis patterns and attractor flies in an #14-18. Medium/small thin bodied dark nymphs seem to be the ticket with an ESN setup. Brown trout are spawning, please stay away from redds and areas that are prone for spawning fish.
