Truckee River is Fishing Well

Truckee River

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The Truckee is fishing well now that we are warming up a little. Water temps are near 48 degrees bringing the insects back to life. BWO/Baetis mayflies are hatching in fair numbers on pleasant days and should get better with warmer temps. Until runoff increases the flows, fishing should just get better. Spin fisherman using larger jigs and rapala style minnows are finding some good fish from downtown to sparks. It’s a good idea to be aware of the new special regulations that went into effect on the lower river below the Lockwood Bridge if you’re headed out.
