The Truckee River currently has great flows with good water temperatures. Fish are holding in the faster water and deeper pools. The flows increase significantly towards state line Nevada so anything lower river is big water. In the evening, anglers have been seeing good dry fly activity. Some flies to try in the evening are multiple species of caddis, pale morning duns, yellow stones, midges, and crayfish. Anglers will also notice at this time green drakes starting to disappear and flavilineas starting to emerge. 

FLOWS: Tahoe City 295 CFS, Glenshire 308 CFS, Boca Confluence 624 CFS, and Farad Exit 686 CFS

Bugs: PMDs, Multiple species of Caddis, Little Yellow Stones, Golden Stones, Grasshoppers, Midges, Sculpins, and Crayfish
Gear:  9′-11′ 5-7wt rod with 9′-12′ 4x-5x leader
