The Truckee River isn’t seeing a lot of dry fly activity until later in the evening, so anglers should switch to mostly caddis nymphing in the morning and mid day. If you’re trying dry flies in the evening, try using tan and olive cutters, small elk hair caddis, little yellow sallies, or pale morning duns. Streamer fishing has also been great with sculpin or black leech patterns. Some caddis patterns to try are Net Builder Caddis, Olive Czech Nymphs, and G6 Caddis. Any angler fishing the lower Truckee River should try indicator nymphing, high sticking, or euro nymphing.

FLOWS: Tahoe City 247 CFS, Glenshire 258 CFS, Boca Confluence 624 CFS, and Farad Exit 686 CFS

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