The Truckee River is fishing great. There are still good flows coming out of Tahoe City. Recent thunderstorms have been keeping the evenings cooler, but in the afternoons, the water temperatures can reach the high 60s so anglers should focus on finding the cooler, deeper water. Anglers are mostly nymping during the day with pale morning duns, yellow stones, caddis, and caddis pupa. Evening hatches are primarily caddis, yellow sallies, and golden stones. Anglers could also try using crayfish this time of year.

FLOWS: Tahoe City 297 CFS, Glenshire 302 CFS, Boca Confluence 550 CFS, and Farad Exit 592 CFS

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