The Truckee River is holding strong at 220 CFS through the downtown gauge. Mornings temperatures are cold, both water and air. For the last week, air temps have pushed into the 50s only a few times and water temps haven’t been over 40 degrees

You want to focus your fishing after 11 to just before dark as this is when the water will be at it’s warmest and the fish are most active.

Drifting small dark nymphs (22-16) has been the most productive. Focus on slow water or slow water seams with the occasional foray into deep runs depending on the trout activity level. Overcast days have produced some blue winged olive hatches with fish happily rising to them. A size 18-16 Parachute Adams or a BWO imitation like the Pull Over BWO has worked well. 

Flies we suggest: Pull Over BWO, Micro Mayfly, Perdigon, French Nymph, Zebra Midge, Parachute Adams, ID Theft, December 2020 Truckee River Dozen
