Truckee is in Excellent Condition & Fishing Well

Truckee River

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The river is in excellent condition and fishing well. Flows are above prime winter levels at roughly 200-250cfs. Surveys this year provided some impressive fish numbers and size. Fishing mid-day will continue to be good as the cold sets in. East of Reno some BWO mayflies may be found in the afternoons. Small mayfly emergers and soft hackles just above or under the surface have worked well. Nymph fishing continues to be the best method for numbers but streamers are going to be the best bet for the real big fish out east, especially with the higher flows. Spin fisherman have been doing well around the parks for hatchery rainbows. As winter progresses the Truckee River won’t slow down from a fishing standpoint.  Concentrating on the deeper runs where fish have the ability to feed will be the most productive.
