If flows hang on fishing should be very good this winter east of town

Truckee River

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Flows are back up to 200 cfs after bouncing all over the place during the heavy rains. If flows hang on fishing should be very good this winter east of town. Lockwood is an excellent place to fish the east Truckee River if you’ve never done it. Fly fisherman can look forward to some blue winged olive mayflies as the winter progresses. Small dark nymphs and worm patterns under indicators or tight lined in the deeper runs can make for an awful fun winter afternoon. Spin fishing has been productive using small plugs and spoons during the warmest part of the day. Fish will likely be concentrated, when you find one there’s likely more nearby. Bait fishing has been best at Crystal Peak, Mayberry, and Fisherman’s park for summer holdovers.
