Truckee River Fish Report for 2-18-2022
Truckee River Fly Fishing Report & Forecast
by Trout Creek Outfitters
The Truckee continues to fish very well and while the cold, clear water conditions persist, the bite can be a little tricky in certain stretches, I.E., along 89-south, or in certain spots in Nevada getting de-watered for Reno’s water source/power generating. So keep a close eye on the flow charts and choose a section where flows remain the most regulated. Our go-to would be the canyon section, from Hirschdale to the Nevada state line where flows are hanging around the mid-300’s. When fishing along this stretch we recommend using indicator set-up’s and fishing the deeper pools setting your indicator deep and with ample weight to get down to the bottom.
In some of the sections with lower water or shallow runs, try using a dry dropper rig with a dry skwala stonefly and a midge or BWO nymph as your dropper to effectively work the skinny water. There has been some action when fishing dries, and the midges have been incredibly active as of late, so there is certainly a possibility of getting some fish on midges, BWO’s or skwalas on top. But if you don’t see fish consistently rising, we recommend putting your trust in the nymphs. The exception to this would be along the lower river east of sparks, where good hatches of BWO’s are being reported, if dries are your thing you might want to make the trip down the hill.
