Truckee River Fish Report for 3-18-2022
The Truckee has seen yet another week of surprisingly good dry fly fishing
by Trout Creek Outfitters
The Truckee has seen yet another week of surprisingly good dry fly fishing, which is not the norm for this river. Thick hatches of midges have been coming off throughout the day on an almost daily basis and mixed in with them have been BWO’s and an increasing number of Skwalas as well. Using a dry dropper set up with a Skwala adult and a BWO or midge dropper will be a fun way to fish the river at this time. If you’re seeing fish sipping midges, using a Griffith’s Gnat to imitate a midge cluster or other adult midge patterns can be a fun and often technical way to pick off these fish, and we’ve also found that dropping your tippet diameter down to 6x will greatly help your odds here.
When no hatches are present or if probing the deeper pools in the canyon section, resort to the failsafe indicator rig using heavy flies with additional weight and setting that indicator deep to find the fish feeding subsurface. We are right around the corner from a number of spring hatches to show including March browns, PMD’s, Caddis and a local favorite, the carpenter ant, and this is an exciting time of year for the Truckee angler.
