Water Conditions

The Truckee River is fishing well, even with the higher flows. The water temperatures are good with great hatches in the evenings. Anglers should expect fishing to improve more with the warm temperatures headed to our area this week. The tahoe city section is flowing at 231CFS, glenshire area is at 359 CFS, and the stateline area at 806 CFS.

Tips for the Week

The ticket to success for anglers right now is nymphing with a lot of weight added. Fish are still holding in the deeper parts of the river. Anglers should wade shallow and fish the seams of the walking speed water. In some sections, fish have also moved into the faster water.
