The Truckee has seen some explosive hatches in the last week making for some good shots at fish on dries, albeit inconsistent. The overcast days have initiated multiple Green Drake emergences in the afternoons, and the caddis, yellow sallies and PMD’s have been active throughout the day. We are also quickly coming into hopper season, and even though these bugs may not have the same importance on the Truckee as they would in other parts of the states, they can be a fun way to change up your technique when using them with a dry dropper setup.

For the most consistent fishing we still recommend using nymphs either under an indicator or with a tight-line set up. We’ve seen water temps jump up a bit with some 80-degree days last week and in the afternoon yesterday we marked the river at around 57 degrees. These kinds of water temps will move the majority of fish into faster water, so begin to primarily focus your efforts on medium speed riffles, pocket water and the tops of buckets to find trout. With a variety of bugs around, switching up flies to figure out what they’re taking will become important as these fish have seemed to become more fixated on certain emergences at this moment than is typical. The main bugs to have in your fly box in both nymphs and dries will be: green drakes, caddis pupa, golden stones, PMD’s, yellow sallies, and BWO’s as well as terrestrials such as ants and grasshoppers and streamers imitating crawdads or sculpins.
