Fishing should look good for the start of 2023

Truckee River

We are happy to see the river come up this week on the big Truckee and while today it’s high and muddy, we should see flows settle down and the clarity improve in a day or two, especially as the tail end of this storm transitions from rain to snow coming into the New Year. It will be tough to tell how the flows will be after all is said and done with the torrential rain, but we’re positive that it will be beneficial for the short term health of the river, and fishing should look good for the start of 2023. 

If venturing out to the river over the next few days, focus on fishing larger attractors under an indicator such as stoneflies, worms and eggs, or focus on streamers in any kind of slow water you can find. There’s certainly no need for anything finer than 4X tippet and no need to fish small bugs such as BWO’s or midges until we see the clarity return to the river, which may be up to a week or so. 

If you would like to go fishing with us please check out our website Trout Creek or call (530) 563-5119.
