Flows are down to 300 cfs through Reno

Truckee River- Idlewild Park - Reno, NV (Washoe County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

Flows are down to 300 cfs through Reno and fishing should remain great until runoff gets heavy. Our extended cold weather should keep the river fishing very well through the end of winter. Keep in mind that our record snowfall will make the river unfishable for a period this spring. For now, insects are just coming back to life with mayflies hatching during the warmer parts of the day. BWO adults, emergers, and wet flies have been the best bet. Fly fisherman using streamers are also doing really well from Lockwood to USA parkway. Spin fisherman using slow moving plugs and jigs are picking up the occasional good fish.
