Water Conditions

We’ve seen a significant drop in flows on the Truckee River the past two weeks making for some great fishing. Fish are moving into the faster water at the heads of the pools behind rocks and structures. Look for the walking speed water with depths of 3 to 8 feet. Flows on the Truckee River are around 254 CFS in the town of Truckee, 449 CFS in Glenshire and 798 CFS at the stateline.

Tips for the Week

A few different tactics to choose from this week on the Truckee River. There is a morning streamer bite on the strip with natural color baitfish patterns. Indicator nymphing or tight line nymphing are also both good options during the day. As the afternoon progresses, look for some fish to be rising mid pool.

Suggested Flies or Lures

Sculpzilla in Tan or Olive, Pats Rubber Legs, Jigged Squiry Worms, Pheasant Tail Nymphs size 16, Green Rock Worms size 14, Fox Pupa size 16 or Green Drake Nymphs size 14
