Good Summer fishing on the Truckee River

Truckee River

Flows are about perfect from Boca (Hirschdale) on down through Nevada. Not too hot here in the mountains either. Cool overnight lows, and warm afternoons. Kinda perfect Summer weather.

Of course, I’m still getting it done with the tight line/ euro rigs. Stone, or crayfish, smaller mayfly, and caddis. Pretty standard Summer stuff. Fish the slots, etc, etc. Slower water early, faster water later. On the Nevada side faster water all day.

Nice cool flows. Haven’t wet waded on the Ca side all summer, except for the unexpected swim I took today. You almost have to have the waders on around Reno early too. Getting the boys wet early really wakes you up.

So get out there and get after it. Not that much Summer left.
