On-the-Water Report | Aden Breckner from the Truckee River Lake | early January 2024

Truckee River

by Reno Fly Shop

Aden Breckner, with your On-the-Water Report from the Truckee River. Water temps have cooled with the deepening winter. Trout have settled into their winter water and are catchable if you put in your time. Small dark body nymphs have been the most productive with streamers doing well on the right day.

We will benefit with winter precip starts. This should initiate the BWO in full force and can lead to some of the best dry fly fishing of the year on the Truckee R. Next week there is some precip in forecast so be ready!

January is looking great for both walk trips and floats. We have dates available. Look at your calendars and give us a call before they’re all gone.
