The Truckee remains high but is fishing well

Truckee River

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The Truckee remains high but is fishing well. We’ve been at roughly 900cfs for a few weeks but should see flows reduced slightly as we move further into summer. The fish are healthy and happy even with the spike in early summer temperatures and the clarity remained good all spring. No recent repots of USFW stocking the Lahontan Cutthroats but that should change as flows come down. Spin fisherman are catching a few fish on larger spoons and spinners around the western parks and a few good fish out east. Fly fisherman are finding a few little yellow stones and mayflies hatching throughout the day, but the high flows are limiting the dry fly activity. Large streamers continue to fish well in deep runs and pools. Nymph fishing has been excellent with larger stonefly and mayfly imitations. Look for the crayfish and caddis to become more active with the next round of heat and increase in water temperatures.
