After a lull fishing on the Truckee is coming on, the hatches are better & nymphing is the way to go

Truckee River

by Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters

The Truckee in California is starting to pick up again after a little lull, in the action from the hot weather we had last week. The Caddis hatch is still lower on the river but it is making its way toward the Town of Truckee daily. There have also been some Green Drakes hatching in the canyon section. The stretch between Tahoe City and Prosser Creek is still low and will probably remain that way most of the summer. Nymphing either with an indicator or High Stick style has been really good. Stoneflies with a multitude of options for droppers like Caddis, Little Yellow Stones and PMD's are a good way to go. If you are fishing downstream of the Boca Bridge don't be afraid to use a BB split shot or even two. If you are fishing with an indicator in the lower river make sure to use one that is large enough to hold everything up and go a little deeper than you think. The water is still running pretty fast. The evenings in Nevada have been really fun after the sun gets off the water. The Caddis/Little Yellow Stone hatch has been awesome that last few evenings and there are fish keying in on them. The last hour of light is the best time to be out there for sure. The Caddis have been on the small side so far and even going down to a size 18 is worth a shot. The next few weeks should be really good for dry fly fishing on the Truckee. Flows are: Town of Truckee 211 CFS, Boca Bridge 569 CFS, Farad 653 CFS, Reno 509 CFS.
