Truckee River

November is a real sleeper month for fishing here on the the Truckee River. Fishing can be very good this time of year depending on the weather. The California side of the river should fish good until the end of this month, then winter sets in and it's hit and miss until around February. The Nevada side will fish well all month into December, well, all winter it fishes, except for the real cold snaps we get. Fishing has been good, the nymph bite, streamer bite, everything. I've seen a lot of browns on their spawning beds, have respect. We have baetis out in the afternoons with some nice fish rising occasionally. More of the die-hard's out fishing this time of year, less folks on the river and good fishing, November is fun.
