The Nevada side of the Truckee River is the best to fish right now

Truckee River

by Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters

Flows on the Truckee remain excellent. The river is closed from Tahoe City down to the Town of Truckee until the last Saturday of April. The flows are a little low from Truckee down to the Boca Bridge area but they are really good down stream of that. The Nevada side of the River is in the best shape right now especially with the cold weather we are expecting over the next week or more. The middle of the day is the time to be on the water right now with the shorter days and cooler water temps. There has been somewhat of a Baetis hatch on the lower river but for the most part Nymphing with smaller flies and lighter tippet has been the way to go. These flows are perfect for practicing short line Nymphing and High Sticking techniques.

Keep an eye on the river over the next week, there could be some anchor ice forming around the edges and floating ice in the river due to some extremely cold weather. This may put a damper on the fishing for a while on the Truckee. Flows are Town of Truckee 135 CFS, Boca Bridge 364 CFS, Farad 377 CFS and Reno 349 CFS.
