Truckee River Fish Report

Truckee River

by Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters

The Truckee River continues to be in pretty good shape. It is still really low in the upper stretches but from Boca Bridge on the California side down through Reno the flows are great. Most of the water is coming through the Little Truckee system right now and that could change anytime. As the winter goes on and if we continue to struggle for water these conditions could change fast. The weather over the next week to ten days should be perfect for winter time fly fishing on the Truckee. The lower river East of Reno could even start to see a Baetis hatch in the middle of the day. Nymphing with smaller flies like a Baetis Nymph is a good way to go right now. Smaller Winter Stones are a good dropper. Smaller streamers can also attract fish in the afternoons when the water is at its warmest. No need to get out too early, the middle of the day is the time to be on the water. Keep an eye on the flows over the next few weeks. Flows are: Town of Truckee 19 CFS, Boca Bridge 235 CFS, Farad 258 CFS, Reno 198 CFS and Vista 257 CFS.

Well along with bringing in the New Year we also got another dose of the full moon phase at Pyramid Lake. Nice weather also played a part in the fishing being quite tough over the past week or so. The water temperatures are in the area of 43-44 degrees which is right around the winter time low. Most of the fish are hanging out in a little deeper water where it is warmer. The Tui chubs also prefer warmer water...... Read More
