Conditions : TRUCKEE RIVER: Runoff is full swing at the moment but we should see it start to taper off soon. In town the flows are around 1200 cfs and the water clarity is perfect for this time of year. With the higher flows, very few consistent hatches have been reported. With a couple years of higher water, we should see great hatches of little yellow stones and green drakes this spring. The caddis hatches should also be pretty thick this summer for us down on this side of the border. Until we get a little closer to the 600cfs mark, efforts should be kept to slower water and larger protected areas outside any main current. As temperatures climb, fish should start to become even more aggressive than they already have been. Spin anglers are fishing larger kastmasters and rapalas concentrating on deeper pools and runs. Fly fishing has been good even with the high flows. As long as the clarity is good fishing should just continue to get better. Nymphs and streamers have been the best bet. Large streamers like Cutter’s Goblin Zuddler Minnow, and the Zoo Cougars have been very effective. Nymph fishing has also been very good if you know where to find the fish. As long as the water is slightly green from snowmelt, try to keep most efforts in protected and slower currents. Two and three nymph/indicator rigs with Conehead Buggers, Wire Worms, and Micro Mayflies have been excellent producers. Expect the river to be higher than normal this summer due to the abundance of water our reservoirs are holding. Until flows do come down, it’s safer to fish from the shore for now.

About: - The Truckee River was originally home to the Lahontan cutthroat trout and the cui-ui lake sucker. During normal years, adult fish would ascend the Truckee and its tributaries (in the case of trout) to spawn.

The Truckee River originates at the outlet of Lake Tahoe and flows approximately 110 miles to Pyramid Lake. Of those miles, approximately 40 miles of the river, between the California State line and the beginning of the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation, is managed by NDOW. This river is one of the most heavily fished waters in the state, supporting over 100,000 angler days per year. Anglers can fish for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout and mountain whitefish.
