As anticipated, the Truckee River is still running high. However, most of the water is coming from dam releases making the river run clear. The main game is still mostly nymphing or tossing streamers. With the continuing large water, big “attractor” nymphs like rubberlegs or worms have been best. Pheasant tails in a size 12-14 also do a good job imitating the march browns. Streamers have been producing some of the biggest fish of the year so far and sculpins in olive or black should definitely so be in your repertoire. The upper river from Tahoe City to Glenshire has been fishing best, but the entire CA side of the river is still a option!

FLOWS:
Tahoe City: 811 CFS

Glenshire: 2,070 CFS

Boca Conf.: 3,440 CFS

Farad: 3,760 CFS

RECOMMENDED GEAR:
9-10 Ft. 5-7 Wt. Rod with 3-5x Tippet Flies: BWO’s, Midges, Stoneflies, Worms, March Browns. Sculpin streamers or crawdads.
