The Truckee is healthy and fishing very well. Flows have bounced around a bit over the last month but seem to have stabilized now at roughly 500 cfs in Reno. Sporadic caddis hatches have been reported in the evenings from downtown to the state line. Good news for those who like to throw dry flies, it’s hopper time on the Truckee. A few larger fish have also shown up recently on small nymphs. Caddis pupa, pheasant tails, and zebra midge are fishing well right now. Spin fisherman using small spinners or salmon eggs have done well near the major parks including; Crystal Peak, Mayberry, and Rock park. LCT and rainbow stocking will continue in the river as temperatures allow.
