Andy Burk's Wintertime Tactics for Trout Clinic

November 15-16 2008: We have recently had a cancelation for the clinic and have one spot available anyone that is interested please call or email the Reno Fly Shop

The Best Fishing of the Year is Here!

The fall and early winter bring some of the best fly fishing to the Reno Tahoe area every year. Water conditions are in great shape, the fish are very active and there is no one out there! Our Guides are getting clients into some really nice fish both on the surface and below. With no closed season on most local waters the fishing should remain excellent for the next month or so. Call or email the Reno Fly Shop for more details.

Truckee River

The fly fishing on the Truckee has been sensational. There have been some really big Brown Trout caught as of late. Steve Privette, one of Reno Fly Shop's guides caught and released two Browns over 22 inches in the same hole on Monday.

On the California side the best fishing is downstream of Boca Bridge. The water is really low upstream of that. The flows are perfect from the Bridge down. Nymphing and streamer fishing has been the way to go. October Caddis nymphs fished with a size 16 to 18 bead head Guides Choice Hare's Ear for nymphing and Muddler and Sculpin patterns for streamers fished with a floating line and a Rio sinking leader.

On the Nevada side the entire river is in great shape. Use the same techniques as in California. The best time to fish is from about 9:00 am until about 3:00 pm.

Flows: Town of Truckee 42 CFS, Boca Bridge 385 CFS, Farad 371 CFS, Reno 337 CFS
