Truckee River

by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

Water Conditions

The main Truckee is flowing at 199 CFS in Tahoe City, 265 in downtown Truckee, and 736 CFS at Farad. The water is cold and swift this time of year, so wade with caution. Please remember that Trout Creek to Prosser Creek is fly only, catch and release.

Tips for the Week

Indicator nymphing has been the best technique with longer leaders of 10 or 11 feet. 4x to 5x tippet works well in the higher flows. Stonefly nymphs with a smaller nymph as your dropper are working well in the slower deeper areas of the river. The fish have not moved into the fast water yet.
