Truckee River Fish Report

Truckee River

by Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters

Flows have continued to come up over the past week. This is a result of some much needed rain and snow in the higher elevations and some extra water releases from Prosser and Boca Reservoirs. The river looks fantastic compared to three weeks ago. As we get storms bringing rain and snow this winter expect the flows to fluctuate some. The river is totally fishable now but don't expect great results. The low water over the summer and fall took its toll on the Truckee and it could be a while before the river is back to normal. Nymphing in the middle of the day is a great way to go right now. With colder water and weather the warmer afternoons are the best time to fish. Small Stonefly Nymphs with a Baetis Dropper is a good way to go. Flows are: Town of Truckee 27 CFS, Boca Bridge 211 CFS, Farad 243 CFS, Reno 189 CFS and Vista 243 CFS.
