Truckee Fishing Report

Truckee Fishing Report

Updated September 22, 2022

Truckee River

Water Conditions

Low flows out of Lake Tahoe have the Truckee River warming up to the low sixties during the day. Over the next month — the cooler temperatures at night should help bring the water temperatures down even more. Cooler water will help the fishing improve with hatches of caddis and blue winged olives. The current best areas to fish are below Boca reservoir to stateline Nevada, this will change moving into October. The river is flowing at about 450 CFS there. Upper Truckee river is flowing around 30 CFS.

Tips for the Week

Indicator nymphing with a long leader, streamer fishing and some sporadic hatches mid day. Some blue winged olives, pale evening duns and caddis are the main fall hatches on the main Truckee.As our weather cools down, the trout on the Truckee River will move back into the pools more so than the riffles.

Suggested Flies or Lures

Missing link olive size 16, black elk hair caddis size 18, olive elk hair caddis olive, creek crawler size 6, dead drift crayfish size 6, sparkle dun baetis size 18, burks silouette dun bwo size 18, jigged hares ear size 16, jigged 20 inches size 10, pat’s rubber legs black size 6, red copper John size 14

Little Truckee River

Water Conditions

Very low flows in both sections of the Little Truckee River, but look for water releases in the above stampede in the near future. The bottom tailwater release from Stampede at least keeps this river cool and provides a lot of oxygen for the fish. The section between Stampede and Boca will remain at low flows through winter, unless we receive some precipitation.

Tips for the Week

Fishing with dry flies and emergers are the best tactics on the Little Truckee River due to low water levels. There are a few areas to nymph, but not many above stampede. Better nymphing is found between stampede and boca reservoir.

Suggested Flies

Dandelion midge, RS2 emerger, split case bwo, juju emerger, and griffins gnat
