Updated April 13th, 2021
Our fly tying supplies have increased by 25% to ensure you have all the materials you need for your next fly tying projects.
Please take a second to get familiar with California’s 2021-22 Fishing Regulations. All new regulations are effective March 1st, 2021.
Some notable changes for our area:
7.40 (80) Little Truckee River – Zero trout limit from Stampede Reservoir Dam downstream to Boca Reservoir.
7.40 (87) Martis Creek– Fishing permitted all year now. Permitted from Martis Lake dam downstream to the confluence with the Truckee River. Zero trout limit.
7.40 (88) Martis Lake Tributaries – Fishing permitted all year now. Zero trout limit.

The Truckee River has great, spring flows right now for anglers. Hatches you might see include midges, blue-winged olives, winter stones, and some skwallas. Stream fishing is also picking up! The best fishing for anglers right now can be found from Glenshire to the NV state line.
