Truckee Fishing Report

Updated October 19th, 2020


With cooler temps in the air, the fishing has been good. Truckee River is being released from Tahoe around 120 CFS. Anglers are fishing well with caddis, blue winged olives, october caddis, and there is some streamer fishing as well now that the water is up. Euro nymphing and indicator nymphing are also proving to be successful methods for anglers as well.  

FLOWS: Tahoe City 124 CFS, Glenshire 129 CFS, Boca Confluence 425 CFS, and Farad Exit 462 CFS

Bugs:  Caddis, October Caddis, Blue Winged Olives, Streamers, Midges
Gear:  9′-11′ 5-7wt rod with 9′-12′ 5x leader



The Little Truckee River is back up to 82 CFS. Currently, there are spawning Kokanee and Brown Trout on the beds. Please respect the spawning fish and do not fish for them. Please also watch your step so you don’t step on any eggs. The bite is good in the evening for blue winged olives, midges, and small winter stones. Small nymphs, midges, and worms under an indicator or tight lining are working well.  


Bugs: Blue Winged Olives, Small Winter Stones, Midges
Gear:  9′-10′ 4-6wt rod with 9′-12′ 6x leader
