Truckee Fishing Report

Updated December 21st, 2020

Our fly tying supplies have increased by 25% to ensure you have all the materials you need for your next fly tying projects.



The Upper Truckee River is currently closed for fishing from Tahoe City to Trout Creek. The best fishing is below Hirschdale. Anglers fishing in the Glenshire area should focus on using dry flies such as blue winged olives or midges. Anglers fishing below Glenshire and Boca should use crawdads, small nymphs, and there may be some blue winged olive activity, depending on the temperature in the afternoons.

FLOWS: Tahoe City 75 CFS, Glenshire 80 CFS, Boca Confluence 239 CFS, and Farad Exit 263 CFS

Bugs: Blue Winged Olives, Midges, Caddis
Gear:  9′ 5-8wt rod with 9′-12′ 5x leader



The road to get to the Little Truckee River is not plowed, so it may be difficult to get there. With more inclement weather also coming soon, it may not be accessible until the snow melts. Some patterns you can try if you can get there are Blue Winged Olives, small midges, or small nymphs (size 20-22).

30 CFS

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