Truckee River Fishing Report

Reno Fly Shop

Report Date:

Flows through Reno responded to the front end of this storm period when things started warmer but have now stabilized around 300cfs for now. Water temps have dropped dramatically too with the daily high just approaching 35F. This may slow things down for a while, but they will adapt and begin feeding on smaller midges and baetis with just a few degrees warmer temps. Fishing more towards mid day when the water begins to warm and hits its peak temperatures will be best. Just be careful of ice and snow on the banks making wading difficult. 

We’re getting closer to the blue winged olive hatch that begins usually in mid to late winter. Look for overcast, not windy days to begin this feeding pattern. 

Truckee River Flies We Suggest: Pull Over BWO, French Nymph, Parachute Adams, Black BH Zebra Midge 18-20, Olive Psycho May, Ready Baetis, Hot Butt, Truckee River Dozen
