The Little Truckee continues to fish very well as the flows stay at 200 CFS. This is such a welcome sight with the last few years of low, fluctuating water found here. However, we can’t tell you how long this will last and taking advantage of these current conditions would be wise. We have still been finding the euro nymph game to be the best out here, but with the heavy winds expected this weekend, you may have to consider using and indicator, and we recommend going with anything in white or clear or even yarn indicators to help maintain your stealth. Last week we saw the dry fly bite pick up with a few good days of baetis and PMD hatches, but we expect this to take a backseat to nymphing during the heavy wind events, although a good mid-morning hatch of baetis could happen if cloud cover but no wind is present. Midges, baetis, worms and eggs are great bets right now and as the river sees more pressure over the last 2 weeks, dropping your tippet down to 6x and downsizing your flies once again may be necessary. Expect heavy crowds out here this holiday weekend, and please be sure to give everyone their space when fishing. So if you don’t like to fish around other people, we encourage you to fish elsewhere for the time being.If you would like to go fishing with us please check out our website Trout Creek Outfitters.com or call (530) 563-5119.
Spring runoff + off color water + overcast weather = great streamer fishing! Yep, I’m calling it, this weekend should......
