Truckee River Fishing Report 8/25

Fishing hasn’t really let up this August on the Truckee River. If you know how to play your cards the fish are willing. I’ve been fishing both sides of the river, California and Nevada, and catching fish in both states. This time of year, I’ll fish some fast water, you’d be surprised who’s tucked down deep in a mid river slot. Put the lead on and get your flies to the fish. Fish the inside stuff first with a dry dropper rig and than nymph up on the deeper stuff. When I mean fast water look for areas in the river with a steep change in gradient. Take a nap during the afternoon and get back on it for some caddis action at dusk. Crays, small mays, stones, caddis pupae and hoppers should be in your box. Some double rainbows from the last few days.
