Truckee River Fishing Report 2/15/13


Hard to believe it’s already the middle of February and we haven’t had a significant storm in over six weeks. I guess I shouldn’t get to worried. We had a dry spell like this in 2010 and then look what happened. Next week we will get a good cold storm, we need it. Despite the lack of storms the Truckee River is still up, above 400 cubes from the Hirsch all the way down into the desert. It has been like that for days. Fish are strong and healthy. Lots of blue wings out each and every day now, streamer fishing getting better. Most fish are still in slower softer stuff, especially in California and down through Reno. Skwalas should make an appearance shortly with this warm weather. Remember, overnight lows are still in the teens here in the Hirsch, and we are behind on hatches compared to the Nevada side. East of Reno, trout are spreading out and you can now find them all over. You can also find a lot other anglers out there too. If you see some dude fishing, have some respect for your fellow fly fisherman, go kick rocks somewhere else.
