Truckee River Fishing Report 3/16/13

All is can say is the fishing has been outstanding this week with the warm weather on the Truckee River. This is how it goes: On the East side of the Truckee River through the Conservancy and such, we are talking blue wing olives of epic proportions. Through Reno, and on the West side, skwalas, some march browns, and blue wings. In California, we are still waiting on the big spring blue wings and march browns, but skwalas are out, and yes, there are fish looking up. Of course, you want to have drys and nymphs of the mentioned bugs. I use my own patterns, which you can get at Mountain Hardware in Truckee. They are designed specifically for the Truckee River and produce fish. I’ve spent my time fishing in both states and both states are good. Yes, the California side is now fishing, which is good because of less people. Folks there are just as big as fish on the Cali side as on the Nevada side, they are just harder to get. Yesterday, I rowed my friends down the river. This is Chris from Montana with a streamer eater.
