Truckee River Fishing Report 3/26/13

Into our first week of spring and the Truckee River is fishing pretty darn good. Temps have been mild and the bugs have been out. Skwalas, march browns, blue wings, and even a few caddis getting into the mix. Both states are producing fish. I can say not one side is better than another. On cloudy days you will see the blue wings, and in the afternoons you will see the skwalas. I always feel that in spring if the river is not blown, you can experience the best dry fly fishing of the year. Sure, summer, in the evenings are awesome when the caddis are out, but spring the fish are a little less leary and some big fish can be looking up. If we are talking nymphs, which on this river is a must, than all the above mentioned bugs will work.  This is my favorite time of year for the dry dropper rig. Fish are spread out and you never know who will poke their head up.
