Truckee River Fishing Report 5/3/13

Fishing has been up and down this week, seems like it always is in spring. Sadly, spring flows on the Truckee River looks like they have crested, good news for us now, could be bad news for us later. On a normal year the Truckee would be pretty much un-fishable with this hot weather we’ve had, now the whole thing is fishing even through Nevada. Like I said it’s hit an miss. Even though we have not had much run-off this year, flows are still high from the Hirsch on down. Easy pickings through the town of Truckee and the ‘shire , but still a bit big below. Bug wise things are about to explode. March browns are on the meal ticket right now, but the pmd, caddis and drakes of the green variety should be here shortly. We also get a nice carpenter ant, we could see those pretty much any day now. Nymphing wise, golden stones, pmds, green drakes, march browns, baetis and caddis should be in the box. They are all in the drift, so you should have them in the lineup.
