Truckee River Fishing Report 1/4/14

Crazy to think that another year is upon us. The last few weeks on the Truckee River, in the greater Tahoe-Truckee-Reno area, have been pretty good fishing wise. Mild unseasonable weather has bestowed its blessing upon us, more like a curse really, but of course , mild weather in the winter means good trout fishing. Though air temps are warm, water temps are cold, and its still winter fishing season. Anglers should stick to runs and pools and fish them patiently. Midges are out, and getting all balled up in the afternoons putting a few fish on top, but mainly we’re nymphing, tight line, or indo. Lots of dudes out on the river since there ain’t no snow. Be courteous and move on if you see someone working a piece of water.
